Functional training has gained huge movement the past few years in the fitness industry. More and more people are using functional training and calling everything that they do as functional training.

"In 2005, I was recovering from my second shoulder reconstruction, and I began my work with Mike Danenberg. A combination of a carefully crafted workout, diet, and ART, my body responded very positively. As a former college placekicker with a bad back, knees, and fibromyalgia, I had relegated my athletics to biking and weight room maintenance. With Mike's program, I brought my body fat down to 5.5%, my strength exceeded my college personal bests. I caught the triathlon bug. With the coaching of Mike and Fred, I was able to train and complete my first Ironman in November 2010. I am grateful for the family at Performance Therapy and the results that changed my life."
