About Me

Michael Boettcher

Grown up in Florida, I was already a sports fanatic as a child and was able to achieve athletic success during my time at college as an athlete and wrestling. I am always fascinated by the perfect interaction of body, mind and soul and how to actively influence it through targeted training.

My role models are Gray Cook, the founder of the Functional Movement System, and Mark Versteegen, the American fitness expert who has already led the German national football team to success. At the age of 23, I came to Germany where I started my training as a physiotherapist at the Heinrich Heine University and successfully completed it in 2000. Since then I work as a physiotherapist and personal trainer.

Inspired by my American role models and based on my therapeutic training, I develop individual training programs that specifically target the weaknesses in the entire movement. In 2013, I founded American PT and realize my holistic training approach based on the American principle of the Functional Movement. In order to achieve optimal treatment and training successes, I have continued my education. Each person is individual, no body is the same. My personal claim is to find the right concept for everyone to enable him to live an active and pain-free life.


Robin Blau

My name is Robin Blau and I am a certified physical therapist (B.Sc.). Beginning in January I will support the team at American PT and offer both fundamental scientific skills as well as extensive practical experience in the  field of physical therapy.

My priority? Together with you I want to create the best physical version of yourself and, ideally, exceed your desired goal. With an effective training that combines strength, endurance and coordination, I will both lead and accompany your way from the treatment bench to the training area. By incorporating functional training, your muscles will be trained together in order to improve movements during everyday life, at work and for sports in specific.
