Rodrigo Gil Moreno de Mora, PT, DPT, MADoctor of Physical Therapy-President and Bilingual Therapist
I graduated with the charter class from Regis University in 1996 with a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy. In 2000 I completed a second Masters Degree in Psychology, which focused on the psychological aspects of injuries. And finally, in 2005, I obtained my Doctorate in Physical Therapy, with an emphasis in manual therapy.
I am originally from Spain and have lived in the United States for over 30 years. In 2002, I had the opportunity to start Diamond Peak Physical Therapy. At its inception, the clinic was modest, with one treatment table, an exercise ball, a treadmill that was possessed and would accelerate and stop by itself most of the time, an Ultrasound machine and a computer. Since, the clinic has grown to the beautiful, modern-industrial facility that we have now, with over 4000 Sq. Ft. of space. Like the clinic I have grown, and developed an advanced and personalized treatment approach to physical therapy. I believe in keeping my patients doing the activities that they love to do. We use the Pilates principals in the rehab process and to help people to stay healthy. In 2012, I completed the Polestar Pilates Rehabilitation training. Pilates has become an integral part of my personal training and my approach to the rehabilitation process.
I developed my manual skills by pursuing further education and getting my Doctorate in manual and manipulative Physical Therapy. I am one of the original therapists in Colorado to be trained in Dry Needling. That has been a core part of my practice for many years. I enjoy learning and am regularly taking continuing education on more manual therapy techniques like advance manipulations and Myofascial Release, as well as Pilates and movement re-education. Learning is a never-ending undertaking.
In my 50’s, I am still active in sports and participate in competitive cycling and running events in Colorado, nationally and worldwide. I am a firm believer that movement is the “Fountain of Youth” and the foundation of health. I like to be active and strive to maintain health and wellbeing, leading by example.
In the early 2000’s, I founded Diamond Peak Racing, to help other fellow cyclist and runners to enjoy the sport as much as I do. I often volunteer in local events to promote cycling for kids and cyclist of all ages. As part of my passion for cycling, Pro Bike was born. Pro Bike is a company that helps cyclist achieve the maximal performance and comfort out of their bikes. I approach the bike fits with a strong medical evidence based approach and extensive experience in human biomechanics. The integration of both knowledge and experience, results in a comprehensive and personalized bike fit.
In 2016, I became a Runity trainer. Runity is a logical and systematic program that teaches runners to run, minimizing unwanted loads that result in injuries. This program allows injured runner, beginner runner and experience runner to improve on their technique and minimize pain.
Now that you know a little about me, if I haven’t already met you, I hope to meet you and get to know you.

Misty Woodden, PTA, CKTPLicensed Physical Therapist Assistant, Pilates Instructor
I am a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), Certified PMA Pilates Instructor, head Pilates instructor at DPPT, and Educator for Polestar Pilates, a pilates instructor training program. In 2004, I graduated and moved to Loveland and began working at Diamond Peak. I am a Colorado native from the western slope.
Since graduation I have taken numerous continuing education courses including John Barnes myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, manual therapy for the spine, pelvis, knee, shoulder and neck, and am a certified kinesiotaping. I have extensive continuing education in pilates and movement re-education. I began my Pilates training in 2008 with Polestar Pilates. I chose the Polestar, as it is taught by Physical Therapists and draws on the sciences of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and motor control. I quickly discovered that Physical Therapy and Pilates truly compliment one another and have been merging the philosophy and teachings of both to improve function and well being of my patients. I have worked with Polestar as a Mentor since 2011 and became an Educator in 2017.

I came to Pilates a few years back, looking for help with my hip, knee and lower back and it changed my life. This inspired me to study Pilates.
