Hello everyone,,
Parkour, also known as free running, is a French military-designed training which utilizes obstacle courses. The obstacles requires extreme focus and a can-do attitude, and heavily utilize physical abilities such running, jumping, swinging, rolling and even climbing. It?s is a fun and exciting way to exercise and anyone can enjoy it.

Promotes quick-thinking skills ? Parkour requires participants to negotiate obstacles quickly. These sudden moments require you to exercise your brain and think on your feet. Practicing instinctive decisions making skills in parkour can lead to participants trusting their instinctive decisions in everyday life.
Fosters creativity ? Parkour encourages participants to use their creativity. Every obstacle you meet in parkour won?t have an obvious solution, so you must use your creativity to overcome it.
Boosts confidence ? Parkour builds confidence by allowing people مخزن آب to be able to conquer things they would never have even attempted before. For example, when you see a large wall that before seemed like an impossible feat and you learn how to scale and get over it you may feel as though you can accomplish anything.
Skill-related fitness ?  Skill-related fitness includes agility, balance, power, speed, coordination, and reaction time. In parkour you have to call upon these skills when jumping, climbing and balancing through obstacles.
