"We will provide a positive training experience for every student regardless of age or ability. We believe in empowerment through training."

ALL OF  OUR MEMBERS ARE INSPIRED TO MAKE PERMANENT LIFESTYLE CHANGES THROUGH THIS SAFE AND PROVEN TRAINING SYSTEM.

Champions opened in June 2011 with the aspiration of becoming one of the Nations Top Youth Athletic Training Facilities. In the Parisi Speed School System, and Bill Parisi specifically, Owner Greg O'Connor found the perfect philosophical match. Their mutual drive to empower young athletes with the "Skill" of speed has indeed made Champions a nationally known facility. Champions has trained and changed the lives of thousands of kids and its success is unparalleled. Using the Parisi System, increased speed, strength, and confidence is attained by every student. Champions was named Lake Norman (LKN) Business of the Year in 2014, and Parisi Speed School of the Year in 2016. 

 

Champions also has an empowering adult training program called Training for Warriors. "TFW" comes from Parisi DNF, with Founder Martin Rooney having been COO of Parisi for 15yrs. The program is safe, results driven, and empowering as well. All TFW members Lose Fat, Get Strong, and Feel Great. Over 2/3 of our TFW members have or have had their kids train in the Parisi Speed School Program, making Champions a true Family Training Center!
