Health club industry leader, 24 Hour Fitness announced today its
collaboration with Parisi
Speed School, a leader in youth athletic performance enhancement.
This unique venture, being introduced to two new 24 Hour Fitness®
clubs in California, brings together 30 years of fitness expertise from
24 Hour Fitness and 20 years of specialized youth training experience
from Parisi Speed School. Together, the two companies will provide
training programs designed to improve fundamental athletic skills,
speed, quickness and self-esteem among youth ages seven to 17, and
people of all ages.
"24 Hour Fitness believes in the importance of providing our youth with
activities and resources that will help them stay active and lead
healthier lives," said Randy Drake, senior vice president of fitness and
business development, 24 Hour Fitness. "Programs like those offered by
Parisi Speed School enable us to provide children and teenagers with
proven, successful and fun programming that will help them improve their
physical skills and self-confidence."
Kicking off the partnership will be the new 24 Hour Fitness Super-Sport
clubs scheduled to open in San Diego and Livermore, Calif. in late
December. Both clubs will feature custom outdoor training areas, and
offer approximately 20 classes per week in addition to one-on-one
training sessions with certified Parisi Speed School coaches.
"Like us, 24 Hour Fitness has been a great supporter of youth fitness
and we are honored to partner with a fitness industry leader," said Bill
Parisi, founder and CEO, Parisi Speed School. "Through this
collaboration, we will provide children and teens across the country
with extra-curricular fitness programming that will help keep them
