Meet Kate Hamilton of Girl Fit Physical Therapy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kate Hamilton.

Kate, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Throughout my career as a physical therapist, I’ve been lucky enough to have some really amazing work opportunities. I’ve worked as a PT on traveling Broadway shows like The Lion King and Wicked, worked in one of the best pediatric hospitals in the country, traveled to Nicaragua to volunteer as a PT in a small community, and traveled around the world with the US Figure Skating Team.

Through all these experiences, I started to hone in on what I really love which is working with pediatric/adolescent athletes. I have also always been very passionate about supporting girls in sports and wanted to provide more resources for adolescent female athletes to get and stay strong, learn how to take care of their bodies, and build their confidence. So, in August 2016 I opened GIRL FIT PHYSICAL THERAPY and it has been an amazing adventure!

Has it been a smooth road?
Overall it has been pretty smooth (and fun), but yes, of course, there have been some struggles. There has been a steep learning curve on the business side of things, but I’ve been lucky to have a strong support system. One particular challenge with a new small business is navigating the growth process and deciding when you can and should hire. As PTs we are lucky that our most valuable assets are our minds and our hands, so we can afford to pace ourselves with the start-up costs.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Girl Fit Physical Therapy story. Tell us more about the business.
At Girl Fit Physical Therapy we are dedicated to health, wellness, and injury prevention for girls and women. We are most proud of providing girls and women with the tools to stay strong, fit, and achieve their dreams. Through physical therapy, injury prevention, guided workouts, and group fitness classes, Girl Fit Physical Therapy helps girls and women build their strength, flexibility, balance, and confidence.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We plan to stay small and keep our quality high. We love our local, unique, boutique feel of our practice. We hope to continue expanding our outreach to the community and want to keep every girl and woman in our community healthy, strong, and participating in the activities that they love.
