Steve Sudell jr

Hey, I’m Steve. I have a beautiful wife, Lindsay, two great dogs, and live in sunny Venice, CA. I’ve been a Crossfit competitor since 2012 and I specialize in working with high intensity athletes on their mobility, prehab, and post-injury physical therapy. When we focus on getting people do move better, I have seen some incredible things. I created Prehab 2 Perform as a free resource and tool geared towards some of the things I am most passionate about: helping people return to what they love without pain, and more fit than ever before!

Krzysztof Pakula

Hi, my name is Krzysztof (pronounced like Kris-tof). I was born in Warsaw, Poland, and immigrated to the United States at the age of five. Growing up in Chicago, I found myself driven by two major passions - personal wellness and helping others. Once I discovered that I could fulfill both of these passions as a physical therapist, I studied to earn my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Northwestern University in 2017. While in grad school, I started doing CrossFit and fell in love with how it tapped into my athletic potential. With plenty of first-hand experience on overcoming obstacles at the gym, I now feel it is my calling to help individuals of all shapes, sizes, and ability levels live pain-free and reach their personal mobility goals.
