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.

I suffer with chronic ankle sprain and I was referred to Custom Performance by my orthopedist after two courses of therapy at another office, cortisone shots and a trip to an orthopedic surgeon who told me my next step was surgery. Kathleen quickly diagnosed my ankle issues reassured me that i was not destined for surgery. The care I receive from her is awesome - with very thoughtful diagnosis, great exercises I can do at home - all expertly communicated. As the office’s focus is treating runners, Kathleen understands how important it is to be able to run again after injuries. While they are work out-of-network for insurance, their attentiveness (they are not treating multiple patients at at time), their flexibility with appointments/treatment plans and expert care more than make up for it. And of course i have to give an extra shoutout to Katy & Brit for making insurance issues and scheduling a delightful experience!

These guys know their stuff! I've had 3 sessions so far and already am starting to feel stronger and more confident in my recovery. They are positive, attentive and professional. Highly recommend!

I first discovered Custom when training for my first marathon as I got hurt mid cycle to find out from them that I was overtraining, which I considered. The amount of info I learned from Kat and the team was way more than I expected to walk out the door with. I was under the impression they would help me get better and what excercises to do to strengthen but they gave me an array of knowledge to the point where I fell more in love with the sport. As I am now 2 years into running I cannot imagine not having this facility on my side as its great to check in every few weeks or so even if no injury just to make sure my body is even and able to produce a great form going forward.

I love Custom Performance and have been going there for over a year. I first came here because I was having knee and ankle pain and wanted help from people who knew running and loved the sport as much as I did. Over that past year, Cat has supported me through a stress fracture, trained me to be a stronger and safer runner, and greatly improved my running form. Best of all, Cat has honored my goal of "being able to run until I'm 85" and allowed me to focus on injury-prevention and getting comfortable with outdoor running instead of other goals that aren't as important to me, like speed. I wish I could go to Custom PT forever!

Had a great experience going to CustomPT to rehab a stress fracture. The PT was super knowledgeable, was able to diagnose what led to the injury, and worked on a comprehensive plan to get back to running. The staff is super friendly, facility is great (yay for an Alter-G!), and going there was a great experience.

Can't recommend Custom PT enough!
I first visited Custom PT for a metatarsal stress fracture.  Not only did Wendy get me back to running safely and with no re-injury, but I also went on to run my first marathon 4 months later.  I cannot recommend them highly enough - not only for the physical rehab, but for all the mental support.  They really understand runners.

Such a great facility, and Lisbeth is amazing! She is helping me get back to healthy running, something I've been missing out on for several years now.
