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. All human movement is a combination of various functions. Human movement cannot take place without muscular function. Performing specific exercises that eliminate weaknesses and mimic an individual's activity or specific skill can help the individual reach his/her desired goals.
Five key factors that are very important to maximize an individual's performance are:
Before designing a personal program for an individual, our trainers begin by asking several questions.
The next step is the assessment. The free assessment allows the trainer to take an individual through a series of movement sequences to find out where the individual's weaknesses are and how the progression should begin. It is not only what we do but how we do it, that makes us different.
"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. "
