#2: Drs Ronda and Sean Rockett; Crossfit meets Medicine

The Rockett’s are two medical doctors with a difference, based in Boston, US. Sean is an orthopaedic surgeon and has been Head Dr of the Ortho team at the Crossfit Games since 2012. Ronda was a practicing family physician, or GP, for 12 years, before she decided to leave medicine and become a full-time Crossfit coach.

Both Ronda and Sean were kind enough to speak with me about their work in medicine, Crossfit, the overlaps and stories between these two areas, and why Ronda eventually decided that she was better able to help people, and follow her passion, by leaving medicine to coach Crossfit full-time.
