About Fit Speed
Fit Speed Athletic Performance was opened in 2011 by Matt Gates and Brandon Marshall after working together since 2005. With locations in Weston, FL (Ft. Lauderdale), Naperville, IL & Northbrook, IL (Chicago) Fit Speed has become a true performance facility built and designed for the elite athlete and viewed as one of the most elite, exclusive training facilities in the United States. Fit Speed has evolved to cater to a limited number of youth and high school athletes. Keeping athlete acceptance level low to ensure results from every single athlete that walks through our doors fits the desire to eliminate the cattle call gym atmosphere looking to be a "one size fits all." We have a different approach...we are about ACTUALLY GETTING THE ATHLETE BETTER!

About Project 375
Everything changed in 2011 when he was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. While Brandon Marshall triumphed under the stadium lights as one of the best wide receivers in professional football, his personal life was in turmoil. For years he struggled with the emotional instability that had crept its way into his life most importantly his relationships and his career. New York Jets All-­-Pro, Brandon Marshall was ready to face a different type of opponent.

For Michi Marshall who is certified in Behavioral Forensics and Behavioral Profiling and also holds a B.A in Psychology and a B.S in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida- the diagnosis was transformative.

As he put the pieces of his life back together, he and his wife Michi, took an oath to help others suffering from a mental illness or disorder. Together they co-founded PROJECT 375, a nonprofit organization dedicated to eradicating the stigma surrounding mental illness and disorders.

The Marshall's believe eradicating the stigma makes treatment possible - even for an individual playing arguably one of the toughest and most physical sports on the planet.
