We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. William Schopp PT, DPT and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. William, what is the most important factor behind your success?
There are finite and infinite games in business, and success is definitely an infinite one. This means the only way to win is to keep playing. Our “success” is completely dependent on our every day athletes bouncing back from injuries and getting back to performing at their highest levels. The most important factors behind the success of our brand (so far) are three things: Our unmatched client experience, amazing network of friends and colleagues in the South Bay fitness and golf communities, and most importantly, our extraordinary people we have as part of The Movement Schopp team. I’m a firm believer that people drive greatness under great leadership, but poor leadership can significantly limit greatness from a person. Being a strong leader for our team and the South Bay fitness and golf communities is, and will continue to be, the success of The Movement Schopp brand!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The Movement Schopp is a performance based physical therapy practice where we help every day athletes bounce back from injuries and get back to performing at their highest levels. Specifically, we work with fitness athletes in the CrossFit/HIIT/functional fitness world, golfers, and runners. Unfortunately, these “everyday athletes” often fall through the cracks in the current medical world with the main advice after injury being ice, rest, or even stop doing their sport all together. That’s just unacceptable in our eyes and why we created The Movement Schopp in the first place. We are a space for these every day athletes to come in and truly recover from an injury in a supportive community, and get back to training for life at 100%.

There isn’t a whole lot about starting a business that is easy. Especially in a growing industry that is still in its infancy stage. The way we over come this is through our amazing clients and our team who drive us, and the industry as a whole, to continue to grow.

I will always circle back to my team for what I am most proud of, and how we over come challenges, of which we have had many. They live out our mission daily and are the many lighthouses of our brand, continuing to shine their light and passion on the active South Bay communities.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We’d definitely start the day by heading somewhere local on the coast for a quick surf, grab a breakfast burrito at Phanny’s, head over for a workout at one of our favorite gyms (The Blueprint LA, CF Provoke, Unlimited Fitness, or Torrance Training Lab in the South Bay), lunch and a couple of beers at Vida in Redondo, a quick 9 holes of golf at Terranea, finished with some sushi for dinner at Japonica or Black Bamboo in PV!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Like I said in our answer about success, I’d most definitely like to give recognition to the amazing South Bay fitness and golf community that is continuing to grow and our amazing team at The Movement Schopp!
