Athlete Spotlight January 2017:
Step Dancer Grace McClay
“I started training with Jessica at Parisi Speed School because I wanted to become stronger, faster and more agile, which would help me with my two main sports — Irish dancing and soccer. I danced at the World Championships for Irish dancing earlier this year, and it is my goal to qualify to compete there again next year, so I need do a lot of extra work in addition to dancing to help me to meet my goal. In the short amount of time I have been training with Jessica, she has helped me so much. My strength has improved and my speed has increased tremendously. Every time I come to train, even though I’m tired and sweating, I have fun because my trainer is there beside me pushing me. Also, when I feel like I can’t do anymore, I tell myself I can do it, and that it’s only going to help me. I believe there is no limit to the ability to be successful; you can do anything and everything is possible. I’m so excited to continue training and to see additional improvements in the future.” – Step Dancer & Soccer Player Grace McClay
“Grace has made incredible progress since starting Parisi training. She is the perfect example of how skills of strength, speed, and agility, translate through all platforms, such as dance. Grace always comes to training in high spirits and eager to challenge herself. It is a pleasure to see Grace’s skills and confidence evolve through training.”– Coach Jess Petti
