Today we are joined by Kirk Mason. He joined the clinic gym program in September 2018 and has had some massive changes since then, with even more happening in the coming weeks. When he was looking for spaces to start his own clinic after graduating in 2016, he was introduced to someone else looking for a chiropractic space. The two became business partners, and Kirk takes us through the evolution of their operation from back then to today.
“We want the gym to be rocking, we want it to be busy, but we also don’t want to get so busy that we forget about how important it is to be good.” -Kirk Mason
