Parkour, also known as "Free Running" or "Urban Acrobatics" as it is known is a new sport that is rapidly gaining popularity all over the world. This is the art of negotiating various obsticles while moving around an enviroment.
It is based very strongly on gymnastics and requires immense strength, coordination and lightning reflexes.
The aim to move from one place to another, negotiating the obstacles in between. In urban enviroments the discipline uses no equipment but in the gym, we have special obsticals built to train on. This is a non-competitive sport. A male practitioner is generally called a "traceur", a female a "traceuse".
At StrikeGym our number 1 priority is always safety and the head instructors, Blake, will never put members in a dangerous situation.
This class is open for members 10 years old and up.
I really love StrikeGym in Coconut Creek. I have joined other gyms in the past and been less than satisified. I decided to try StrikeGym and I am amazed with the excellent trainers and facilities. In the past I was not a morning person, but for the past three weeks I have been consistently attending the 6:15AM conditioning class five times a week. The instructors are very supportive and assist you with learning the exercises and ensuring you perform them correctly to avoid injury. Going to the gym without motivation will not produce results, but attending the classes at StrikeGym of Coconut Creek is like having a personal training session on a daily basis. Other gyms I have attended in the past consistently try to upgrade and sell you higher memberships with contracts while at StrikeGym Coconut Creek there is one no contract membership. They are more concerned with motivating and helping you than trying to get more money out of you. I would highly recommend you check out StrikeGym Coconut Creek.
