Athletico Physical Therapy has signed a lease to open a new location at East 81st Street in Merrillville, IN. It will be located in the new development located next to CVS at 30 and Broadway, anchored by Planet Fitness. Founded in 1991 in Chicago, Athletico Physical Therapy provides restorative therapy, athletic training, conditioning and personal training with the help of a fully trained and certified staff. Athletico now includes multiple branches in over eleven states across the United States. Construction of the property is currently underway and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017. “With Planet Fitness anchoring the center and other complimentary uses, we feel that this center is the ideal fit for Athletico,” said Brett McDermott
