Dr. Annemarie Alf, DPT
Annemarie Alf, PT, DPT, CSCS is North County San Diego’s leading Doctor of Physical Therapy who specializes in returning athletes of all ages back to the sports and activities they love.
She founded OLYMPUS MOVEMENT PERFORMANCE because she wanted to create a space that focuses on the WHOLE person and athlete. After spending many years in her young professional career with youth and high school aged athletes, she has returned to those roots in the foundation of creating Olympus Movement Performance. Annemarie focuses on returning athletes of all ages from the rehab phase to the performance/ return to sport or activity phase. As an athlete herself, she has fully recovered from a full knee reconstruction of an ACL repair, MCL and medial/ lateral meniscal tears to all the sports she loves.
But Olympus doesn’t just focus on the young athlete. Annemarie has seen a huge void in the traditional medical and physical therapy settings in actually addressing the root causes of injuries and ‘diseases.’ For this reason she has created the Holistic/ Integrated approach that Functional Medicine/ Nutrition and Hormone Balancing allows for to assess and treat the WHOLE person.
ANNEMARIE graduated with a DOCTORATE IN PHYSICAL THERAPY from UNIVERSITY OF ST AUGUSTINE. She is certified as A STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH and a Certified SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) provider.
Annemarie, an athlete herself, is a National Champion Waterski Jumper, CrossFit athlete, UltraRunner and IRONMAN Canada finisher.
She was the first American Physical Therapist to work with any Chinese Olympic Team at an Olympic Games. As the Performance Physical Therapist to the Men's and Women's Chinese Olympic Gymnastics Team she attended the 2012 London Olympic Games and provided daily evaluation and treatment of all gymnastics athletes. The Chinese Olympic Gymnastic team achieved eight total gymnastics medals, more than any other nation.
Currently, Annemarie is the Strength and Conditioning Coach and Physical Therapist to the San Diego Sockers.

Dr. Jessica Robinson, DPT
Jessica Robinson, DPT, graduated from the University of California, San Diego with her Bachelor’s of Science in 2009 then went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Washington in 2016. She has been working in outpatient orthopedics for over 5 years with an emphasis in post-operative rehab. Her professional interests include general orthopedics, sports and dance medicine.
Jessica grew up as a gymnast and competitive dancer. She has taught dance and coached a competitive collegiate team and continues to enjoy working with this population. She became interested in athletic training and physical therapy after sustaining a knee injury in gymnastics and having to undergo several surgical repairs. This experience has given her a deeper understanding and empathy for those recovering from an injury/surgery. She is a strong believer that an individual is not defined by their injury or diagnosis and strives to return patients to their full functional capacity and achieve their individual goals.
She is certified in Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation and has M1 level Graston Technique training.
In her spare time, Jessica enjoys spending time with her family and friends, dancing, baking, hiking, and generally exploring throughout San Diego.
PERFORMANCE FITNESS COACHES
Mikaela started as a regular member and athlete in the CrossFit community and her love for fitness grew into a desire to coach and help others. She has been coaching for 4 years, as a CrossFit Level 1 Coach and has also been training for 8 years. She enjoys competing in CrossFit, running, hiking but also has a background in motocross. Her favorite part of functional fitness and the style of training that we do at Olympus Movement Performance is that it allows you to focus more on what your body can do and see what you are physically capable of rather than the entire focus being on aesthetics, although that is a nice perk. She is also a nutrition coach, certified as a Precision Nutrition Level 1 coach and has a passion for living a natural lifestyle. "I feel privileged to be a part of anyone's journey towards a healthier lifestyle, whether that be in the kitchen or in the gym or both!"
