Title: Parkour Friendly Gyms
Post by: Mark Toorock on October 05, 2008, 06:23:38 PM
I don't believe we've actually set out to compile a list of places yet where one can go to train - gymnastics facilities, etc.

So that we can keep this as a valuable thread to point people to going forward, I'm going to ask that the information stay factual and unbiased (ie no advertisements, only info)

If you know of a gymnastics gym or other facility that teaches or allows Parkour, Freerunning, or Tricking training, please add it here.

In the interest of utility, please list the State, the City / Town, The name of the gym, and a link if possible, along with their offering or a brief summary.

Some helpful info would be like:
"allows adults at open gymnastics Friday nights at 7:00-8:30 for $15"

Thanks!
M2

edit by Leon: I'll be taking a  hold of these and adding them to the APK Hotspots map one day  ;)

Monkey Bar Gym
Madison, WI

Offers functional/natural training (similar to CrossFit) as well as a type of yoga designed to help athletes with various injuries related to overuse, alignment, etc. (I forgot the name but will check with Chad--it is AWESOME stuff and the only thing that fixed my hip when I injured it over a year ago).

Also offers parkour training sessions, led by Chad of Madpk (and me, sometimes). Schedule varies.

Badger Gymnastics Gym
Madison, WI
Adult Gymnastics classes Mondays 6:30-7:45
Adult Open gym Thursdays 7-8:30

So far only Chad has gone to the adult gymnastics class and he enjoys it a lot. We are working with them to set up some Madpk training sessions during their open gym but it is still very tentative. Our hope is to have a regular Madpk training session during Badger's open gym during the winter months.

I'll update this post when I have more details/info.

Hey PhreshToast!  Check out ASAP.  www.artisticsportsacademyplus.com   This is where we go.  They have an open gym every Sunday, and are very "parkour friendly."  If you can get a ride out there, our club will be there this Sunday July 26th.  It is from 3:30-5:00pm and costs $10.  So far, this is the only place we've found in the area that is willing to accomodate us.  Anyway, hope to see you there.

Ashley,
Check out http://tumbletimegymnastics.com/. I can't verify how parkour friendly they are, but they do offer open gym time.  I'm not from Boise, but just google "Boise gymnastics open gym" like I did, and you should have a good start at finding a place.  From my experience with gyms, just call them ahead of time, explain what it is you want to do, and see if they're okay with it.  They may know about parkour or you may have to explain it to them.  Good luck.

D.C. Gymnastics (Tumble Jungle)
Every wednesday from 7-8:30, we have open gym.
The Gym is Pk friendly, but only allows 50 people for open gym.
The fee is only $5. (have to have a liability waiver signed tho, but if over 18, sign for yourself)

Also, to show their Support for Pk, they started a Parkour Class, every wednesday from 6-7.
I teach the PK class there. (Along with my friend Jimmy, who leads the TVHS pk team.)
The fee for that is $65/ Month, but also includes entry to Open Gym.

As well, every Friday night, they have Parents night out, (PNO) and it varies every other week from 2hr and four hrs.. as i Know more info, Ill post here. (i usually dont go to PNO, so idk the times.)

But thats the only training area that parents are accepting, cause of pads and saftey features.

Thats the only Gym in Temecula area that i know accepts Parkour.

A gym made specifically for parkour, classes in martial arts, yoga and general fitness are also part of the schedule.  Drop-in times vary by day but the gym is open every day except for Sunday.  Currently have both introductions to parkour, advanced classes and woman's classes.
Drop in is $10 I believe, membership $120 but with unlimited drop in and free classes of any sort. 

Totally an excellent place to practice anything you want, experienced traceurs are always around to lend a hand and everyone is super friendly/easy going.

Just updating the post, since it isn't mine this is the only way to do it

but I'll post these two things

$10 admission for open gym... not sure how much the classes are.
Also, a decent number of traceurs train here as well as a ton of beginners! Really friendly community!

Not an instructor or anything here, just a part of the class:

Mon - Fri: 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sat: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Open gym every Friday from 6 pm - 8:30 pm! $10 for members/$15 for guests

Parkour classes
Saturdays from 11:30-2:30 PM $5 per class (Class=1 hour, 3 classes in one session)
Class 1: 11:30-12:30
Class 2: 12:30-1:30
Class 3: 1:30-2:30

I'm assuming open gym is parkour friendly because of the parkour classes. Most of the session on Saturday consists of tricking and freerunning work and less fundamentals.

Hello. I live in the PA and really would like a gym to use so I can learn how to do flips and other parkour tricks. I have been doing a lot of research and can only find places that are over an hour away. Can anyone help me find a gym that allows people to practice parkour.

I live in in Glenmoore PA. zip code 19343.

Thanks!
