Leonard Performance Center opens Paxton branch

PAXTON — Leonard Performance Center, based in Gibson City, has opened a Paxton branch at 124 W. State St.

Bellflower native Tim Leonard, 35, owns the chiropractic clinic, which also offers weight-loss solutions among its services.

Leonard said his full-time practice will remain in Gibson City, but he decided to open the Paxton branch on a part-time basis because so many of his clients were from the Paxton area.

Leonard, a former athletic trainer, has operated his chiropractic clinic at 704 S. Sangamon Ave. in Gibson City since June 2009, then added the Ideal Protein weight-loss program to his services in 2010. Since then, 200-plus clients have completed the Ideal Protein program, losing a combined 5,000 pounds. Leonard himself said he lost 90 pounds using the program.

“It works very fast,” he said. “It’s FDA approved. A lot of clinics throughout the United States use it.”

The Ideal Protein program uses meal plans and weekly weigh-ins. The food is ordered from the Ideal Protein company.

Two people who completed the program — Sharon Roark of Hoopeston and Linda Miller of Paxton — are helping Leonard at the Paxton branch as weight-loss coaches.

Meanwhile, Leonard’s chiropractic services involve manipulation or adjustments of the joints. An initial evaluation takes about an hour; and the chiropractic session itself takes only five minutes, he said.

“Any sports injuries I can triage,” he said.

The Paxton branch is open Tuesdays from 4-6:30 p.m. and 8 a.m. to noon. The Gibson City clinic is open from 5 a.m. to noon Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and from 3:30-6:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. To set up an appointment, call 784-5833.
