Not only are the girls constantly improving, as evidenced by the most recent Cat Club Challenge, but they enjoy it as well. They truly respect and love all of the coaches and we are really looking forward to another great year with you and your staff. In addition to the training that the girls are getting, the entire family, myself and my husband as well, are so very grateful for the constant support that you show to each one of them. The day that I found your facility was definitely an amazing beginning to a new extended family.
Since starting his one-on-one training with Coach Erin, Liam has increased his confidence and shown a marked improvement in both his speed, agility and baseball skills. In addition, his upper body strength has shown marked improvement as he is now able to do sit-ups and push-ups whereas he lacked the upper body strength to do so beforehand. The increase in upper body strength has resulted in Liam improving his hitting skills in baseball. Where he used to only hit the ball in the infield, now he has more pop in his bat and is hitting the ball in the outfield! While Liam needs to continue working on his overall skills we are confident that Parisi will assist him in continued development of strength, agility, speed, and lateral mobility needed to continue his success in baseball. We are very grateful for the time and effort Erin put in with Liam as the hard work is evident on the baseball field. In addition, Liam has a more positive and confident attitude toward his athletic performance. Thank you so much for your patience and encouragement. We are confident that his progress will continue.
We have two kids and have used the Parisi Speed School for three years to prepare for sports seasons, boost confidence and improve performance. The results for their development and self-esteem have been exceptional. The staff at the Parisi Speed School at Old Town Athletic Club in Warrenton, VA is professional, energetic, and knowledgable. This year, our son had a horrible accident at football practice. He had a spiral fracture of his femur resulting in the bone breaking into five different pieces. While looking at the x-rays, the doctors continually told us that our son’s leg was saved because he was so strong at the time of the break. They said his leg muscle was so dense and uniformed, the pieces of bone were kept in place and did not break through the skin. During rehabilitation, his accelerated progress was also attributed to how strong he was before and at the time of the break. Only five months after his surgery, he was back at Parisi for his first evaluation session and he is now back to attending regular sessions build his strength and confidence back. Throughout this accident and rehab, Erin - the Parisi Director, would call and make sure she understood where he was in his progress and how she could help when the time came. When our son was finally cleared to start running again, the Parisi staff worked with us and the doctor’s instructions to come up with a entry level program so that our son could start running again with friends and not be embarrassed by setbacks that come with getting back into shape. I cannot over emphasize the active performance and preventive injury benefits we have had from our relationship with the Parisi Speed School at the Old Town Athletic Club in Warrenton, Virginia. I strongly recommend the program to any parent who is has an active child involved in preparing for an upcoming season of organized activity.
Her speed and endurance has improved greatly thanks to training at Parisi this past winter. At a recent soccer tournament it showed on the field. Everyone was commenting on how much faster she had become. She not only got faster and stronger but had a blast.
Just wanted to let you know Logan had lacrosse tryouts yesterday. So many coaches and other Dad’s came up to my husband and I to say how much quicker and faster Logan looked. They all wanted to know what he had done since football season to improve so much. Of course we gave your program all the credit. With all the comments we received yesterday, we know the classes have improved his speed greatly.
Hi Erin, I didn't get to thank you in person last night because you were busy, but I wanted to thank you and Mike for your Speed School! The classes have made an improvement in Jess' performance in football this season, so much that his team went to the Division Championships! Although, his team didn't win, they were able to keep an undefeated team from scoring all but one touchdown in the first half! The final score was 20-6; but I tell you. Jess sacked the untouchable quarterback in the backfield and single-handedly stopped an extra point. Jess pulled 9 sacks and 40 assisted tackles this season! All of his quickness, agility and focus is because of what you all STARTED to teach him! I am so excited to see what more you have in store for him. As soon as I have the finances to invest the girls in Parisi, I plan to move forward with them! This is the best athletic performance investment I've made for Jess! I can't thank you enough for this program!!
On another note just some feedback...from Dylan...he loves Total Conditioning and the obstacle course. He thinks it's great that there are a variety of coaches so you always get a different/unique workout experience. New classes are always a plus. As a parent, it was great to see that Dylan was so "in shape" when football practice started! I can really see a difference in him and a lot of the other kids as far as fitness level. His speed has definitely improved and there was no extreme exhaustion after the first week. Our money has been truly well spent and we so appreciate all the individual attention and guidance that he receives at Parisi. It is paying dividends!
You all have done such amazing things for my boys! I don't know how to thank you for the self confidence and the power you have given them both physically and mentally to just be the best that they can be! Both of them just push a little harder and I really think it is because in Parisi they have been taught it is ok to try and see where you can go and know that improvement is part of the process. So, thank you and all the Coaches for the fantastic work that you do!
You have no idea how happy I am... :). She has set some goals for herself, and is starting to reach some of them...
I know I have seen the improvement in her soccer game. I am excited at how much she likes Parisi and how much her fitness has improved.
Let me share a little of Alison's history. Alison has suffered with asthma since she was a baby. She also has allergies that enduce her asthma. She was limited in many activities that required exertion. We worked with her allergist and was able to get her asthma under control enough to have her participate in sports activities. When she first started soccer, she was very timid and had no confidence, she often ran away from the ball. After her second season playing soccer ended in the fall of 2011, we wanted a program that kept her active and helped to build her confidence. We were recommended Parisi from a friend and Alison quickly connected with all the coaches. In the beginning, we were not sure she could do an entire hour session, however she did from the start and the coaches made it fun for her. Before we knew it, Alison was going 4-5 times a week to Parisi and looking forward to attending. She returned to soccer in spring of 2012 with a new attitude. She had confidence and was able to keep up with most players on the field. She didn't run away from the ball, but attacked it, and actually scored goals, which we were very surprised to see. Parisi has been a great program for Alison at some many levels and we expect to see her grow in confidence, strength and speed entering her second year in the program. Thank you to all the wonderful coaches.
I would also like to let you know the progress that Shane has made this past year...he came to Parisi as a pretty good athlete but he needed to improve his speed. I just wanted to thank ya'll for doing an outstanding job of helping him! He still has quite a ways to go to reach his target goal. I believe he can probably still make up a couple tenths in learning to get a quicker start, and by getting better form. Hopefully the rest will just come with hard work and continued growth. Keep doing what ya'll are doing, and thank you for working with him.
Thanks to the Parisi staff, I'm having a great year, injury free, and leading receivers in TD's (5). I couldn't have done it without you guys.
Both of our boys (ages 10 and 12) have participated in Parisi since it started at OTAC last January. We think very highly of the program and the Parisi trainers. The training allows the boys to work on many areas that time does not allow for at a team practice. They each have their own unique goals and we have seen improvements in strength, speed, form, agility, and coordination. More importantly, we have noticed increased determination, better focus and greater confidence. When Jason, our rookie football player, made the middle school team this fall, he couldn't wait to get to the gym to share the news. All of the coaches are outstanding role models and the boys love working with them. The flexibility of the program also works well for our family. Our goal is to attend 2-3 classes per week and we are able to work that in around homework, sports practices and scouts. The ability to freeze Jimmy's membership during a dual rec baseball/travel soccer season is ideal for us. We know that long after team sports are over, Parisi will have helped us meet our goal of raising two boys who embrace physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle.
The Parisi Speed School at Old Town Athletic Club has taken me to a level in my physical abilities that I never thought I could reach, and all in a short period of time. About a year ago I hit a plateau in terms of my strength, speed and agility. I was no longer unique to my sport of football. I was becoming the status quo in terms of performance and productivity on the field. I began training at the Parisi Speed School and through the realization of poor technique and the process of correcting those technical flaws, my numbers (i.e. times, reps, etc.) improved. The Parisi coaches pushed me past mental and physical boundaries that I thought I could never break and I could not have been happier with my performance as a result. My mental and physical awareness have never been better; my ability to adapt to new situations on the field of play has soared to new heights, and I have never felt more confident about my capabilities as an athlete. I am forever hooked on the philosophies of Parisi and I stand by the Instructors that teach those philosophies at OTAC 100%.
The Parisi Speed School has been the best athletic training program I have ever taken part in. I saw noticeable results having only trained within the program for the summer. My speed, agility, and explosiveness were the three areas that I wanted to improve upon and I was very pleased to have improved in each of these areas. I have seen a visible difference on the playing field as well. Playing lacrosse, or any sport for that matter, at the Division 1 level is all about speed and training with the Parisi Speed School has allowed me to be the fastest player I can possibly be on the field. I would highly recommend this program to any individual looking to compete at the highest level in the sport they play.
The Parisi training program at Old Town Athletic Club improved my speed and agility greatly. With the help of a trainer, I was able to cut my mile time down by over a minute. I was so proud of all that I was able to achieve through this program and I'm so thankful for all the help that I received.
My son Tony is 10 years old and loves to play sports. I could think of no better training tool than to teach him at an early age how to run. Not just how to run but how to run correctly. Parisi teaches the correct way to run all while improving his strength, agility and confidence. The instructors enjoy teaching and the kids look forward to participating and competing every class. It is well worth the time and effort.
I like how I have improved in my workouts. I like all the coaches and how they are always there for me when I need them. I think Parisi is very fun. Parisi doesn't just help you with one sport, it helps you with all sports.
