"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."
