Parkour is a Window to Truly Mastering the Body
In Parkour, the goal is to challenge the body to its limits and find creative, innovative forms of movement, incorporating obstacles in the environment. Athletes will jump, climb, vault, flip (when ready) and balance, breathing life into an otherwise static, unused object.
THIS is where people of all ages and experience can get the best mental and physical workout on the path to incredible results.
Parkour can help you become a better athlete; stronger, healthier, happier!
Parkour is a sport that can give you an entirely new perspective on the world around you and how you move through it.
Parkour can teach you to gracefully and SAFELY overcome obstacles in new and different ways.
Parkour opens our eyes to be able to leverage the strengths and understand and overcome the weaknesses in our body.
How do we train parkour safely?
Safety in Parkour is something that is relative to the individual and everyone will be started in a place that is comfortable for them.
We spend the time to master the progressions leading up to any skill, developing confidence, strength, and aptitude before implementing in in order to minimize risk of injury. The athletes you see on YouTube (not Michael Scott…) or in movies have spent 10,000+ hours off camera honing their skills in that area, drilling the fundamentals of the movement and worked on making their bodies strong and resilient.
We work with you to spend the time to truly master each step of the progressions, and in doing so build competence, and a high level of competence yields very safe parkour practices.
You will have the opportunity to send your videos to our coaches for professional feedback and advice!!
