Robin Dufour empowers people of all ages to overcome their struggles with recurring pain, fitness, and injury.
She approaches each situation with enthusiasm, persistence, and a keen sense of humor, crafting individualized and science-based programs for each person or group of people.
Her goal is to help individuals, families, and teams become experts in their physical wellbeing so they can enjoy a healthy balance in occupation, life, and play.
She loves being able to laugh and celebrate with clients as they overcome difficult situations and move beyond old limitations.
Robin is often sought out to assist with challenging pain issues when other treatments have been unsuccessful. She is particularly skilled with seemingly complicated cases of recurring pain, discomfort, and aversion to regular exercise. She also specializes in resolving the causes of workplace injury.
Her experience as a parent, business owner, practitioner, and enthusiastic student of life offers a refreshing alternative to traditional physical therapy and fitness.
Robin loves spending time with her two daughters, her partner Nicole, and a handful of long-time friends - whom she credits for fine-tuning her sense of humor and humility.
She'll never pass up a walk on the beach, a great book, or a nice glass of wine in her spare time.
Following graduation from the University of New England in 1995, Robin became a licensed Physical Therapist. She opted for a series of challenging jobs in physical rehabilitation with neurologic injury, pediatrics, geriatrics, and sports medicine. She credits this diversity in finding common threads and practical solutions for a broad range of clients.
In 2010, she earned the distinction of Fellow of Applied Functional Science with the prestigious Gray Institute. She went on to become a five-year member of the faculty - teaching movement and health practitioners from around the world.
Robin has a particular interest in Veteran and Family care. In 2018-2019 she was hired as a special consultant for Home Base Veteran and Family Care. Home Base is a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program dedicated to healing the invisible wounds for Veterans of all eras, Service Members, Military Families, and Families of the Fallen through world-class clinical care, wellness, education, and research.
At Home Base, Robin analyzed the existing program and recommended new ways to better serve more Veterans and Families in their Warrier Health and Fitness program in Boston and South West Florida.
Robin is an institutional health consultant, assessing past and current spending on musculoskeletal injuries - the highest cost in healthcare. In partnership with Solve Global, she identifies areas of risk in the workplace and provides measurable solutions for reducing spending and improving outcomes and culture.
She enjoys public speaking to engage audiences in the nuances of movement, mindset, and behavior as an alternative to pills and procedures.
Following her curiosities has led her to pursue local and national teaching opportunities. You can watch a sample of talks given at the Gray Institute here.
She has spent the last 25 years studying the art and science of the human body. Specifically, how we are affected by internal and external forces like gravity, mass and momentum, pain, joy, trauma, injury, receptive motions.
You name it, and we can be affected by it.
In recent years her studies and practice have led her to leave the clinical setting in favor of a more relaxed and creative environment. Five years ago, she left her beloved Studio Be in Maine to open Be Fit Co. in Williamstown, MA. If you like a good "stars aligning" story, ask her what led her to take that leap.
