Lance Moore, PT, DPT, CSCS
Clinic Director – Brighton, Physical Therapist
Lance is originally from central Illinois, but grew up all over the Midwest as a military brat. He developed an interest for physical therapy after getting injured playing football, wrestling, and lifting weights as a teenager. He was impressed with how the PTs seemed to know everything about the human body.
Lance attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and received a B.S. in Kinesiology with a focus on Physical Therapy. While there, he joined ROTC and held several leadership roles. He also stumbled upon the Illini Powerlifting team, becoming a squad leader and informal coach to many lifters. Lance met his amazing wife, Dawn, while working at the fitness center on campus. The two were voted “Cutest Couple of Campus Recreation,” but graduated before they could defend their title.
After college, Lance received his commission as an Air Force officer, and was trained as a nuclear missile operator, eventually being promoted to Missile Combat Crew Commander and Assistant Flight Commander. Lance enjoyed the military lifestyle and all of his great friends in the Air Force, but still felt a huge pull back to physical therapy. Lance received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Colorado at the Anschutz Medical Campus in May 2015.
In his spare time, Lance trains for strongman competitions and general strength. He maintains a certification as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), is a member of the NSCA, and enjoys participating in and discussing strength-related activities. Lance, his wife, and their two cats — Nate Dogg and Charlie Murphy — are all excited that Lance is such an integral part of the Peak Form team.
