Tune-up sessions are designed for athletes experiencing aches and pains impacting their training, runners preparing for a race, or anyone who just completed a big competition looking to accelerate their recovery.
Each tune-up session is designed to reduce tissue tension, minimize the risk of injury, and accelerate recovery.
You’ll be reaching your performance goals before you know it.
“Best in NYC! They’ve been immersed in the running community long enough to have a great understanding of what’s needed from all of the runners within it.”

Wondering if a Tune-Up is right for you?
If you’re in a heavy training cycle, a tune-up session will reduce built-up tension and keep you on track to hit your goals.
On the other hand, if you're coming off a big race or competition, tune-ups will help expedite recovery time and educate you on optimizing performance for injury prevention.
Tune-ups are perfect for preparing you to perform or helping you recover from a race or recent athletic event.
But if you’re injured or have a history of an injury that you want to address, it’s best to meet with a physical therapist.
Our expert therapists will perform a comprehensive assessment and review your medical history at length.
Equipped with this information, your therapist will customize your therapy program to complement your training and tune-up so that you perform, recover, and prevent injury better than ever.
“The team at MOTIVNY is professional and friendly- could not ask for a better group of individuals to help me pursue my marathon and strength goals. Great facility and awesome community. Thanks, team!”
How does a tune-up session differ from a massage?
Our expert athletic trainers tailor your tune-up sessions to the areas of your body that need extra attention before or after a run or competition. A regular massage doesn’t often have the principles of sports performance in mind, but a tune-up session does.
Is a tune-up session the same as a physical therapy session?
No, a physical therapy session is geared toward injury recovery and prevention. A tune-up session is more general, deep tissue work to get you feeling ready for what’s next.
