Adding a Gym to an Existing Medical Facility with Curt and Krista Kippenberger

Curt and Krista Kippenberger join us in today’s episode to discuss their progression with the clinic gym hybrid model in their clinic, Focus on Health Chiropractic. Their current facility is 3500 square feet and houses four doctors and an intern. The gym takes up 680 square feet and can comfortably host small classes.

I can honestly say when we implemented the gym and said, ‘this is a part of your treatment plan’, there’s a sparkle in peoples’ eyes. They’re like ‘woah… I came in telling you that I can’t even lift my kid up, and you’re telling me that your goal for me is to lift a 100lb kettlebell off the floor!’” – Dr. Curt Kippenberger
