Hello and welcome to the XCELFIT. My name is Patrick Marsh and I launched this company in 1993 after ten years of working in the health and fitness industry for great clubs like the Downtown Athletic Club in Baltimore and Brick Bodies also in Baltimore where I served as the Training Director for several years and had the opportunity to work with thousands of hard working members and training clients including several incredibly talented professional athletes from the Baltimore Orioles.
I've also been coaching and playing USA Club volleyball for over 30 years - currently coaching for the Baltimore Elite volleyball club - and spent several years coaching at the College of Notre Dame as well as having the privilege of starting the JV and Varsity boys teams at St. Paul's School for Boys where I coached for four years before leaving to take over boys varsity team at Towson Catholic High. I also have run sports performance training programs for Baltimore Elite, a variety of sports club organizations - such as the Annapolis Boys and Girls Club of America - SPARQ training clinics for Nike, and I helped establish and run the boys and girls speed, strength and conditioning summer clinics for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Salisbury University for a number of years. Several of our young athletes have gone on to play Division I to III in a variety of sports ranging from basketball - Providence and Clemson, golf - Notre Dame University, soccer - University of Virginia, and baseball - Indiana University, just to name a few.
Along with my passion for working with athletes of all levels and sports I quickly developed strong relationships with several medical professionals in the Baltimore region. Bridging the gap from acute health care to self sufficiency - what many refer to as medical exercise or post rehab - is a critical need and will only become more important as our health care system evolves and people continue to lead longer and more active lifestyles. Look for some great comments from some of these health care professionals in our testimonials page.
