Xcel Performance Center (XPC) in Melbourne was built on a dream to create a one of a kind facility in Brevard County to empower people of all ages and abilities to be the best they can be. A place where the whole family can make connections be educated and inspired to improve their self-confidence and quality of life. We are in the business of Forming Fit Families.
The Parisi Speed School is the foundation of our business and has fueled our mission to empower America’s youth, so that when they are adults leading our country, they can do so with the strength of character that will lead to their success in life.
Xcel Performance Center (XPC) was started by in 2010 by Manny and Niki Lherisse when they moved back to Melbourne from Boston, Massachusetts. Manny graduated from Melbourne Central Catholic in 1994 where he played basketball and football. He went on to play college basketball at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. Upon returning to Melbourne Manny realized there was not any quality sports performance training facilities in the area and he wanted to do something about that. He knew that Parisi was the industry leader in youth fitness & performance training and only wanted to align himself with the best.
In March 2010, the first Parisi Speed School franchise in the state of Florida was opened in Melbourne. We have grown from subleasing 1,000 sq ft in a baseball training facility with 1 client to our current facility of over 8,500 sq ft and over 150 clients. We have expanded our services and not only do we work with kids, but we now offer personal training services for adults as well. Our team travels around Brevard and surrounding counties conducting team camps and clinics, corporate wellness programs, free demos at several local schools, and businesses as well as presenting at conferences for Health and Physical Education providers.
Our adult training program is second to none, and we train and treat all of our clients like world class athletes. We know there is an athlete in everyone… that inner person who wants to lose weight, play with the kids, walk on the beach or just simply enjoy a healthy and active life. Helping you find that inner athlete is what we do at XPC.
We invite you to be part of the exciting energy at Xcel Performance Center. Our staff is committed to our mission and dedicated to serving you and your family in reaching your goals.
