Meet the Ultimate Fit “Ultimate Fitters”
Curt has over 25 years experience in athletics, from weightlifting to cycling to running. His interest in running was sparked by watching his son take part in running competitions in grade school. After purchasing Brooks running shoes for himself, and experiencing the benefits, one thing led to another. Today, Curt is the owner of Ultimate Fit, where he says that it makes his day when a customer slides into the “just right” pair of shoes, and says, “WOW, these feel like they were made for my feet!”. Along with weekly training, Curt participates in local races, where he enjoys running with his wife and many customers. Curt is certified in Brooks, Saucony, Newton and Asics fit training.
