DJ graduated from Queens College in 2014 with a Bachelor’s degree in Family Nutrition and Exercise Sciences. Prior to joining Physiofitness, DJ assisted Division I, elite-level collegiate athletes at St. Francis College, as a Strength and Conditioning Intern.
From a young age, DJ attributed his passion for movement from his involvement in sports. During his time at New Balance, he hosted weekly group running sessions for Morning Rush Sunday. DJ also played Division 2 basketball at Orange County Community College in upstate New York.
After unfavorable rehabilitation experiences from other clinics, DJ quickly lost interest in pursing physical therapy as a career. However, unlike the standard set and rep schemes on basic machine modalities, our team has led him to become more passionate and enthusiastic about health and movement. DJ is now a Certified Level I Kinstretch instructor and Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist. He is currently working towards applying to PT school.
