Hi, I'm David Potucek. I am 25 years old and currently reside in southwest Connecticut. I am a licensed physical therapist with my own practice Accelerated Performance Training located in Shelton, Connecticut. I have been practicing for over 2 years and continuously advance my manual and orthopedic skills as well as expand my sports medicine knowledge base. I see a high level of sports injuries and deal with high school, collegiate level and professional athletes for sport specific training and rehabilitation. I also am a fitness specialist, massage therapist, and wellness instructor.
I was a gymnast for 15 years competitively as well as a team member of the Springfield College men's gymnastics team where I earned my masters degree in physical therapy. I plan on pursuing my doctorate in physical therapy next year. I competed in Division 1 Nationals on rings and vault two years in a row as an individual as well as placed in many events at Division 2/3 Nationals.
Modeling has always been something that people have told me to do my whole life, so I finally took them up on the offer. I have competed in Model America competitions and have placed 2nd in NYC, 3rd in Tampa, as well as 5th in East Haven, CT in 2005/2006. I currently train to stay in shape and maintain my confidence levels as well as keep opportunity open for print work.
I have recently taken up Muay Thai fighting which I find to be one incredible workout. My skill and body awareness have increased drastically even for being a past gymnast. Core strengthening and functional training are a big part of how I train myself as well as others and muay thai uses all elements in one complete workout. I current co-train a unique self-defense cardiovascular workout with Curtis Jackson of Curtis Jackson Fitness Studios.
Working with John Mitchell was a lot of fun. He made me very comfortable and was extremely professional and courteous. He was able to give me advice in areas of my body that need to be more symmetrical and proportional. He also taught me variations of poses that looked great in the end results. I had the opportunity to work with just him alone as well as with other models, all of which were great experiences. He is very adept with a camera and takes great pictures utilizing lighting and angles to get the right shot. He has great style in shooting and is open to new ideas. I would recommend John to anyone wishing to get great fitness/fashion photographs by a very professional photographer.
