Why I Started Parkour
I liked flipping and doing stuff everyone else thought was crazy or impossible, then I found out they had classes just for that! I thought the first gym that I walked into was like an adult playground and Parkour was a way to let the inner child out, and I haven't grown up since!
 
Why I Love Parkour
It provides a way of expressing yourself that is unique to everyone. It is an individual sport that is perfect for challenging yourself and pushing personal limits but the community is like one big family.

Corkscrews and advanced movements
 
Why I Started Parkour
I grew up playing video games and watching old kung-fu movies. I always admired how the characters would fearlessly jump from thing to thing and run up walls to get where they needed. One day I decided I was going to be like my heroes, so I started practicing movements. Before I knew it I could do everything they could!
 
Why I Love Parkour
While Parkour started as just emulating the people I look up to, it is now something I can no longer describe. I'd love to be able to put it into words, but honestly I feel all words fall short. Parkour is my life, passion, challenge, growth, and fun. Parkour is everything to me.

Generalist, Power Jumping
 
Why I Started Parkour
Having played conventional sports such as basketball for most of my life, I wanted to explore physical activity in a different way. I was drawn to the raw athleticism and “be strong to be useful” philosophy displayed by the practitioners of the time.
 
Why I Love Parkour
Through Parkour, I gained an appreciation for movement from a different perspective, one that focuses on freedom, self-directed challenge, environmental awareness, and functional fitness. As I practiced Parkour, I got to know an amazing community of people who I continue to train with today. As an instructor, I have seen the benefits of Parkour in the physical literacy and confidence of younger practitioners and this has inspired me to pursue a degree in Kinesiology and teaching.
