In 2018 PPI’s founder Michael Littrell had just finished a grueling 100 endurance run, Grindstone 100. In the days that followed Mike was on the search for a place he could get access to top of the line recovery services to help him get back to his training and his life. Unfortunately, his search ended unsuccessfully and thus the idea for Pittsburgh Performance Institute was born. A one-stop-shop for recovery and performance.
