The Parisi Story

More than 25 years ago, 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-personal approach to changing the face of American athletics as we know it. That was the birth of a new sports training franchise – Parisi Speed School.

Over two decades later, the Parisi dream still continues to expand.

  • More than 600,000 athletes trained

  • Over 95 locations in over 32 states across the United States

  • International facilities in Saudi Arabia 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 has allowed athletes to do the two things our program strives for. Athletes have improved their athletic performance, but more importantly, have developed a better feeling about themselves. At the Parisi Speed School, we know that the real reason an athlete does anything is to improve his or her self-esteem. This is the ultimate gift that we give to every athlete that experiences our program. Our trainers have literally traveled the globe to bring back the best sports training techniques and tools in the world. That is the only way we could have ever moved forward toward the training we offer today.

Parisi Speed School at Xcel Sportsplex is just one of the many Parisi Speed Schools that has proven to bring the best out in every athlete!
