"Ten years ago, I began at Performance Therapy a former Division I college tennis player with residual injuries causing neck, shoulder and foot problems. Fast forward to now, and you have an entirely different person. I am migraine-free. I am injury-free. In 2011 alone, I have completed three marathons, a 50-miler, two 100-milers, a 100k, five Ironman events (three in three consecutive weeks), three 70.3s, and an Ultraman (6.2-mile swim, 262-mile bike, 52.4-mile run) plus qualified for the Ironman World Championships in Kona-all on a foot with a screw in it. Honestly, I owe all of it to Performance Therapy. It is nothing short of incredible that I have been able to undertake this sort of schedule with no glitches, no injuries whatsoever. Fred Ossmann has kept me strong and flexible (for me!), and Mike puts "Humpty Dumpty" back together again after all of the training and racing. Office Manager Katie has a full-time job keeping up with my crazy schedule and following up with my travel to races. They are part of my family."
