We celebrated our first birthday as a business – and we marked it in style with a surprise party down at Strong Rope Brewery in Brooklyn!

Having begun the journey in June of 2022, we’ve been so lucky to have the support of all of our friends, colleagues, clients and partners in getting to where we are today. Venturing out into the murky waters of entrepreneurship to start a business is both exciting and nerve-wracking but Brendan was certainly up for it, being someone who we all know doesn’t shy away from a challenge!

Since starting with a staff of one, Martin PT has grown, with Aubrey stepping away from her role in acute-care PT and joining us full-time in [month] and Lily becoming our go-to whizz for all things administration. Our coaching staff roster now boasts [six] members covering triathlon, cycling and running of all abilities and disciplines. Our mascot staff with Maizy at the helm also grew with the addition of Mr. Hank, bringing energy and enthusiasm wherever he goes!

Adding to our personnel and client numbers means we’ve needed more space than ever. We now have two locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Elysium Fitness on the Upper West Side and Breuckelen Athletic in Gowanus are superbly equipped spaces that allow us to see patients from all over the New York metro area.

Out in the community, Martin PT has also formed a number of partnerships with some of NYC and America’s foremost running names. Our first year saw us sponsor the Trials of Miles NYC Track Night Elite 5000m; serve as the Physical Therapy consultants for Bandit Running’s “The Program”; as well as partnering with NYC’s elite track group, Empire Elite Track Club .

On our first birthday, we invited some of our neighbours to celebrate with us at Strong Rope Brewery for cake, a few choice brews and a hearty surprise for Brendan, who had no idea what the secret party-planning department of Aubrey and Lily had organized. Thanks to all who came out and we missed all of you who couldn’t make it.

From our very first client to the newest, along with all of our partners and supporters, we’re glad to have you on board. We’re so thankful for your help along the way and can’t wait to see what’s ahead in year two and beyond!
