THIS IS MY STORY

Hey everyone! My name is Kyle Rice, and I am known as, "The NPTE Prep Coach". 

 

I specialize in helping student physical therapists pass their NPTE without wasting time or money. If you really need to pass the NPTE, achieve your dream of becoming a physical therapist, and become financially independent, then I am definitely your next coach.

But before you hire me, you should know that for over 10 years I blamed God for letting me fail 13 straight standardized exams. ​

Yeah! I've been failing standardized exams since the 10th grade. The SAT's, ACT's, GRE, and MCAT's. All of them, multiple times. The worst part is that at the time... I blamed God for every single one because I didn't know why I had to work so freaking hard, but others didn't. I mean I would study for these tests for hours on end, just to fail, while my best friends would study a couple of hours a week and ace the exams. So do you blame me? It's wasn't fair.

 

I actually decided to take a shot at PT school after I couldn't pass the MCAT (five times by the way) for med school. At the time, and I know this sounds bad but, deep down I wanted to be an MD more because it paid better and it was a profession that everyone looked up to.

 

Physical therapy just didn't have all of the prestige... Little did I know, I would come to find out that there is more to life than money, acceptance, and prestige. ​

Since I was a chronic failure with standardized tests, I decided to take a non-traditional approach to the NPTE in PT School. I actually started studying 14 months before the exam. I read tons of books about standardized testing, audited classes, took 4 NPTE review courses, and took test psychology coursework.

 

I became THE NPTE. This is no exaggeration. I really learned EVERYTHING you can know about the exam. From the knowledge to the application of the knowledge, test strategy, endurance, and test-taking mindset. 

 

Guess what the result of 14 months of arduous, don't know if this will actually help, NPTE prep did? Well, I scored a PERFECT 800. Yes PERFECT! Even though I WAS IN THE BOTTOM 10% of all test takers for my entire life.

I freaking WON..... and for the past 6 years, I've used all of what I learned, including the pain and struggle, and depression, to coach others in passing the NPTE. 

 

In October of 2017, after practicing physical therapy for 4 years, I retired. Even after a 12-month orthopedic residency, 2200 CEU hours since graduation, I retired. Why? Because my calling and passion is to help student physical therapists to pass the NPTE. But really I do this because I want to be there for the people that don't pass it. For the people that need the motivation and to be lifted up.

I want to be there for those who fail the NPTE and feel like, "this isn't fair". Sound familiar? 

 

I told you I blamed God for 10 years of me failing, right? Well, guess what? I didn't actually get closer to him after I got my 800. Not at all actually. 

 

I mean don't get me wrong.. I was appreciative... But, we weren't any closer.

 

Do you want to know when I, Kyle Rice, got closer to God? 

 

It wasn’t until I decided to go 100% in developing The PT Hustle and helping SPT's pass the NPTE. It wasn't until I started to do the job that he put me on this earth to do. Since October 26th, 2017, I feel that every day I am getting closer and closer to him, he now he is my best friend.

 

So, who is Kyle Rice? He is a God fearing man, who has found his calling in helping student physical therapists understand and overcome failure. To help those physical therapists learn how to use failure to achieve a life they never dreamed was possible.
