“Pasadena is a tough market for opening a health club. We have multiple competitors from big box chains to personal training studios everywhere. We really wanted that special “something” to really separate ourselves from everyone else. That special something was our Parisi Speed School program. The ability to work with kids as well as adults has opened up our market and made us a truly exceptional club. We wouldn’t think of opening another club without a Parisi Speed School in it!”
