After hosting 24 CPC BNG events, we were a little nervous bringing in a “body” speaker to address our business folks, as most of our speakers have focused on “head and/or heart” topics in the past. Well, Dr.Natalie addressed the whole brain and body and hit it out of the park. She reminded us we cannot serve our God-given missions if we have a weak, unhealthy body. And so much disease comes from what we put in our mouths and lifestyle habits. As we know, obesity, diabetes, ADHD, depression and other diseases are an epidemic in the USA — way too many of us are not living as healthy as we should — and CPC is not immune to this enormous problem. Not new information, but her engaging delivery, and the combination of humanity in her delivery and great depth of expertise made her overview compelling and inspiring. She caused me to reflect on what I eat and gave great ideas for things I must do differently to become my best. It was one of the best programs we’ve ever had, due to Dr. Natalie, and the 45 minutes flew by. And she is a Christian whose faith plays an integral role in her life. She included a few of her favorite passages in her talk and was very well received by our attendees.
I won a Wellness Lunch for my office through a drawing at my fitness studio. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but working with Kay Grobel and Dr. Natalie to set up the event was a breeze. Dr. Natalie’s presentation on nutrition was truly eye-opening to me and all of my co-workers that attended. She presented the information in a clear way and really made everyone in the audience feel at ease. Nutrition is complicated and difficult to understand but Dr. Natalie made it seem not so overwhelming. I would recommend this presentation to anyone who struggles with their diet or anyone who just wants to learn more about the foods they are putting in their body.
You all rock! I just want to say that you all are the buzz this afternoon around my office. I have had so many questions I have answered or tried my best to so THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
I would like to share my personal story on what Dr. Jim and Finish Line Chiropractic have done for my health. I have suffered from sinus infections for years and I have been on antibiotics 4-6 times a year for at least 10 years. It was recommended that I go through surgery to help open up my sinuses. I was miserable. My good friend Kay Grobel recommended that I come and see Dr. Jim at Finish Line Chiropractic. On my first visit I explained my concern about my sinus issues, and he shared with me that if I got off of dairy, he would guarantee that I would feel better. I did just that and was amazed how much better I felt. I thought if that worked, I would listen to whatever else he told me to do. I decided to have an alcat test to help me find out the right food to be feeding my body. That again was a total shocker. I had no idea on the foods that I was allergic to. This brought me to finally doing the detox. I wanted to rid my body of all of the toxins that were causing me to be tired, foggy minded, bloated and just not feeling 100%. I did the 21 day detox and it was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I was tired at first and had minor symptoms, but it was totally worth going through to feel like I do today. I wake up with a ton of energy, my workouts are much more energetic, my stress level is much lower, my mind is clear. I love the way that I feel today. I feel blessed that I found a doctor that truly cares about his patients health through feeding the body with the right nutrients. Thank you Dr. Jim and Finish Line Chiropractic for giving me a new way of living!
I have spent 3 years on the US Ski Team, I am a Junior National Champion and a 3x World Juniors Member. I have essentially put my body through a blender. From all the crashes and hospital visits I never knew if my back and body would ever look, function, or feel normal again. That is until I was referred to DR. James Midboe at Finish Line Chiropractic. I now move better, feel better and am able to live a happier, healthier, pain free life. Make the time to go see Finish Line Chiropractic and take care of yourself, no matter who you are or what you do you, your body will thank you
Kay was very helpful with setting up the event. I had many options on the topic and they were very flexible with the date and time.
I just want to say a big THANK YOU for your help last night.
You did a great job and you made my job easier. I appreciate you.
I had 3-4 people comment how cheerful you were and how competent you were.
Actually, I think you’re ‘doctor material’. Have you ever thought of going back to school?
Anyway…..thanks again. I loved having you there last night.
Success, Health, and Happiness,
Whenever I work with Kay on a project I always find her to be very organized and efficient and always with a smile. She is a self-motivator and has great follow through when working on any project. Her commitment and dedication are on the top of the scale.
Kay was very helpful with setting up the event. I had many options on the topic and they were very flexible with the date and time. Jeff came and did his presentation which was very well planned out and I received a lot of very positive feedback. They brought sandwich wraps, healthy snacks, and water for everyone. I had to leave a few minutes before the end of the presentation, but I was told that people really liked it. The one thing was at the end, I believe just his last few slides promoted his business. I don’t think he presented it in a very sales pitch type way, just more informational. I’ve had 5 or 6 employees go visit him in his office since then and I know they’ve had good experiences.
I was concerned that it would be very much a sales pitch, and it really wasn’t. The presentation was very good and we all appreciated the information. We invited them back for another talk in April.
I love working with Kay and Dr. Jim at Finish Line because the services we provide really compliment each other well. They have also been a great business partner. Dr. Jim spoke at my LearningRx center in Savage and it was extremely helpful to the attendees — I’m in the process of scheduling him to speak at our center again! We have also opened our center up to Finish Line to do massages while our customer wait. Our customers love it and the Finish Line team is very friendly and professional.
Thank you so much Dr. Ashley and Kay for coming to Heart of the City Dental for a lunch and learn. We all benefited from the talk on ergonomics, enjoyed the massage and lunch and found the posture check to be enlightening.
Special Olympics Minnesota invited Dr. James to our workplace to provide a professional development seminar. Healthy living and wellness is a very important focus for our athletes and staff so we appreciate receiving innovative information from experts. Dr. James was very engaging and knew his topic well. His presentation created a lot of conversation amongst our staff afterwards. Many commented that it was the best professional development training we have offered. Thanks Dr. James!
A few months ago I met Kay on the golf course. Who knew spinning a wheel would change my lifestyle. After winning a complementary Workplace Wellness visit for our company it gave me a new way of thinking about seeing a chiropractor. I have to admit; at first I was in it for the free lunch, but when Kay, Dr. James, and Dr. Ashley visited us it was far more than just a lunch.
Everyone at our office enjoyed learning more about healthy choices that we should be making and knowing some of the common pitfalls. James was very easy to listen to and was a wealth of information. He answered all of our questions we had, even though we could not answer half of his.
After their visit, I took it into my own hands to have an assessment. This was basically just X-rays. I was interested in this since I have had back issues for many years. It turned out that I had some spinal and neck issues that was the associated with this discomfort. After discussing my X-rays with Dr. James Midboe, he immediately put together a game plan. I was a bit reluctant due to the time required to complete his plan but decided to commit to it anyways. I am glad that I did.
O yeah, did I mention that you can sit in massage chairs while waiting for your appointment?
To Kay, Ashley, and Lori,
Prior Lake State Bank would like to thank Finish Line Chiropractic for coming into our bank and providing free massages to our staff! Lori and Ashley did a wonderful job in providing a relaxing break from the daily routine. We would welcome them back as soon as possible. Thank you very much!
As the Marketing Director at Finish Line Wellness, Kay has presented phenomenal qualities needed to produce quality results in this competitive field of wellness and at the highest level of performance required by our company. I have come to know Kay as a great individual performer and a stellar leader. Her unconventional way of thinking contributes to solving practical issues with efficiency. She is creative! I have been blown away again and again by not only her ability to consistently produce and maintain high performance and quality work, but by her endless supply of energy, determination and continued positive attitude. I feel the amazing personal qualities that Kay exudes are what brings that unique and necessary aspect to any self driven profession and is what ultimately drives success. Personality cannot be trained, but if it could be, we would all benefit from sitting in on a class from Kay. Kay is one of those rare individuals where performance, quality work, continued positive attitude and consistent personality are all equally outstanding. She is someone I always enjoy being around and someone I will always be proud to work with.
I have been working with Kay Grobel for about two years. In that time, I’ve witnessed Kay adapt into the best chiropractic and wellness marketing director I have even seen. My practice has shown remarkable growth that has been sustainable and continual since day one. She has an incredible personality that makes her approachable and fun to work with. She is a great representation of what true wellness is all about. I would recommend anyone in need of chiropractic or wellness marketing go to Kay Grobel!
Kay Grobel joined Finish Line Chiropractic almost two years ago. Her passion for health and wellness and unique way of connecting with each and every person she crosses brought immediate leadership, passion and growth to Finish Line Chiropractic. She is very dedicated to the people she works for and I am confident she will deliver the same results for every office that she works with. I am proud to be a partner in her mission to help other chiropractors achieve the amazing feats she accomplished at Finish Line. If you want growth, you will get it…..and you will get it fast!
The success we have at Finish Line Chiropractic would not be possible without the marketing system we have in place. Our marketing development coordinator, Kay Grobel, is what holds it all together. She is great at contacting people and building relationships, which has then turned into great opportunities for us to get in front of various businesses and groups. She is great at organizing events and helping make sure they go smoothly. We also utilize various marketing tools and programs, which have made it easy to educate the community about what we do and how we can help them and others they know! I have worked at various clinics in the past, and none of them even come close to providing the marketing opportunities and tools needed to develop the success I have had at Finish Line!

Finish Line Chiropractic is a great place to get or stay healthy. With a lifestyle most of us lead we tend to forget about one, self. I am one of those and from the first time I met Kay Grobel at a 5K event and recieved my Wellness Pass the smiling faces of the doctors and everyone that works here is “home” to say the least. My first visit they asked questions about my body, took xrays and did a full body evaluation. After a few days they brought me back and explained where and why I was having problem areas, explained why it was happening from my xrays and then set me up with a treatment and also check with my insurance. That is customer relations at it’s best!
The people welcome you as you walk in, I get to sit in a message chair before my appointment, get adjusted then lie on a roller bed after. I have never had this treatment. Needless to say they know you by name and if they is anything they can help with they will do their best. I love going and feeling my best for the start of 2013 and I know it will continue being treated at Finish Line Chiropractic. Thanks Kay and Dr. Ashley!
Thank you for partnering with us. On a personal note I do not know what I would do without the care I have received there. It really has transformed my life, and as Dr James says “The best is yet to come”
We are very blessed that you have been able to come along side and partner with us for these events. While our team is going to impact lives of some folks in great need, I know that your partnership of support has meant a great deal to all of us. The health and welfare for us of us should be a important part of our lives. Thank you again for all your support.. Blessings!
Kay, everyone in the office enjoyed their presentation and visit.. I was skeptical but it was great… thank you so much .. have I changed my eating habits … well – working on it more now..
Finish Line’s team is simply fantastic. Their presentation was informative, humorous and delightful.
The shakes they provided were absolutely delicious. We have had many other speakers in our office, but Finish Line was something special. Our employees were engaged like I have never seen them before! I would highly recommend your next wellness presentation to be by Finish Line. They are a highly professional and intelligent group of people!

We invited Kay Grobel and Trillium Chiropractic to do a “lunch and learn” at a recent business meeting. Many members of our group commented on how interesting and informative the presenter was. A lot of people stayed after the Q & A session to ask more questions and set up personal meetings with the Trillium staff. All that information and free lunch, too!
We are always interested in offering activities and programs that improve wellness and overall wellbeing for our employees, so when Kay contact me about the what Finishline Wellness has to offer we were very interested! We had a very positive response to the chair massages and nutrition lunch and learn. I think that everyone involved benefited from it! Thanks!
I found the session to be rather informative in regards to items found in foods and what to try to avoid. And which types of foods are better for our bodies. I am really looking forward to making some of the foods from the recipes that were given us – 10 items needed.
I really like the Dr. Gianforte and the Minnetonka facility. Very nice people and I can’t wait to hear what she has to say and how she can improve my lifestyle.
I was surprised by how much sugar is in our processed food and beverages. I will be reading more food labels looking for sugars and bad fat and chemicals.
What I live for is my life is my family. My wife is a strong believer of “real foods”, eating healthy and exercising. I thought I already had a head start regarding healthy living before meeting Dr. Gianforte. I was correct, but she explained to me that wise old tail about eating right and exercising just wasn’t enough. Sleep, posture and how your internal body works, all have to be in sync for optimum results. I learned quite a few fun facts about my daily routine and how I can change them to be healthier. I plan to make these changes within my family.
In the fall of 2012, Dr. James came to my company for a lecture about food, wellness and toxicity. AsianCircle, an employee resource group, brought him in to educate us in the fall 2012. They were so impressed with the talk and feedback from the employees that they invited him back for a follow-up lecture in May of 2013 during the annual Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM). During the month of May, AsianCircle invites different doctors & professionals to talk about different topics on health disparities that impacts the Asian communities, but can also relate to other ethnicity. What has always impressed me the most with Dr. James has been his passion for health & wellness in all. I’ve heard from many co-workers who attended his lecture that his passion for health & wellness is very evident based on his presentation which is one of the main reason they decided to go see him. It makes it easier to see and talk to a professional who has the kind of passion for their job like Dr. James.
