We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Ben Barrantes and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Ben, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
“You have to dream, before those dreams can become a reality.” This quote has resonated with me over the years, and is great advice for anyone looking to get started on a new business venture. In the beginning you may feel like your goal is far away, and completely unrealistic. But taking that first step, no matter how small, paves the way for you to continue the pursuit in the overall process. It is surprising how fast things change in just a matter of a couple years, taking small steps towards that goal each and every day adds up. If you can find something that keeps you motivated, and stay passionate about that thing in the long term, you are inevitably going to achieve what you set out to accomplish.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My company Movement Redefined is on a mission to redefine the standards of preventative healthcare. We are changing the traditional approach to physical therapy by implementing a 1 on 1 model of patient care. Patients who engage with our clinicians learn how to decrease their pain through the integration of rehab, fitness, and wellness in their everyday routine. My background prior to becoming a physical therapist was in the fitness industry for over a decade. Because of this experience, I learned many valuable lessons including the importance of building long term relationships. The investment we make in our patients success and long term outcomes ultimately is what separates our services from other models of care.

Was starting my business easy? Absolutely not, in fact it took time to grow. I started my business as a mobile personal training company while in graduate school, servicing the greater Scottsdale area with the little extra time I had available on Sundays. I always had the vision of transitioning it into a physical therapy private practice and expanding upon the services that we offered. Being able to slowly grow the brand, build relationships, and create content on social media over that period of time helped tremendously once we made that final transition into private practice. The greatest lesson learned, is that failure is part of the process!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My fiancé, Lauren Robberts! Taking the risk on of starting my own business may not have been possible without all of her support.
