Our Story

Dr. Cory Abbate has been an athlete his entire life- from peewee football to training with world class athletes, Dr. Abbate heard a calling deep within to live an active lifestyle and he found the answer.

An early interest in high school wrestling drew Dr. Abbate to pursue academics in exercise science and physical therapy.

Upon graduation, Dr. Abbate worked in a typical outpatient physical therapy clinic, but soon discovered this was not the best option that athletes have. Working with four patients every hour left little time to sharpen his manual skills or really develop a strong relationship with the people he was helping.

The opportunity of a lifetime came one day when he was asked to work at Royal Caribbean Studios to help performers one-on-one recover from injury and get back to what they love doing- dance!

After helping out hundreds of elite level performing artists- dancers, acrobats, aerialists & singers, Dr. Abbate finally felt like he could make a lasting impression on improving athletes return to sport.

In pursuit of helping out more people, Dr. Abbate began to work with combat sport athletes and olympic weightlifters. This provided a challenging environment- one that finely tuned a unique approach to physical therapy.
