Tatyana Lopez is a Certified Athletic Trainer with Fit for Work as part of Madison Physical Therapy. She earned a B.S in Athletic Training and Masters in Public Health with a focus on Nutrition. Her many years of experience and personal background in athletics and sports, gave her the opportunity to work with ARC Athletics Tribeca performing sports rehab and personal training. She's worked as an orthotic fitter at Bellevue Hospital, as well as a High School & Collegiate Division 3 Athletic Trainer. Tatyana’s favorite part of the rehabilitation process is meeting individuals who become excited about prevention of injury and are willing to take charge of their journey to health. She didn’t know what she was getting herself into when she began to interview with Fit for Work, but quickly learned that Madison’s culture is about utilizing individual strengths to flourish personally and professionally. A true outdoors person, Tatyana enjoys mountain hiking upstate in her free time.

Justin has been deeply involved in the athletic world from the start; his first job was at LIU as a graduate assistant
athletic trainer. With a Masters in Exercise Science (Summa Cum Laude) with a concentration in Strength and
Conditioning and Nutrition from LIU, Justin has been able to both treat and educate patients - noting it to be his
favorite part of the process. He places great importance on learning about new medical advancements so that he can stay at the top of his game. Justin enjoys working one-on-one with his patients in that the relationship built allows for
him to be present during every step of the patient's progress. This has made personal training a natural path for Justin. To keep with the healthy and active lifestyle he teaches, Justin stays as engaged as possible by playing sports -
whether on land or sea.
His favorite quote is:
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
