There is a good reason why Custom Performance is widely known in New York for the unique ability to help runners and their associated injuries. The reason is, Custom Performance handles patients differently than other PTs. While ordinary PT's will have you execute a variety of exercises and send you home, at Custom Performance, the PT's hew to a higher calling. It's called healing. The exercises are demonstrated exclusively for practicing at home. Exercises are individually chosen for your abilities and your injury based on discussions with your PT. For my Achilles injury, with little progress after three months at a general PT firm, I went to Custom Performance. At Custom, Dr. Hoyt understood what was necessary for this specific injury, coached me and helped heal my Achilles injury so I could run again. So, if you are a runner, Custom Performance will find a way to improve the way you heal and perform. No one knows as much about how to heal and work with runners than the PTs at Custom.

Kathleen is the best PT I've ever worked with. My ortho referred me to Custom PT to work through hip flexor tendinitis in preparation for the BK half marathon. Kathleen is highly knowledgeable and hands on. She set a clear plan for my therapy and training regimen and adapted it based on my responses to the various exercises and workouts. It's also super helpful having an app with a weekly schedule for me to follow, with functionality for me to send her real-time progress reports. Their facility is also just a really nice place to rehab and train. I've loved my experience so far.

I am so grateful for the team at Custom Performance. No only did they get me ready for the Chicago Marathon, they created a training plan, gave me detailed workouts, and managed all my injuries with such care and grace that I do not know if I could have crossed the finish line without them. Every PT there is so skilled, they are always staying educated and ahead of trends, and they community that Wendy has created there makes any kind of treatment a pleasure. The classes they offer are better than (and cheaper) than personal training sessions, and you know you are being trained by the best of the best in the New York running community. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else for injury prevention, recovery, or coaching.

Top notch, running-specific care provided by knowledgeable and compassionate PTs! I trust my health with Lisbeth completely and appreciate her working with me to get me back to running health. Other pluses: AlterG to ramp back up to training provided with rehab treatment, Rapid Recovery Boots which can be also be used at each visit, clean facilities and friendly staff and patient population!

Custom is an amazing community with a great staff to boot! I have been suffering from ITBS for years, and just recently ran 4 miles non-stop pain free. Couldn't have done it without this awesome team.

I am writing to express my sincerest gratitude for all the support I have received throughout my marathon training. To be frank, when I first decided to make the financial commitment to come to Custom , I didn't know what it was going to be like, but everyone said it was the best so I trusted. I came to find that it was worth more than I bargained for and I want to thank you. 

I felt listened, I felt taken care of, I learned, I listened. I didn't just get hands on treatment,  I received a holistic approach to my training and got the attention I was looking for that I didn't find elsewhere. It was a team effort for sure and most importantly I felt part of a community of people who care about the sport and simply 'got it'. Now I get why people say Custom is the best, because it truly is.

I started running last year and Cat and the custom performance team helped me overcome injuries - ankles and knee- correct my running form, and achieve my goals! Two half marathons in less than a year. This team made the impossible possible with care and kindness from the front desk to the PT table.

Entire staff are professional and the place runs like a well oiled machine. Facilities are clean, spacious, and modern with boutique gym vibes. I'm in great care under Kathleen - her approach is very practical and centered around addressing and fixing the underlying issue of injury. She answers all of my questions directly and patiently.
