Chelsea Piers’ Partner in Form, Function and Recovery
The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers has found a new partner in form, function and recovery. In November 2015, the 150,000-square-foot health club opened Fusion Physical Therapy & Sports Performance. The studio provides rehabilitation and relief to athletes experiencing a variety of ailments and injuries.
According to Dr. Carolyn Mazur, the CEO and founder of Fusion Physical Therapy & Sports Performance, the company was looking for a partner who shared its commitment to supporting athletes throughout their journey, from working out at the gym to competing in races, and more. Chelsea Piers proved to be the best partner.
“There is a great overlap between Sports Center members and Fusion PT clients,” said Mazur. “Both attract amateur and professional athletes alike, weekend warriors, and those looking to overall improve their physical well-being. The Sports Center prides itself as being ‘the club that has everything.’ Add Fusion PT to that list.”
Fusion PT offers athletes hands-on care, including Active Release Technique, Graston, Mulligan, McKenzie, Paris and David Butler Neurodynamic Techniques, among others, explained Mazur.
Jared Deptula, the vice president and general manager of The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers, explained the new studio should help Chelsea Piers attract more athletes.
“Combining the most amazing health club in New York City with Fusion PT’s expertise of being able to provide pro-level physical therapy to treat the amateur, collegiate and professional athlete, will make a winning combination,” said Deptula. “Fusion PT works with NFL and NBA players, as well as occupational athletes like dancers, actors and firefighters. The team at Fusion PT knows what it takes to return clients to the physicality that their daily life — their careers and their passions — demands.”
Deptula explained Chelsea Piers and Fusion PT have already cultivated relationships with top doctors in New York City. All clients have priority access to their network of physicians.
“The Sports Center and Fusion PT are excited about what is already an amazing relationship,” continued Deptula. “We both look forward to continue to provide our members and clients alike with the best service and treatment possible.”
The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers is the second location for Fusion, adding to the Tribeca office, which opened in 2002. Mazur started the company to provide clients with a combination of manual rehabilitation and an efficient training program, allowing them to return quickly to their sport or line of work.
