The Optimus Story

Daisy and Skip Grossnickle, along with their friend Dr. Tom LaFontaine, PhD, Clinical Exercise Physiologist and health consultant, saw a need for a new kind of health facility in Columbia, Missouri. On April 2, 2007, they founded Optimus: The Center for Health.

Over the past 11 years, hundreds of clients have walked through our doors and seen their lives changed. We have trained a variety of clients, from internationally competitive powerlifters to retirees who just wanted to get their old lifestyle back. At Optimus, we are dedicated to helping you live your healthiest, fullest, and happiest life possible- for as long as possible!
