You will be seeing people move a little quicker around southwest NH and eastern VT in the coming weeks. The Summit Athletic Center is the newest Parisi Speed School location at 9 Canada St. The Summit Athletic Center is the 92nd facility in the Parisi Network and will be ramping up with a full range of speed, strength, and conditioning programs over the next 60 days.
“The Parisi Vision really spoke to me. I have huge passion for fitness and I love working with kids. The fact that I will be doing both every day is a huge blessing,” said Program Director Ben MacArthur, a Bryant University graduate, multi-sport standout from VT, and strength coach at Monadnock Regional High School.
The Parisi Speed School is unique in the fitness industry because the focus is on the training and fitness of athletes in the 7-18 age range. Through our proprietary methodology, the Parisi Youth Training System has four separate programs designed to work with athletes of all skills and abilities. When a new athlete signs up, they take the Parisi Evaluation, where they are taught Parisi’s signature Active Dynamic Warm-Up, are analyzed while running through several drills, and tested in a battery of physical speed and strength movements. After the evaluation is complete, a certified performance coach reviews the results and selects the appropriate program for the athlete. The Parisi Speed School also has programs geared towards team training and for adults looking for athletic training as well.
Some of the world’s top athletes have benefited from the Parisi Youth Training System including Chris Long, former No. 2 overall draft pick in the 2008 NFL Draft and current New England Patriot, as well as Tobin Heath, mid-fielder for the US Women’s National Soccer Team and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist.
The Parisi techniques are evidence-based, time-tested, and will be integral to helping improve youth athletes throughout the area.
“The Parisi Speed School is the next logical step for The Summit Athletic Center. We can’t get started fast enough,” stated Managing Director and facility owner Steve Holland, “Whether a young athlete wants to make a team, just get in shape, or reach their peak potential, Parisi has a program that will help them achieve their goals and increase confidence on and off the field.”
