Kid Athletes In The Making

OK, we get it, we’re Texans and sports are a big deal. The Cowboys, the Mavericks, just about any sport and local team we go nuts for. And then there is that weekend soccer game watching your kid out on the field. That’s more special than all the others.

These days training and conditioning start younger and younger. Parents realize their kids need an edge if they are going to play at the varsity level and on select teams.


Last year Mike and Deora Pell recognized that need and opened Infinite Performance in McKinney. Mike is an IT specialist and Deora does medical billing. The physical training business was all new to them, although Mike has been a youth sports coach for about 15 years.

“What I see lacking in kids today is basic athleticism,” Mike says. Infinite offers training for kids as young as 6, up to 18. They and their trainers focus on strength, power, balance, flexibility, speed, agility and quickness. It works for any sport, whatever the kid’s interest may be.

“We care as much about the kids from the neck up as the neck down,” says Deora. “We work on self-confidence and self-esteem. We try to offer intensity without intimidation.”

They opened last year in a 12,500 square foot space in North McKinney. The beginning was a little rocky. “We had three kids the first three weeks,” laughs Mike. Today the enrollment is about 80, and they have a staff of four certified personal trainers.infinite2

The facility has a full weight room and over 6,000 square feet of turf workout space.

The maximum class size is 6, so kids get a lot of personal attention. Both boys and girls are in training. One of their students just got a soccer scholarship to Texas Southern.

They also offer new-age, lightweight, SG football helmets, made with aerospace materials.   The helmets are endorsed by NFL Hall of Famer Tim Brown of Dallas.

The facility is located at 2140 Redbud Blvd., Suite F, in McKinney. Their phones are 972-697-5141 (Mike) or 972-824-0741 (Deora).
