2013: The Year in Review

2013 YEAR IN REVIEW

It's been an exciting year at IronPT and we feel incredibly blessed to have connected with so many people in our clinic, community and online.

As entrepreneurs, we usually go full speed ahead but the end of the year is the perfect time to pause and reflect on how far we've  come.

Here are some of the highlights of 2013:

We saw our practice double in size for the 2nd year in a row!

We were quoted twice in Runner's World Magazine and recognized locally as one of the "Best PT Clinics"  in Essex County.

Most importantly, we had the privilege to partner with our patients on their journey to get better and be better. They are what make this place and this work so special. Together we battled injury and setbacks and PAIN. We honor each person who walked through our doors and showed us what real courage and perseverance looks like.  

Stay tuned for another exciting year in 2014! Lots of great things on the horizon... you'll be the first to know.

Top 5 Blog Posts and Things You May Have Missed in 2012!

Happy New Year and

Happy 1st Anniversary to our Blog!

It's been an exciting year at IronPT and we feel incredibly blessed to have connected with so many people in our clinic and online.

The goal for our blog was simple -- we wanted to help people manage (and avoid) injuries so they could feel better than they ever thought possible.

We fumbled and bumbled through some of the technology, but 5,000+ views later, I think we've finally found our stride.

It's also been an exciting year at our clinic! We've watched our practice double in size, and we've brought three new people onto our team. We've run marathons (literally and figuratively), and we've been recognized by national media.

We attribute this success  to our wonderful community of Caldwell, NJ and to our rare healthcare model where we spend EXTRA TIME to assess and connect with patients as a whole person. Nothing could be better than doing what you love!!

In case you missed it, here were the most popular blog posts from 2012!

Runner's World Holiday Running Streak Challenge

By: Rachel Van Beke After reading skinnyshae's blog post regarding the Runner's World Holiday Running Streak I thought, I could do that. It's a nice easy way to be accountable for getting that 30 min of exercise in. But instead of making it all about me, we decided to spread the fitness love and see if any of our patients here at Iron PT wanted to join in!

The rule of the Holiday Running Streak is as follows:

- run 1 mile per day from the day after Thanksgiving (November 23rd) to New Year's Day (January 1st)

Although the rule strictly wants us to run, we are modifying that and allowing our patients to run/walk/elliptical/step/bike 1 mile per day. So far I have only rounded up one other patient, but hopefully more patients will jump on the bandwagon!

Meet the participants:

Me!

We hereby pledge to run/walk/elliptical/step/bike at least 1 mile per day from now until New Year's Day.

Are you participating in the Holiday Running Streak?

If any of our patients would like to participate, please let me (Rachel) know at the front desk and I will add you to the roster!

Happy Running!
