Chris Gellert, PT, MMusc & Sportsphysio, MPT, CSCS, CPC
Founder and CEO
Chris is the CEO and founder of PTCS Consulting. Chris uniquely is both a physical therapist and a personal trainer with 20 years of experience. In the physical therapy and education field, I bring more than experience to the table. I bring an attitude of confidence with the ability to help you accomplish and reach your dreams.
He holds an Advanced Master’s degree in orthopedics & sports physical therapy from the University of South Australia, a Master’s degree in physical therapy from Nova Southeastern University, and a B.S. in Marketing from SUNY Plattsburgh.
Chris helps physical therapists, new graduates, physical therapy students, and personal trainers transform their lives. How is this accomplished? Through a detailed assessment, identifying problems, coming up with personal solutions, and implementing them. One step at a time.
Following graduation from Physical Therapy school, Chris has practiced in a variety of settings including, hospital, inpatient, outpatient, industrial rehabilitation, and private practice settings. He has managed clinics and realized owning a practice was not his interest early on in his career. As he reflected, he knew he wanted to do more. To reach out and empower both physical therapists and personal trainers.
Chris's experiences in these settings left him wanting to do more. Which fueled him in 2003 to start Pinnacle Training & Consulting Systems. He has solely developed 16 home study courses, 5 live seminars, 2 advanced certifications, teaching the foundation of the science behind the movement to personal trainers and physical therapists. Over the last 15 years, Chris has consulted with dentists, exercise manufacturers, and has expert witness experience.
In 2020, he became a certified professional coach (CPC) through the World Coach Institute (WCI) and the division of PTCS Coaching was formed. He possesses a strong passion to not only help people and change their lives but with a strong mission and vision statement.
Chris is a lifelong learner, an avid reader, has three wonderful amazing dogs, loves to hike, mt bike, travel, and most of all, spend time with his amazing wife Ailie. His wife Ailie has been unconditionally supportive along this entire journey he is exploring.
