MEET THE TEAM
Jacob Erbes DPT, CF-L1
Jacob hails from Fargo, North Dakota and graduated from the University of Jamestown with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2017.
While attending university Jacob had the opportunity to play basketball and football at the collegiate level. Unfortunately, throughout his athletic career he struggled with shoulder and knee pain finding no relief. This ultimately led him to a career in physiotherapy.
Frustration with typical treatment models, and early graduation from care, prior to full return to activity, forced him to ask himself how he could offer more. Apollo Performance Therapy was born to provide a better, more complete care model.
Jacob has multiple certifications including, Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS), Blood Flow Restriction Training, Clinical Athlete of the Fitness Athlete, and is a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer. His diverse skillset allows him to take his clients through the full rehab process, and not stopping until they're back to all of their desired activities.
Exercise truly is medicine, and Jacob is excited to be bridging the gap between the rehabilitation process and strength training.
Kaitlyn Wong MScPT
Kaitlyn is originally from Calgary, Alberta and settled in Victoria after completing her Master's of Science in Physical Therapy from Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland.
After practicing physiotherapy for several years, Kaitlyn felt she could offer her clients more. She immersed herself in CrossFit and realized how effectively she could incorporate some of the core CrossFit principles into her practice. Joining the Apollo team was a natural move as her values as a therapist so closely align with the vision of Apollo.
Realizing there was a missing piece of the puzzle for individuals dealing with pelvic health issues, she decided to further her education to close the gap. Kaitlyn is now specialized in pelvic health rehabilitation, with a keen interest in helping individuals return to activity without pain, pressure, leaking, etc. She knows that it can be difficult to discuss sensitive topics with others, but she aims to create a safe and welcoming space for her clients.
Kaitlyn is excited to incorporate her musculoskeletal care alongside her pelvic health practice to ensure her clients receive the most comprehensive care possible.
Each persons care should be highly individualized. In order to create a plan that will be effective, we will take you through an assessment that includes a detailed history, as well as a movement analysis.
You want to feel good, and we want that for you too. Our first goal is to find ways to reduce your pain (if that's what brought you to us)... and then we work to keep it away.
PERFORM FOR LIFE
What makes Apollo Performance Therapy different? We don't stop at "good enough". Life is about so much more than avoiding pain, we want you to be able to LIVE. Everyone's performance goals look different. We're here for you if your goal is to run a marathon, throw 300 lbs overhead, get down on the floor to play with your grandkids, or keep up with your growing family.
FORGE TRAINING - DOWNTOWN VICTORIA, BC
Located within Forge Training in Downtown Victoria, BC at the corner of Johnson and Vancouver. We will have access to a private treatment space as well as the open classroom space during our session. The treatment room is located on the Classroom side of the gym, which requires either a fob to enter (if you are a member of Forge) or you will need to be let in by myself or by the front desk staff that is located in the main gym area (the door closest to Vancouver Street).
PENINSULA CROSSFIT - SIDNEY, BC
Located within Peninsula CrossFit in Sidney, BC. The gym is located just off the Patricia Bay Highway in Sidney's industrial park. Ample parking at any time of day, as well as access to all of the equipment we could ever need to get you out of pain and back to performing.
We do operate within the gym space. During class times, there is likely to be loud music and the sound of lifting weights. If this will be an issue, let us know and we will be able to arrange your appointment during down time in the gym.
