Hi! I'm Hilary Granat, Physical Therapist and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, founder of Core Total Wellness and co-founder/co-owner of C.O.R.E. Physical Therapy in Washington, DC.
I am passionate about health, wellness and rehab and have alway been a fitness nut! I consider myself a life-long learner of all things to do with health, the body, rehabilitation, wellness and nutrition. The more I learn, the more I realize how much more there is to know. This explains my long and winding career path in health and healing. After starting as a personal trainer in a health club and feeling like I found my calling, I pursued a Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology. But, soon after graduating, I decided there was so much more I wanted and needed to know that I jumped right back into school to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy, which I have been working as since 2000. Along the way, I became certified in Pilates and now integrate it into rehabilitation with my clients. They love it and I love it! I was fortunate enough to open my dream physical therapy practice in 2006, CORE Physical Therapy, LLC which integrates rehabilitation and fitness all under one roof.
Fueled by my own personal health journey and my passion and desire to learn more about nutrition, I discovered the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and became an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. Through my education and experience, I can assess the body from a holistic point of view and provide comprehensive treatment programs. I consider myself very lucky in that I truly love what I do. I wake up every day, happy to go to work as it does not even feel like work to me. I get to help people heal and thrive daily. It doesn’t get much better than that!
