"As an athlete, I am always looking for an advantage. It is easy to think more is better, but at some point, you push your body past its limit. Thankfully when I was injured someone referred me to Mike Danenberg and Performance Therapy. Working with Mike I have learned to train smarter not harder, run more efficiently, and come back quicker when things do occasionally go awry. Mike has always treated me like I am his most important client. He understands how to manage my desire to train and tendency to overtrain. I trust his advice completely. I have taken an hour and fifteen minutes off my marathon time, run sub 16:00 for 5k and finished an Ironman in under 10 hours. I have surprised myself, but Mike never seems surprised. Helping people get more out of themselves than they think possible is what he does. If you truly want to maximize your performance I strongly recommend Mike Danenberg and the talented team at Performance Therapy. "
