Meet Dr. Joshua Smith

Physical Therapist and Head Running Coach

I am a 38yr old Physical Therapist, married with 3 kids, and I LOVE running. I have been obsessed with running for the past 12 years and have been fortunate to progress my running and triathlon career. I am passionate about helping fellow runners and athletes work through injuries and get back to 100%.


I also provide 1-on-1 coaching for runners, triathletes, and athletes at all levels whether they are just learning how to put together a training block to qualifying for Boston.

I have also enjoyed holding frequent seminars with athletes both leading them myself discussing various topics and also bringing in local experts to discussing a wide array of topics. My hope is to promote health within the running world and lead athletes through the frequent ups and downs that a running career can bring.
