Your Personal Physical Therapist & Coach

Welcome! My name is Bonnie Wilder and I am a physical therapist, run coach, strength coach, and competitive runner! I graduated with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from University of Hartford and Bachelors in Exercise Science from Sacred Heart University, both in CT. In undergrad, I ran D1 cross country & track + field and continue to run competitively. I have ran over 5 half marathons with my personal best of 1:25 and 3 world-major marathons with my personal best of 3:05 which include the NYC, Boston, and Chicago marathon where I was sponsored by Lululemon.


Before college, my passion was sports. I played lacrosse, soccer, basketball, swam, and currently play tennis competitively. In high school, I didn't strength train and was therefore injured a handful of times. When I developed IT band syndrome so painful I couldn't walk or run, I was nervous I would miss the cross country season (my favorite season). I received physical therapy and after 6 months, the pain was gone! I saw how beneficial and important physical therapy is in order to help others, and that's when I decided I would make it my mission to become a PT, and here I am!


My passion is health, wellness, and most importantly, running! I am here to help you heal, recover, and reach your peak performance - I will be aside you every step of the way! I have been competitively running for 10 years including college and understand the recipe to success - a mix of running AND strengthening. 

Now that you know a little about me, I look forward to learning more about you and hopefully working with you soon!
