Meet Alicia, FPC’s newest addition. She grew up dancing, is a full time physical therapist and has a drive and passion for women’s health. Was there ever a better match for FPC? Read on to learn a little more about her and be sure to catch her class on Tuesday evenings!

Hometown? Sandyston, NJ


Current location? Jersey city, NJ

What is your background? Dancing led me to search for a career that involved movement. Physical therapy allows me to keep moving, and help people in so many ways. While in school, I specialized in pediatrics which lead me to talk to a lot of pregnant and postpartum mothers. I began taking continuing education for women’s health and the pelvis and felt an overwhelming desire to spread the word. There’s so much that we can do to ensure we stay healthy throughout all stages of life!

What do you do when you don't teach at FPC? I am a full time physical therapist! I treat at Finish Line Physical Therapy in Chelsea, NYC. I am currently starting a women’s health program for athletes within Finish Line. When I’m not working, I love exercising, cooking and spending time with the people I love.

What inspires you? I’m inspired by people that are passionate about life. I love being around people that are excited about what they are doing both in their career and personal life. That energy is contagious.

Describe the energy of your FPC class. Challenging, fun and safe :)


What do you want to be when you grow up? The go-to physical therapist for prenatal and postpartum issues


Current favorite song? Get it by Busta Rhymes, Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliot


If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be and why? A koala bear- those guys sleep 20 hours a day!


Tell us something that not a lot of people know about you. I’m a sucker for funny children’s movies
