Most, if not all of you, know Katja Jensen. You’ve seen her in almost every competition as one of the Flying Fossils, and no doubt you’ve seen her in the gym working on her Bar Muscle Ups or throwing around the barbell like it’s a PVC pipe! No Doubt, while watching this happen you’ve probably thought to yourself “Holy Crap! I hope I’m that athletic when I’m a Masters athlete as well!”
What you probably don’t know about Katja is that she is an extremely knowledgeable Physiotherapist who has been actively in the industry since she graduated in 1995 from Basel, Switzerland. The following 16 years that she remained in Switzerland saw Katja undertaking Post-Grad Courses, specializing in the field of Sports Injury and Orthopaedic Rehabilitation, while working in Private Practice and hospitals. She has been the Physiotherapist for local and representative Soccer and Handball teams as well as travelling with athletes to the Berlin Marathon.
August 2011 saw Katja move to Cairns with her husband Stew. Two months later in October she started training at Crossfit Dungeon, and has been a member ever since. She understands the philosophy, terminology and lifestyle requirements of CrossFit and can sympathise with the frustration experienced when injuries hold you back from giving your all (having been through the same herself).
2017 will see Katja in full swing with her own clinic “Cross-Fix Physio” run from right here in The Dungeon! The next time you walk upstairs to stretch and mobilise, take a look to your left at the Red Room and expect big exciting things to come from there very very soon. Everything is progressing and Katja is eagerly sorting out the requirements to kick off next year with a bang (if you’re lucky she may take a few part-time booking for the remaining of the year).
What this means to her, and essentially means for you; is that not only will you have access to an extremely knowledgeable Physio, in-house, on-hand, at your very own gym. But you have the expertise of a Physio that walks the walk, talks the talk and knows that training is life. She will work with you, to keep you on the floor training, and do her best to get you back out there firing at 100%.
