DR. TJ MARTINO, PT, DPT, CSCS
Dr. Martino is a licensed physical therapist and sports performance coach focused on guiding and empowering others to meet their health, fitness and performance goals.
A New Jersey native, Dr. Martino received a Bachelors degree from Monmouth University and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Seton Hall University. He has certifications through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), Functional Movement Systems (FMS), USA Track and Field, USA Weightlifting, and the International Youth Conditioning Association (IYCA).
He is currently an adjunct professor at Kean University where he teaches for the Masters of Exercise Science program and is studying to become a Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS), which he hopes to complete in 2021.
With over 10 years of experience in the fitness industry, he has had the opportunity to work in various settings with active adults, high school, collegiate, Olympic and professional-level athletes; and, acting as the team physical therapist for NJ Sky Blue FC (2017-2019). He often draws from his experience as a fitness professional – promoting a healthy lifestyle and encouraging patients to have an active role in their treatment to ensure long-lasting results.
Throughout the rehab process, he applies principles of the Postural Restoration Institute, Functional Movement Systems and general principles of sports performance to uncover the underlying cause of pain, movement dysfunction or impaired performance. Then, he systematically addresses these issues by restoring variability, building capacity and safely progressing patients from ‘injured to indestructible.’
In his free time, TJ enjoys an active lifestyle of strength training, running and hiking with his family.
