Hey Firey!!

Sorry, can't help on the ride/train situation as I'm up in the Boulder should be able to catch a bus from downtown Denver to Boulder though and its a quick bike to the spot from there.

I'm super new myself and the Spot classes are an excellent way to train safely and learn a lot more about Parkour. (As well as meet some great folks!)

Hope to see you there!!

MAN that was fun!

Good crowd, good instructors and a totally sick workout for this old guy!! I think everything from my neck down is sore today!!

Anyone have any tips on recovery? My quads feel like bricks and I'm mewling like a kitten every time I go up and down my stairs...

Definitely looking forward to next week. Hopefully bring some friends along...

Just some quick thoughts:

1) If ongoing classes happen, could you look into adding a weekday night class? It would give some of us the opportunity to keep coming without getting too much flak from wives/husbands, girl/boyfriends etc for spending our weekend time in the gym instead of with them.  ;D

2) How about some homework? Either reinforcing skills learned that week, or prep for upcoming weeks?

 Thanks for a great class! See y'all next week!

Colorado / More info on the Spot classes?

Haven't gotten any info on the Spot website and I was curious about the upcoming classes...
Stuff like:

Do you need a Spot membership to take the classes?

How much are the classes going to cost?

Is there going to be a Parkour specific curriculum or is it more Parkour fitness? (I really need to learn how to wall run <grin>)

Will the classes be geared to a specific level of fitness? Or can any newbie join?

Really psyched on the classes! Looking forward to it!
