How do you get over 640k followers on Instagram as a PT?

For Dr. Jen Esquer (AKA @docjenfit), movement isn’t just about “exercise,” it’s a way of life.

Dr. Jen is a top-40 physical therapy influencer. She is ranked as one of the Best Fitness Trainers on IG by Shape Magazine and has been featured in Self Magazine, Men’s Fitness, and Muscle and Fitness.

Although you will find some pretty spectacular handstands and other physical feats on Dr. Jen’s feed, her approach to fitness goes far beyond outward performance.

Her practice is to respect all the ways the body communicates… including aches, pains and illness. By listening to all the messages that come from within, and working on the timeline her body dictates, she walks the talk on holistic fitness.

“How we do one thing is how we do anything… so if I’m going to be showing up for other people [through social media], how am I showing up for myself?” States Dr. Jen.

From childhood gymnastics, to learning calisthenics on Venice Beach during PT school, to blowing up Instagram® with her heartfelt and helpful posts, this conversation is not to be missed.
