“I enjoy playing soccer, basketball and golf. Last September, I decided to attend Parisi Speed School to improve my speed and agility.

Thank you so much to Jen and Vince for helping me to achieve my goal.” – Athlete Malachy Reynolds

Carter was new to the Dryland program last fall. He immediately showed us he was a force to be reckoned with. Carter’s high energy level was at times a challenge to harness, however, he showed what he was made of and has made remarkable strides. His natural athleticism helps in the agility drills as well as strength and balance drills. Great job, Carter!
