A CLINIC YOU CAN TRUST

About Athletify

Athletify opened its doors in Aurora in 2016. It started as a small 3 treatment room clinic with a quaint gym and golf hitting net in the back for golf fitness assessments and training. From the beginning, this physiotherapist-owned operation was home to an active approach to recovery for all sport and fitness related injuries.

In 2021, Athletify relocated 4kms north to Newmarket, ON. At the corner of Yonge Street and Mulock Drive, the facility is 5000 square feet and houses physiotherapists, registered massage therapists, a certified Athletic Therapist, and Strength and Conditioning Specialists. Athletify has significantly expanded its golf services and has a dedicated golf training area in the back of the facility. Here, the are three HD GOLF simulators for recreational play, practice and coaching. This high tech equipment is not only used for performance enhancement but also for golf specific movement analysis for injury management with our golf specialized therapists.
