Doctor of Physical Therapy, small business owner, apparel designer, strongwoman & powerlifting competitor. Marcia Darbouze has worn more hats in the last 10 years than most but none has pivoted her life more than the hat she never wanted, Auto Immune Disease.
Marcia takes me through her difficult times realizing when her body was not feeling or acting the way it should. How that path towards discovering her illness is still filled with many questions, and little answers.
Though the painful disease physically challengers her daily, it has not stopped her from pursuing what really fires her up, training strongwoman and powerlifting. Her lighthearted attitude and simple, yet inspiring approach towards trucking on reminds us that life is what you make of it, and it is up to us to make the best of it.
In this episode, Marcia and I laugh about people googling symptoms trying to self diagnose before coming to see her. Listen as we go over:
- Her brother and family fitness push
- How she got into training
- Living with an Autoimmune Disease
- Bracing as it relates to physical therapy
- Pull For Pride
- Quad Squad Shop
