Description:
Can’t make it to the gym? Want to try your skills in the real world? Our Outdoor classes follow the same curriculum as the Foundations classes offered at the gym. We teach students all of the basic movement patterns involved in parkour, including running, jumping, rolling, swinging, and vaulting. Each week the classes focus on movements within one of these five categories, rotating through the categories every five weeks. There are multiple movements to be learned within each of the categories, so the drills, skills, and techniques emphasized change each time the category comes up in the rotation. Students may begin the rotation at any time, and continue through as many rotations as desired. Students also learn our core values (Respect, Discipline, Responsibility, Commitment, and Leadership) and what they mean in practice.

What to expect:
Each Outdoor class will involve a discussion of values, a warm up, a strength/conditioning component, skill work and drills, and a cool down. Although not a high-intensity class, it but likely will be physically demanding to some. Be mindful of the specific challenges brought by weather variations. Please bring a water bottle.
