Checking in With Curt Kippenberger and His Successful Clinic Gym

We’re joined by Curt Kippenberger this week. Curt’s clinic, Focus on Health in Columbia, MO, successfully follows the clinic gym hybrid model. The practice has been open for 11 years. Today, Curt catches the audience up on how his practice is doing.

Our gym is kind of unique – it’s very visible. We have these big, gigantic windows… it blends into our reception area, our waiting area. So, you can’t miss what’s going on in the gym. And I did that purposefully. I wanted people to say ‘hey, what the hell is going on over there?’” – Curt Kippenberger
