i’move is excited to announce the opening of its clinic in Muskegon inside the Boys and Girls Club of the Muskegon Lakeshore (BGCML) at 900 W
Currently, i’move has locations in Spring Lake, Grand Haven, Whitehall, Holland, Grand Rapids,
and Rockford. The Muskegon location marks its ninth clinic in West Michigan.
Partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of the Muskegon Lakeshore to establish a clinic in
Muskegon opens the door for new opportunities. Founded in 2014, Boys and Girls Club of the
Muskegon Lakeshore operates to ensure that all youth in Muskegon County reach their full
potential and become caring, productive members of the community. BGCML took ownership of
the building that was formerly Lakeshore Fitness Center in May, 2021.
“The more I learned about BGCML, the more excited I was to realize their goals and i’move’s
goals had significant overlap,” says i’move clinic owner and physical therapist, Marty Sytsema.
“I’m a Muskegon guy. I had been watching what was happening with the Lakeshore Fitness
Center building, and I was very excited when I heard BGCML was taking over the building. I
learned to swim there, had a membership to the YMCA several times over the last 40 years, and
I’ve always appreciated the role that building plays in our community. There were too many
potential synergies not to pursue a partnership.”
The staff at i’move pride themselves on creating personal relationships with their clients in order
to customize training exercises to get people moving, whether they are training for a marathon
or recovering from injury. To do this, i’move offers physical therapy, fitness classes, personal
training, and puts a special emphasis on women’s health.
“i’move is not your typical physical therapy company,” says Sytsema. “We know that our
patients’ body, mind, and soul are all intimately related, and we understand that if our patients
are not smiling during their therapy, fitness class, or personal training that we are not meeting
our goal of connecting with the patient in a fun way.”
