Open gym bananza!
« on: February 02, 2008, 08:36:49 AM »
hey guys! look if we can get about 15+ people who would regurally show up, premier gymnastics would hold an open gym this summer only for people doing parkour and freerunning once a week. This means no little kids getting in your way, or to many people. I would be just us! but i need to know how many people would show and then we can pick our time a extra.

Also if your woundering.
They have an awesome assortment of things we can use. foam pit, this realy cool area where the ground is a super pad, lot of bars and of course a spring floor. many boxes and what not to vault over. the places is freakin awesome!

So if you would show up once a week just tell me.
What if you fail?
I won't.

I live in Gretna, and with gas prices i can't possibly afford to drive 30 miles twice a week.

you don't need to go both days man.
Plus unless you get horrid mpg I don't see why not just trying to come once.
What if you fail?
I won't.

well, my best friend and started last summer, but he seemed like he really wasn't into it, so  he pretty much stopped. i have done some training, but mostly with a gym. doing lifts and stretching. I don't have much of anything to really practice parkour on/in/around/ect... and so far the only tricking i can do includes: cart wheels one hand/two hand, kick-up, front handspring, and thats pretty much it. I can do most parkour moves but my balance/precision, and handstand balance is kinda low. but im pretty decent, most of my issues are just fear. But really,l im not bad, i just need some practice and a critical eye to tell me what im doing wrong and right.lol
