Following your calling and defining your “why” are the building blocks of a successful and fulfilling life. It’s something you hear us champion  frequently on Barbell Business, Barbell Shrugged and Barbell Buddha. But what do you do when your calling and your “why” don’t exactly match up?

Dr. Theresa Larson, founder of Movement Rx, has the answer to this question. Frustrated with a traditional clinic setting, she didn’t want to deal with the BS of the regular physical therapy world – treating 20 patients a day in the insurance business which felt broken and very restricting.  After confiding in Kelly Starrett, the idea of breaking free from the regular constraints of the physical therapy world seemed much more doable.

In this week’s episode, you’ll hear more about how Dr. Larson fought through a debilitating eating disorder, the passing of her mother, leading an entire Marine platoon while deployed in Iraq, and embraced her calling to heal and nurture to craft her own successful career in the fitness industry.
