What is Finish Line Physical Therapy?
With over 12,000 square feet of space in Chelsea and the most advanced treatment equipment available, Finish Line PT helps an active population recover from injury and achieve optimal function.
FLPT offers 45-minute one-on-one treatment sessions with a physical therapist to ensure individualized care and attention for all their patients. They are a community of educators, runners, triathletes, coaches, and all around active individuals who share the same goals as you. With over a decade of experience, they have expanded to not only include physical therapy services but have developed a facility that embodies the complete athlete. Finish Line PT offers PT, Cryotherapy, NormaTec Compression Sleeves, AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmills, sports massage, and fitness classes through THE FOUNDRY powered by Finish Line PT.
Finish Line keeps you in the game for the long haul. They've been treating me for over 4 years and without my PT Raechel Bugner, I'd be broken.
Will there be bag drop?

What is Global #SportsBraSquad Day
The #SportsBraSquad started as a way for women to ditch their shirts along with their insecurities, and show the world what strength looks like. In 2015, the National Eating Disorders Association found that 70% of women don’t like their bodies. 70%! That’s a disappointing and frustrating statistic and the only way we can combat the self-loathing and hatred women feel towards their bodies is to change the way we see strength.
But ditching your shirt for the first time can be terrifying! There's strength in numbers which is why on June 24th, Sports Bra Squads all over the world will be coming together to show the world that our bodies are strong as hell!
