Parkour Gymnastics

Parkour Gymnastics is the discipline or sport of running through an area using acrobatic techniques to negotiate obstacles quickly and efficiently. The word parkour is an alteration of the french word parcours which means route or course.

Freerunning is the sport of using creative movements such as flips or twists while moving through all kinds of environments. Using your surroundings to your advantage to move and create flow with your body.

Parkour Gymnastics has been referred to as an alternate fitness concept which presents a different way to stay fit other than going to the gym. While improving personal fitness parkour gymnastics also improves coordination. By training the basics, running, jumping, and moving on all fours, overcoming obstacles that may have seemed too challenging before, are now possible.
