Parkour training rig -- right outside!

Posted in: Drivel, Sport

After having my imagination captured by free-running / parkour I've started looking at urban street architecture in terms of running and jumping around and over it. And wondering how I'd train for this. By some bizarre fortune it turns out there are seven outdoor exercise stations spread out around a playing field almost adjacent to home! (I'd seen it before but not with the eyes of a budding freerunner...)

This evening, after a one km warm-up run I spent a very pleasant 45mins jumping, twisting, handstanding, pull-up'ing and generally taxing my ankles, wrists, and shoulders. What fun! And with a pull-up bar I have pretty much everything I need to hammer most muscle groups and thus avoid a gym membership... Woo-hoo!

Posted by Paul Makepeace at July 29, 2004 22:14 | TrackBack

i want to know where i could find a gym so i can train for free running/parkour as i want to get started.

Parkour is easy to start training for. All you have to do is drill the basics.. every type of vault you can think of, precision jumps over gaps etc. If anyone wants any advice, feel free to contact me at

Alternatively, check out This is Edinburgh's main Parkour website, where any of your questions will be answered (even if you're not from Edinburgh).
Check out the videos section, , you will find tutorials of all the main techniques and moves.

I'm from DC and do "Parkour". I didn't know there was name for it until today. I've done it my whole life and thought I invented it (In my mind I always thought of it as an extreme sport to be held in heavily wooded areas). The ability to know my surroundings and distribute my weight as quickly and quietly as possible has always been my goal. Anyway I know some really good areas in Washington DC, especially around Rock Creek Park, The Palisades neighborhood, and Great Falls. I typically scale trees while I’m at it (I don't know if that's also part of Parkour but it's challenging). And if anyone has the chance, go to Schoodic Point, Maine. That's where I first remember challenging myself at age 8. Fun place. Except if you fall in the wrong place you fall to your death.

Is there any parkourists in medway if there is email me i'd ,like to train with you or them.

Posted by: Dyno at January 25, 2008 12:26

for anyone wanting to start parkour I have a few words of advice for you. I have been doing parkour for several years now.

for starters learning Parkour in a gym is NOT a good idea, as this will not allow your mind to develop for when u attempt any PK in an outdoor environment.

another thing is, DON'T use gloves. I've seen alot of new people wear gloves to protect their hands, while gloves do protect, they also give you less grip than with bare hands. Not only that, they stop ur hands forming a rough layer of skin that will prevent scratches and blisters from doing things like cat leaps and so on.

third tip: start small. people who go out first time and try the huge jumps and stuff tend not to last long and get injured very quickly.

fourth: no matter what people tell you, flips are NOT parkour!! parkour is all about getting from one place to another in the most efficient way possible, flips aren't efficient.

number 5: boy I have a lot of tips on this. always look for new ways to move. there may be some fundamentals that you will need to learn, but don't be afraid to expand. if u find a better way to pass on obstacle then use that way.

finally: it's never a good idea to train alone, u should always have at least 3 people training, this is simply for safety reasons but can also cause you to push each other harder to become better

I hope that this helps :)
