What we're about
We are a community of parkour and movnat practitioners in New York City!
Ditch the gym and get outdoors.
The human body was meant to move! True health and fitness is having the ability to move well, with strength, complexity, and creativity--running, jumping, swinging, crawling, climbing. We use parkour and natural movement to help you reclaim your body & rediscover just how fun movement and fitness can be!
Make the city your gym! Treadmills and weigh-machines aren't the solution to a sedentary lifestyle: you have to be able to use your body in any environment you are in, not just the gym! We take our classes outside, into the city and nature, and use everything from benches and curbs to trees and rocks to help us in building strength, mobility, and a movement practice for life
Follow Your Path! Whether you are barely able to do a push up or a seasoned and strong athlete, our community will meet you where you are (point a) and work with you to achieve your goals (point b). And, while our classes will push and challenge you, they are also progressive and safe. We believe in working with your body, not against it!
Parkour is for everyone, regardless of shape, size, and fitness level. When practiced correctly and consistently, it not only is safe but teaches one how to assess risk, cope with uncertainty, and think creatively.
The primary lead instructors are from the new york community, The Movement Creative (http://www.themovementcreative.com).
