My husband and I have been training twice a week with Hartmut for the past couple of years. I am in my seventies and my husband is in his eighties. These workouts have been making all the difference in our strength and stamina. This is especially true in my husband’s case who has had both knees and one shoulder replaced. His balance has greatly improved and he is walking so much better. Hartmut is extremely knowledgeable about his profession, his exercises are scientifically based, and we have great confidence in his ability to push us to our limit without injury. We would recommend Hartmut highly and feel fortunate to be working with such a qualified person in his field.

Our family is deeply indebted to Hartmut for the years he has trained our 90 year old father. Hartmut tailored a program that has helped Dad strengthen his core and legs so despite a fused ankle and serious knee issues, Dad has been able to climb up our spiral staircase and take long walks at Rengstorff Park. Dad also has dementia which has made following directions challenging. Hartmut’s patience, medical training, and skill dealing with seniors overcame these obstacles to give Dad a better and healthier life. We are very grateful for this gift.

I have been working with Mr. Hartmut Broring and Back In Form since 2016. He has been an outstanding physio therapy colleague, and I have referred multiple patients to him for the last 2.5 years. I have received nothing but positive feedback about him from my patients. He is always professional and has been an excellent resource for a variety of patients; he has especially been an effective trainer and therapist for my older (>65 year-old) patients.

Hartmut Broring and his staff at Back In Form have been working with my patients, featuring various orthopedic, metabolic, neurological and cognitive limitations, over the past 4 years. Hartmut's understanding of their various health conditions along with his extensive knowledge of physiotherapy make him a great fit for evaluating and working with special needs clients. His design of appropriate and customized therapeutic exercise programs helps my patients to both overcome acute conditions, and to manage chronic health problems. His goals always include to maximize quality of life and independence for all my patients regardless of their baseline limitations. I cannot recommend Hartmut and Back In Form highly enough.
