Bob Cook MHS, PT
Bob has been dedicated to the study and practice of kinesiology, exercise physiology, biomechanics and nutrition since he was young. After a tour in the US Navy where he was a submariner, diver and rescue swimmer, he pursued a formal education in exercise physiology and eventually physical therapy. His first job in physical therapy disillusioned him with the modern medical industry. He began using his extensive knowledge and experience integrating “functional movements” and teaching people how to use their bodies long before it was considered mainstream. This led him to pioneer the first CrossFit gym in Vancouver, Washington and to become a competitive CrossFit athlete, coach and gym owner. Bob currently competes in obstacle course racing. His dedication to functional movement, medicine and nutrition has remained strong and he has now partnered with his wife, Sherilyn, who is an Osteopathic Physician and Functional Medicine specialist.
