GLEN BURNIE, MD — The former Moose Lodge and Family Center located on Crain Highway in Glen Burnie has been transformed into a multi-functional indoor/outdoor climate-controlled turf sports facility and performance center by Chesapeake Real Estate Group and investors.
True Sports Physical Therapy selected the new Moose Athletic Club in Glen Burnie as its inaugural site in Anne Arundel County and ninth in the greater Baltimore metropolitan region. Founded by Dr. Yoni Rosenblatt in 2014, the physical therapy and sports rehabilitation practice signed a lease with Chesapeake Real Estate Group, LLC for 4,000 square feet of space in the former Moose Lodge and Family Center. CREG, a Baltimore-based commercial real estate development and operating company, acquired the 30,000-square-foot building located at 1911 Crain Highway last year.
CREG converted the lodge into a multi-functional indoor sports facility featuring a 6,500-square-foot turf box arena and 3,900-square-foot turf training area, in addition to a fitness and weight room and locker room facility. Moose Athletic Club has been set up for games, practices and training sessions for local youth sports organizations and schools as well as weekend tournaments, specialty instruction programs and camps.
Construction will begin soon on two outdoor multi-purpose full-sized turf fields that are suitable for hosting youth sports games and tournaments. The fields are anticipated to be available for use by spring 2022.
“There is a lack of physical therapy practices in Anne Arundel County that cater to the elite-level athlete and we typically gravitate to locations in sports facilities such as Moose Athletic Club,” Dr. Yoni Rosenblatt said. “The ownership group shares our vision of creating a world-class sports facility in the region and the availability of on-site rehabilitative services is a significant component to the menu of offerings. We were particularly attracted to the possibility of outdoor fields. It is always our intent to imitate and duplicate the specific sports experience whether it be running, throwing, kicking or throwing and that is most effective when full-sized fields are available. The potential for these future fields will create a setting that is unique from our other locations.”
True Sports Physical Therapy provides a wide range of physical therapy and rehabilitation services including orthopedic physical therapy, dry needling and cupping therapy, manual therapy and running rehabilitation and gait analysis. Typical treatments are gearing towards sports-related injuries, lower back pain incurred from repetition or trauma, ACL rehabilitation and foot, ankle, heel and shoulder pain.
True Sports Physical Therapy has treated former Duke University lacrosse player Deemer Class, former Johns Hopkins lacrosse player Kyle Harrison and numerous professional athletes that competed in the National Football League and Major League Baseball.
True Sports also will be expanding their operation into the performance arena, offering speed and agility classes as well as individual, small group and team strength and conditioning.
