My name is Mike Kohm PT and along with Travis Jones PTA will be contributing to the Movement Review Blog. Travis and I share a passion for movement and prevention of injury. My Physical Therapy career is now in the 26th year of providing treatment in the clinic. My athletic background includes playing club Lacrosse at a University level, hockey, basketball, back country, alpine and nordic skiing. My passion lies in being outdoors in nature fly fishing, hiking with our dog Hazel, and nature photography. I live in Louisville, CO with my wife Satya Larrea and our daughter Jaya and have PT clinics in Boulder and Denver. I am very excited to collaborate with Travis and offer training tips, and a proactive approach to prevention of injury.

I am a former college athlete and current PTA student with a passion for injury prevention, fitness, and performance. I practice what I preach, by utilizing my studies as personal experiments. This allows me to gather data and see what does and does not work for me on a personal level. Then, I enjoy taking that information to figure out the minimum effective dose and applying it in a realistic approach that can be sustainable for the average person. For the past 5 years I have been a personal trainer and gym manager where a typical day of clients I work with ranges from 13 - 81 years old. Follow me on my journey as I prepare my body for fitness challenges and events, provide injury and "pre-hab" tips through the eyes of a physical therapist, and try to map out optimal health and fitness strategies for readers to embrace.
