In the early 1990’s, Bill Parisi started out toward a dream. His All-American track career over, he saw numerous limitations in the way American athletes were training for sport and he wanted to help remedy the situation. Armed with only a motivational speech, some equipment, and a $500 van, Bill drove to high schools in the area looking for coaches and teams that wanted to take advantage of state-of-the-art training techniques. That was the single-handed beginning of what has now become a multi-person approach to changing the face of American athletics as we know it. That was the birth of the Parisi Speed School.
Today, the Parisi dream continues to expand. With over 1,000,000 athletes from every level of athletics having experienced Parisi Speed School, the program is aimed at launching a nationwide awareness toward sports performance training. There are now over 90 locations in 31 states across the United States and China, and the plan is to continue to grow. From athletes 7-years old all the way to the Professional and Olympic ranks, The Parisi Speed School offers its athletes three things:
1.) Improved athletic performance
2.) Increase in confidence
3.) Athletic work ethic
Training at a Parisi Speed School provides growth physically, mentally, and emotionally. The home base flagship Parisi Speed School facility is unlike any other facility in the country. Bill Parisi designed the facility strictly with the athlete in mind. Located in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, the multimillion dollar, 33,000-square-foot facility boasts a 60-yard, 6-lane Mondo track, a 40-yard indoor turf field, and a superior weight training area. This facility has been operating successfully for over 20 years and has averaged over $1 million a year in sports performance revenue every year since 2001. These numbers are not meant to impress you, but to impress upon you the fact that our program works. Without the results that we have produced over the years, the company could never have grown from that $500 van to where it is today.
As the industry leader in performance enhancement, we will continue to deliver a positive training experience that improves speed of movement and strength in character regardless of ability or economic status.
