What Our Clients Are Saying

— at Parisi Speed School, Memorial Athletic Club, Houston, TX

We recently enrolled both our kids in Parisi (8 & 10 years) & they have absolutely loved it! The coaches are great & we have seen much improvement in their speed, coordination, and strength. Their confidence level has improved greatly as well. Really cannot say enough positive things about the program, wished we would have started our kiddos sooner! — Christy Barnett

I recently graduated and am in college now, but I spent most of my time in high school at parisi. It is hard to say the impact it truly had on my life. Chris and the rest of the coaches are truly amazing, not just as coaches but as people. The coaches truly care about your success and your improvement. This isn’t just as an athlete, Chris constantly would ask how my grades are going and encourage me to keep up the hard work. Parisi was an experience that gave me confidence and joy. Because of Parisi I saw major improvement in just over a year. My vertical went from 17 inches to 29.5 inches. My 40 time went from 5.6 seconds to 4.8 seconds. My max bench went up to 250 and my squat went up to 315. Parisi is a one of my favorite places to be and I truly recommend it to anyone and everyone. — Nicholas Karolys

What can I about the Parisi program, Chris, and his amazing Coaching team. They have done wonders with our daughter. When our daughter started, her fundamentals were lacking. The team at Parisi trained her for strength, agility, speed, stamina and flexibility and drastically improved her basics to where the difference was night and day. Other parents noticed the improvements as well. We are so thankful that we met Chris and found Parisi. Our daughter has been attending this program since 2013 and continues to do so. The Parisi team also goes beyond the athletics program and is more like a family. During the recent Hurricane Harvey aftermath in West Houston, Chris and his team reached out to us and other members of the Community to offer assistance. That was truly heartwarming. Great people, great facility, great team. Fully endorse them. — Masood Abdulaziz

My daughter, Chloe, has been a steady member of the Parisi Speed School at MAC for 3 years. The goal was to improve her speed and strength in order to to better compete at the super champs level of tennis in Texas. Not only were the instructors knowledgeable in helping Chloe improve her speed and strength significantly, they also deeply care about her as an individual and a team member. Chris has helped with Chloe's self confidence as well as develop her to be a strong athlete. Chloe continues to attend Parisi classes even as a senior. We are very glad for Chloe to have had this unique experience. Our family are all members of the MAC and have been for years. I highly recommend this class to high level athletes in high schools and colleges or to teens or pre-teens who want to develop to be a good / outstanding athlete in any sport. — Angelique Sands

I could go on and on about Parisi Speed at MAC but I will keep it simple. It is great. Chris and Jeff have created a program that is great for all ages. Youth speed, strength, agility, etc. is definitely their wheelhouse. Many programs to choose from for all situations. Oh yeah, and they REALLY care about the success of your kid. Blessing to have my kids there. — John Denson

Been attending Parisi since I was 12 and now I'm 20 in college, it's been a great program and experience . It definitely helped me get faster and better with my sports while i was in middle school and high school. Coaches are great with the athletes and encourage them to become better everyday. Definitely recommend anyone wanting to get faster, stronger in their sports!!! — Netanya Garcia

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this program or the staff! My son has taken private lessons with Coach Chris off and on for almost a year and we have seen a remarkable improvement in his speed, strength, coordination and his confidence. It was truly one of the best decisions we have made! As a bonus, he really loves going. If you have ever considered it, schedule an evaluation you will be so glad you did! — Sara Skelton

Parisi speed school has been great for both my sons. It's improved their speed and taught them proper weight lifting techniques. The staff members are amazing. For the past 4 years we driven from Pearland to their place in the MAC center two times a week that's how much we like it there. — Rhonda Garza

I've been a coach and the co-director with the Parisi Speed School since 2007 at the Memorial Athletic Club. I can honestly say it's been the best learning experience for myself and the rest of our coaching team. If you are looking for tried and proven athletic skill techniques come learn from the best. Our team has a passion in working with youth ages 7 - 12 and teens from 13-18 years old. Speed is skill and we can prove it. — Jefferson Biehl

My son and daughter both participated in the Parisi Speed School Program at the Memorial Athletic Club and really enjoyed showing up to workout!! I was shocked and so were the coaches when they asked what my kids did for the summer and I told them it was the Parisi Speed School summer camps that helped them not only as an athlete but their confidence was increased by the work they had done! Love this place!! — Carrie Gimmestad

We started my son in Parisi at 7. He has ADHD and was not ready to be in the group class setting. He lacked focus and was not confident in his athletic abilities. He was not a kid who pushed himself to excel athletically. We enrolled him in private sessions 2 times per week for 30 minutes with Coach Cobo. It is hard to put into words the amazing transformation we have seen in him. Not only did we see a major difference in his physical abilities, but his focus, concentration and self esteem went through the roof. It has been such a great experience for us that we enrolled my daughter as well. They both love coming to Parisi and like my son, we have seen huge improvements in my daughters athletic ability. Chris and all the coaches there do an amazing job of motivating the kids and really making them want to try their hardest to reach their goals. I cannot say enough good things about Coach Cobo. He has motivated my son and encouraged him to set new goals each time he accomplishes a new skill or personal best...highly recommend!! — Alana Bethea
