Dr. Ilya Gluskin

Doctor of Physical Therapy, Fitness Coach, CrossFit Level 1

A board licensed physical therapist since 2012, Ilya holds both his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Doctorate in Physical Therapy. He spent his undergraduate studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, specializing in exercise science and the biomechanics/physiology behind the human body. Ilya was able to apply his knowledge in multiple settings, including the varsity strength and conditioning program, campus recreation department and his own personal training program. At UMASS, he worked with a variety of clientele from students, faculty members and collegiate athletes, where he utilized his skills in personal training to help them reach personal fitness goals and prepare them for the athletic season. He furthered his education by attending American International College to pursue a career in physical therapy. In graduate school, Ilya spent three years mastering human movement, pathology and treatment techniques. He graduated amongst the top of his class and was chosen as one of the speakers at his graduation.

Since then, he has focused his practice in an out-patient orthopedic setting where he enjoys working with a broad patient caseload ranging in age and functional abilities. With a long history in athletics, Ilya is able to work with high-level athletes competing in football, running, soccer, softball, endurance sports, and CrossFit. Ilya’s ability to understand the demands placed on the human body during athletic competition helps guide his treatments along with his clinical education and experience. He is devoted to learning and further improvement of his skills by participating in continuing education that includes dry needling, IASTM training and blood flow restriction training (BFR).

Ilua Gluskin, DPT Crossfit

His career in health and wellness started over 10 years ago, but is much more than a job; it’s a lifestyle. Achieving optimal health is multidimensional. Knowing the different facets is essential in helping others improve their quality of life on any level. Thus, Ilya took his efforts beyond the clinic, founding MG Lifestyle Solutions, LLC., a lifestyle brand focused around fitness, physical therapy, nutrition and recreation. The brand offers private training sessions with custom-designed workout programs, a guide to proper nutrition, and recreation resources to further promote an active and healthy lifestyle.

Ilya grew up in Marblehead, MA and currently resides in Revere, MA with his wife and son. Outside of work he enjoys playing basketball, auto racing, weight training, CrossFit, hiking, and exploring Boston.
