Our mission at FX Athletic Performance is to build our players into the best possible athletes and people they can be. We tend to the individual. What motivates YOU? What are YOUR success goals? What do YOU need to ensure progress towards those goals?
FX Athletic Performance assists young athletes in accomplishing both their short- and long-term athletic goals. Through an initial evaluation, our staff will learn all about who the athlete is as a whole, inside and outside of his or her sport. This gives us the information we need to develop an individualized program based on each specific athlete and his or her specific goals.
Our programs encompass skill, speed and agility, strength, endurance, power, core stability and injury prevention methods. Our facility is designed to accommodate youth soccer athletes as they work towards their dreams of playing high school, college and professional soccer. This allows for our staff to incorporate soccer skill training in the programs we design for our soccer athletes.
Not only do we have the qualifications to assist with the technical part of soccer, we have the resources, knowledge and experience to work with athletes of a wide variety of sports. We train these athletes in all aspects of athleticism to drive them to their full potential.
Andi is a Cincinnati native. Upon graduation from Lakota East High School, she successfully continued her soccer career at Slippery Rock University where she was awarded conference Freshman of the Year and has received All-America honors.
Along with a successful soccer career, Andi earned a degree in Exercise Science and Psychology and spent a semester as an intern with Specialty Orthopaedics. Here she spent her days working with athletes as young as 6, clients as old as 97, stroke victims, ALS patients, and so many more. Following college, she furthered her education, receiving a Sports Performance Diploma through United Soccer Coaches.
Andi began her career working as a trainer for Balconi Top Training, and now has turned FX Athletic Performance into the go-to facility for athletes of all ages to reach their fullest potential. Andi opened FX in 2018, and the facility has been an integral piece of hundreds of athletes lives since. Through the years, FX has assisted in the careers of over 60 college athletes, over 25 professional and semi-pro soccer players, and countless youth athletes of varying ages and sports.
Since the founding of FX, Andi has enjoyed two years of coaching the Princeton High School Girls' Varsity soccer team, followed by joining the Deer Park Girls' Varsity soccer staff in 2020 as the goalkeeper coach, where she still remains as assistant and goalkeeper coach.
“I want nothing less for our athletes than for them to achieve everything they ever wanted, and I will do whatever I can to assist them in doing just that. Whether it is on the field or off the field, I will support our athletes in everything they do, because in the end, their happiness is what means the most. Our athletes come in originally to hone in on their skills and get stronger or more fit. As a coach, my goal is to teach these players more than they ask me to - about their sport, fitness, and themselves. I want our athletes, when they leave FX, to realize that they got a lot more out of it than they were hoping for when they walked in on the first day.” –Andi Felix

“Since I began coaching, my sole focus has been to help our athletes reach their own unique goals on and off the field. My philosophy is that from a foundation of trust and mutual respect, we can help everyone be better athletes and people tomorrow than they are today. I’m not here to give our athletes the answers; my job is to provide the tools to find their own answer in their own voice. FX Athletic performance allows me to know each and every athlete on a personal level and become as invested in their goals as they are.”

"I have been going to FX for three years and have enjoyed learning from Andi and Alex what top end training looks like. I am excited to expand that role and become more involved in the training. Nothing is more rewarding as a coach than seeing players develop and improve their abilities in the game. My goal is to help all athletes become the best version of themselves and the player they want to be. Any player that is willing to put in the work individually, away from their club or school, deserves the best. I know they can achieve that here at FX, and I am excited to be a small part in their journey." --Mike Fry

Yes, we help our clients become the best athletes they can be, but there’s a subtle and very important difference to how we get there. It’s about addressing the core of the human spirit, also making you the best person you can be who does EVERYTHING to the best of your ability.
It’s that effort, always giving more than the next person, always giving more than you ever knew you could give, once instilled, that will never fail you.
These lessons are a part of every program we run. They become habit that carries over into all aspects of life. And they make true champions, on and off the field.
