About Annemarie Alf
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.
Certifications/ Continuing Education:
Brittany Peterson, ATC, Pn1
Brittany is a board certified Athletic Trainer, Nutrition Coach, and Manager at Olympus. She graduated from SDSU in 2013 with a bachelors in Kinesiology emphasis in Athletic Training. After graduating she worked with physical therapists as a physical therapist aide. From there she delved more into the nutrition world and began helping people with their lifestyle’s by educating them on the importance of a good diet and adequate exercise. Brittany has coached CrossFit and currently coaches the Adult, Teen and some of the Sport Performance Classes at Olympus.
Brittany realized early on during her Athletic Training schooling that she wanted to be more involved in the rehabilitation and injury prevention with athletes. She also knew that not only high school and collegiate athletes needed this care, but adults and the older population would benefit as well. At fifteen, Brittany was sent to physical therapy for an injury and it was there that she realized there was a gap from going from physical therapy back into sport or hobbies. Brittany wanted to bridge that gap and help people build their confidence as they progress back to the activities that they love.
Brittany is passionate about working with all athletic levels. From teens wanting to supplement their sport, to parents who are trying to balance their schedules to fit everything in, to the grandparents who want to stay active and spry not only for their health, but for their families. Brittany believes that regardless of where you are in life or your limitations, exercising and moving can be done in a healthy way. She also believes that good nutrition creates health in all areas of ones life, and being educated in the importance of our food choices plays a vital role in overall wellness.
