Since the age of fourteen, Mike Danenberg has worked in the fitness industry. Straight out of high school, Mike enlisted in the Marine Corps. He eventually got hurt and decided it was best to go back to school. Mike now holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and Sports Medicine. During his college years, he worked as a medic, Dive Rescue Specialist and extrication technician with Charleston County Rescue. Afterwards, Mike worked with the Citadel's Army rangers designing their strength and conditioning regimes. He then became the fitness director of a wellness center in Charleston, SC, designing rehab programs for athletes as well as developing his Efficient Run Technique, which he still teaches today.

He was recruited to be the fitness director at King's Sports Complex and moved to Charlotte in 1995. He taught Neuromuscular Therapy, Anatomy and Physiology, and Palpatory Anatomy at the South Eastern School for Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy.
Soon after, Mike received his credentials in Active Release Techniques (ART) from Dr, P. Michael Lehy.

In 1997, Mike opened his first practice in Lake Norman, NC and developed Performance Therapy. He then became the ART therapist for the Carolina Panthers from 1999 through the 2001 season.

Mike opened Performance Therapy’s South Charlotte office in 2007, which allowed him to utilize the entire vision he had by adding the rehab/prehab component. Mike and the team at Performance Therapy offer clinics to help runners from new to elite, perform better resulting in faster, more efficient running gaits.
He added an additional ART therapist and two strength coaches. In 2011, Mike partnered with Brad McKay to open Performance Therapy in Greenville, SC.

With over 20 years of experience, Mike continues to treat professional, collegiate, junior and high school athletes from all types of sports. He frequently works with college and high school cross country teams helping the athletes with their running gaits, biomechanics, and injuries. Mike's unique approach with Performance Therapy does not limit him to athletes. Everyone can benefit from his unique style of therapy.
