Dr. Sean Rockett is an orthopedic surgeon with 20 years of experience in sports medicine. His wife, Dr. Ronda Rockett, worked as a family pracitioner for 12 years.

Today, the couple operate CrossFit Launchpad in Wellesley, Massachusetts, where they are preventing and curing chronic disease.

“I get to help people prevent disease … through exercise, diet, sleep, stress management, positive attitude,” Ronda says.

Owning an affiliate, she adds, allows her to spend several hours a week helping individuals change their lives—well beyond the limited time a doctor can usually spend with a patient in the office.

“I’m still doing family medicine, but it’s much more preventive,” she says. “And of course, I no longer prescribe medication. I still get to help people be the best that they can be.”
