Bio - Rob Acciavatti, MPT, OCS, CSCS

I would like to let you know who I am and where my experiences in cycling have taken me. I began road racing when I was 15 and gradually moved through the amateur cycling ranks from junior to elite. In 1995 at the age of 21, I turned professional and raced with the Scott-BiKyle-Flyers based out of Allentown, Pennsylvania. I spent the following two seasons in Europe racing with Kaiku, a semi-pro team from the Basque country in northern Spain.

 

In 1998 I decided to leave competitive cycling and return to college to pursue a degree in physical therapy. Unable to stay away from racing, I returned for the 2000 season and began to coach and race with the West Virginia University Cycling Team. In our school's first appearance at the National Championships I won two individual national titles in the criterium and omnium events.

In 2001, I earned the credentials of Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). I was awarded my Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from West Virginia University in June 2003 and currently work as the Practice Manager at Dynamic Physical Therapy, an outpatient orthopedic private practice with six locations in north-central West Virginia. Most recently, in June of 2009, I fulfilled all the requirements for board-certification in the practice of Orthopedic Physical Therapy.

I presently live in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Morgantown, West Virginia with my wife, Lori, and our two young children.
