Lionel Pieh

I’m Lionel Pieh with a diverse background with experience, skill and ability to implement a variety of effective sports training activities. A significant amount of my developmental years was devoted to playing football during high school, college and semi-professionally post college. Currently, I hold a Parisi Speed School Certification at the expert level. My undergraduate education was completed at University of Memphis, while earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing. Upon completion of my degree work and collegiate football experience at the University of Memphis, I extended my football talents and played in the American Football League in Europe.

During the past seven years I’ve worked as a speed coach at D-1 Sports Training and currently at Parisi Speed School. I have also worked as a personal trainer during the last three years. I trained the University of Memphis football team speed mechanics in the spring of 2006. By doing so, I was given the opportunity to be the assistant strength coach for the University of Memphis Basketball team while John Calipari was head coach. My desire is to provide an opportunity for individuals to better themselves beginning at the high school level or beyond, by providing guidance, skill building and addressing concerns pertaining to overall fitness for strength training and speed enhancement. Whether in a group or one-to-one, I individualized training to meet the needs of the individual within program requirements. My personal desire is to avail myself to help an individual strive for excellence and to exceed their own expectations.
