Tim Poppe originally hails from Houston Texas, as do so many of our residents and visitors. After a move to Denver further shaped his love of outdoor sports, Tim was able to relocate to Crested Butte. Tim is a physical therapist, so on the one hand you hope you’ll never meet him. If you do need physical therapy, however, you’ll probably get to know him well, and thankfully he’s a pretty good guy.
We discuss his own [long!] laundry list of personal injuries, and his favorite activities in Crested Butte, which has grown to include sports that are new to him, like flyfishing. In a town that is full of talented athletes, Tim talks about the challenges of getting motivated athletes to actually take a little time off so they can heal. Tim can also look at your body movement and work on preventing injuries. Not only that, he can also help with bike fit- an often overlooked component that sometimes only becomes an issue when you put in big miles, as it did for me many years ago.
