About Jena

Dr. Jena Ko pursued her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Following this, she earned her clinical doctoral degree in physical therapy from New York University in her hometown of New York. She is a New York State Board Certified Physical Therapist and a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist in which she is currently personal training clients from various age groups.

To get a well rounded and rich clinical experience, she has and is currently working with amateur athletes who are Route Setters, Runners, Cyclists, and Boxers. Jena was a high school and college athlete. She ran outdoor track, indoor track, and cross country competitively. After college she took on kickboxing, boxing, yoga, and rock climbing as a means to stay active, challenge herself, and learn more about the capabilities of the human body. Jena has suffered from multiple sports related and overuse injuries which allows her to empathize and treat her clients more effectively. Jena believes that educating her clients and helping them increase their body awareness is the most important tool to a long lasting and effective therapy.

Jena has a great deal of experience in pediatrics working with ages 0+ with congenital, acquired, and orthopedic diagnosis. Working with toddlers and children gives Jena a unique experience as she constantly needs to think on her feet to figure out how to get children to exercise targeted muscles through motivational play.

Had many great sessions with Jena. She is a physical therapist who also trains. She addressed my issues more medically than a traditional trainer which worked for me since I already come from a fitness background.
