Niki Lherisse, Owner / Director of Adult Personal Training / Performance Coach

Niki's athletic career started in her back yard as a child and almost ended there.  She never played high school or college sports, as a matter of fact when she and her husband many opened their Parisi franchise, she didn't think she "belonged" because she wasn't an athlete.  She considered Manny and their other coaches as athletes.  The Parisi Team knew athletic success and what it took to get there.

On the other hand, Niki's doctor's office had already checked that box on her chart that said "obese".  But in 2014, at the age of 32 Niki decided to reverse it all and get her life back!  It was time to dig up the potential she had buried for almost a lifetime!  Niki began doing the Parisi XPC adult training program.  Since then she has lost over 60 lbs, gained muscle and found an athlete she didn't know lived inside of her.  Niki has a wall covered in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place 5k medals, children who KNOW when she says anything is possible it's TRUTH.  Niki took it even further when she became a Certified Parisi Coach herself and she has inspired many to begin this very same journey of their own!

When Coach Niki says, "I know it's hard but you can do it!" It's because she has been there.  When Coach Niki says, "I believe in you!".  It is 100% truth because she knows what it means to be an overcomer.  Coach Niki has become a vital member of the Parisi XPC team with her goals of pushing you to your full potential and undying belief that anything is possible if you work for it!

Accomplishments:  Mother of 3 awesome children.  Has lost over 60 lbs in past 2 years and has inspired many to start on the path to a healthy and active lifestyle. She has several 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishes in over 30 5k and 10k runs in last 2 years.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing  small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's  not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own  fear, our presence automatically liberates others. - Marianne Williamson
