Bill Parisi is an internationally recognized fitness business expert and the founder and C.E.O. of the Parisi Speed School. Bill holds a degree in finance from Iona College and was a two-time NCAA Division I Track & Field All-American in 1988 & 1989. While at Iona Bill competed at the 1988 U.S. Olympic Trials in the javelin throw.

 

After graduating college in 1990, Bill attended the University of Florida where he studied human anatomy/physiology and served as a Graduate Assistant Strength Coach to the Gators Track & Field and Football teams. In 1991 Bill became a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialists (C.S.C.S.) through the National Strength & Conditioning Association.  Throughout this time he traveled the world to gain more knowledge about the best strategies on sports performance training.

 

Bill eventually moved back home and founded the Parisi Speed School in late 1992. Armed with only a $500 dollar van and a motivational speech, he became one of the originators of the Youth Training Industry in the United States. In 1993, Bill opened up the first sports performance facility within a Health Club in Wyckoff, NJ. At this time, Bill was a consultant to the NY Giants and was also commissioned by Nike to help develop the original high school football combines that were held across the nation.

 

By 1996, Bill's facility in Wyckoff became the highest grossing club per square foot in the country. This success, and excessive growth of his client base, allowed him to open his second club in Midland Park, NJ. This 17,000 square foot facility again dominated the marketplace and became nationally renowned in terms of sports performance training. In 2000 Bill built his flagship facility in Fair Lawn, NJ. This 32,000 square foot center has been home to over 50,000 athletes and hundreds of professionals in every major sport. This facility has become synonymous with world-class training, and 2009 Men's Health named it one of the Top 10 gyms in the country. In 2004, Bill opened his fourth facility, a 29,000 square location in Morris County, NJ and then realized that in order to impact as many youth athletes as possible; it was time to launch the program nationally through a franchise format.

 

In 2005, the Parisi Speed School began franchising to existing health related businesses to expose as many athletes as possible in the U.S. Now in 2013 there are over 75 facilities in 27 states across the country, and the Parisi Mission continues to expand. According to Franchise Times (2009), the Parisi Franchise was named one of the top growing franchises in the U.S.

 

Today, Bill still presents to thousands of business owners, athletes and coaches per year. Bill has lectured for NFL, Nike, Reebok, IHRSA, IDEA, NSCA, ACE, ACSM, Club Industry, Perform Better, and has been commissioned for 8thyear in a row to present for the NFL at the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony Football Development Clinic in Canton, Ohio. He also has contributed content for NFL Youth Development and USA Football Coaches on-line library and writes a monthly article on Performance Training and The Business of Sports Performance. In addition to speaking and writing, Bill has been featured on Fox Sports, ESPN, CNBC, CBI, and in Running Magazine.

Bringing nearly 23 years of experience in the strength and conditioning field, Scott Bennett is Radford University’s Head Strength and Conditioning Coach. Prior to his appointment, Scott worked as the Senior Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach for the James Madison Dukes where Bennett was directly responsible for programming baseball, softball, volleyball, and men’s tennis. He was also in charge of mentoring student interns, graduate assistants, and volunteers. Although Scott’s career has taken him as far west as Wyoming, he is no stranger to the New River Valley—having worked at Virginia Tech under Associate Director of Athletics for Athletic Performance Dr. Mike Gentry. During his stay with the Hokies, Bennett was responsible for the development of off-season and in-season strength and conditioning programs for 13 varsity sports, including testing and evaluation, proper training protocol, nutrition, and lifting technique. Prior to his position at JMU, Bennett was the Head Strength Coach at three other institutions—the University of Southern Mississippi, the University of Wyoming and Marshall University. In his career, Bennett has coached a multitude of collegiate athletes who have gone forward to find careers in the professional ranks (over 30 in the NFL), as well as conference champions, national champions, world record holders, and Olympians. Perhaps the honor standing out the most in his impressive list of accolades is his accreditation as a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach with the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Association (CSCCa) since 2006. At the time, there were only 62 certified at this level in the world. Today, there are roughly 100 practicing at the Master’s level. This honor paved the way for Bennett’s election to the CSCCa Board of Directors, a position he served for two terms. His involvement with the association allowed for him to be chosen as the first strength coach to be invited as an ex officio member of the NCAA Committee for Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports—a position he has held the last three years. In addition to his numerous certifications in the strength and conditioning field, Bennett was voted by the American Football Quarterly as the College Division Strength Coach of the Year in 1996 and was nominated for the NSCA Strength Coach of the Year in 2002.
