Clients receive high quality, affordable, one-on-one medically-based training. Students receive high quality, hands-on, cutting-edge experiential learning.
Adequate Time to Deliver High Quality Care
At FCAP clinics, face-to-face time with clients typically ranges from 1 to 1.5 hours and longer if necessary, allowing adequate time for both clients and clinicians. Clinicians are able to build rapport as they design and implement full-body workout regimens, analyze movement patterns, adapt exercises as needed, and deliver compassionate care. Clients benefit from patient-centric, holistic intervention that addresses their specific body and functional impairments.
Educating Future Healthcare Professionals
FCAP facilities are teaching clinics with physical therapists and strength and conditioning specialists on site overseeing the process. Unlike typical internships that are often unpaid or observational, FCAP internships are truly hands-on and instructive, giving students on a pre-health track the clinical experience necessary for graduate programs.
A Cost Effective Approach
FCAP student-interns are paid a fair hourly wage, which in collaboration with salaried medical professionals, results in an affordable, cost-effective mode for all clients, promoting long-term outcomes.
High-Quality 1-on-1 Care
FCAP employees are extensively trained to ensure the development of high-quality clinicians. The curriculum includes didactic, observational, and hands-on learning components. Student-interns consistently demonstrate high energy, adaptability, and a yearning to contribute positively to the field. This passion is reflected in the attention and compassion with which they treat clients.
Inclusive and Positive Culture
FCAP’s mission is to help all individuals reach their functional potential. Clients and clinicians alike contribute to the positive and motivational work culture. The open gym concept and emphasis on a collaborative environment provide a harmonious clinical atmosphere where clients and clinicians alike reap the benefits.

The Science that Informs our Intervention Process
- Our clinics utilize CKC Fitness Systems, an all-in-one, functional exercise frame.
- The CKC Fitness Systems enable all users to perform appropriately challenging functional exercises through the use of bands that serve both resistive and assistive purposes.
- Entire course (approved by the VA APTA, NSCA, and offered separately to students through the UVA Kinesiology Dept) reviews evolutionary mismatch theory. Humans evolved over the course of millions of years. Past adaptations, once necessary for our survival, may be maladapted to the current environment in which humans live. These mismatches can increase risk for injury. With an understanding of human evolutionary anatomy, we can preserve structure and treat injury effectively.
