The Parisi Speed School at Franciscan Omni Health & Fitness is located in Schererville Indiana, just 30 minutes southeast of Chicago. Being a part of an 8,000+ member Medical Fitness Facility, owned by Franciscan Health, we recognized a need to serve the youth of our community in the same manner we have trained adults for over 40 years. The Mission and Values of Parisi Speed School perfectly align with our Franciscan Values as we strive to make impact on all children regardless of their ability or economic status. By impact, we mean teaching total conditioning and strength in muscles, but also strength in their character.
We truly want anyone that walks in to feel that “no one sits the bench at Parisi.” Since opening in 2008, we have been able to impact several hundred youth each year through our training, community outreach, and involvement in health fairs. Our greatest joy comes through empowering children to accomplish their goals and dreams. This last year we were able to help several of our athletes get scholarships at the collegiate level playing football, basketball, softball, baseball, tennis and track. Our environment and staff help build self-confidence and make everyone who walks through our doors feel like they are a part of our family.
