Attending the KIME Bulletproof Summit was as much of a game changing experience as any continuing education I’ve had throughout my career.


The innovative and scientifically based process that goes into programming and planning is unparalleled in today’s traditional physical therapy models.


In a culture of quick and generic treatments, the KIME philosophy stands apart as a means to not only regain basic function but to restore the client to the level that allows them to soar again.

Monty Merrill Physical Therapist

I have been a fitness trainer for over 20 years… Continuing education is a vital part to what keeps my mind fresh and my clients continuing to progress. What I look for is information that is progressive, scientific, and scalable.


I recently attended the Bulletproof Summit put on by KIME Performance Physical Therapy. Our facility brought 7 trainers down to participate. This event was awesome. It was a perfect blend of scientific explanation, hands on application, competition, and fun.


By the end of the weekend, we were all fired up over the information and couldn’t wait to plug it right into our programming. I have attended a lot of different programs. This program was by far one of the most inclusive, applicable, and enjoyable that I have been to. If you have a chance to attend a KIME event, I highly recommend it!
