Who is Seven Summits Physical Therapy & Fitness?
Brady O'Mara, the founder of Seven Summits Therapy & Fitness, graduated from Beaver College (now Arcadia University) in 1997 with a Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy. He also received a B.A. in Economics from Fairfield University in 1986. Brady is a member in good standing with the American Physical Therapy Association, Orthopedic and Private Practice Sections, and Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Association.
He is CPR and First Aid Certified, and all staff is CPR Certified. Brady has been profiled in Advance for Physical Therapy and Main Line Today as well as several local newspapers, including the Philadelphia Inquirer, Suburban & Wayne Times, Main Line Times, and Daily Local News.
Brady played football and baseball in high school and rugby in college before becoming a marathoner and outdoorsman. He has completed nine marathons (3:04 PR), one triathlon, and a 2,300 mile self-supported bicycle tour through the Rockies. After suffering a severe knee injury in 1999, and not being able to run for close to five years, O'Mara's marathon career is over. But since beginning a high quality nutritional supplement regimen (USANA) in December 2005, he has returned to running 5k to 5 mile races at a sub 6:30 pace. He still bikes over 100 miles per week. His motto is simple: "If you rest, you rust!"
Prior to opening Seven Summits, Brady worked for two and a half years on the Main Line at Paoli Hospital and three and a half years at Montgomery Hospital. He has lived in Wayne since 1999.
