Episode 039: Female Fridays with Alyssa Stewart

Episode 037: Female Fridays with Dana Dreifus

Who’s ready for another #FemaleFridays chat and Coaching with Christa segment? My guest this week on the Female emPOWERED podcast is Alyssa Stewart, founder and CEO of Empower Physical Therapy. Empower PT offers physical therapy, Pilates, and private training to clients in Tampa, Florida. 


From side hustle to full-time practice 

Before founding Empower PT, Alyssa worked in an outpatient setting for St. Joseph’s hospital. While she loved the people she worked with day-to-day, she wasn’t happy with the time she was given with patients nor their practices with insurance. Alyssa began treating clients on the side and eventually realized she could do this full-time by founding her own cash-based practice. 


Enter Empower PT! Since launching her practice five years ago, Alyssa has grown the business by adding a Pilates instructor, personal trainer, and just recently, another physical therapist to the roster. Empower PT is also working on bringing back group fitness classes to the mix.


Tune in to the full episode to learn more about Alyssa and Empower PT, but also our live coaching session! We talk about the importance of confidence when selling your business, framing your offers to clients in the right way, her experience with a mentorship group, and lots more.
