We survived

We survived the day of Parkour with Chris from Inner Monkey Parkour http://innermonkeyparkour.ning.com/. Everyone had a lot of fun and learned some cool moves that can be practiced and applied anywhere. We will be hosting another Parkour training session with Inner Monkey Parkour soon (don't miss it) and will be offering indoor training during the winter months for the local Traceurs. Parkour is a good way to develop, hone and meld all ten general physical skills widely recognized by exercise physiologists and trained with CrossFit
(1.Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance- The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen. 2. Stamina - The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy. 3. Strength - The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units,
to apply force. 4. Flexibility - the ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.
5. Power - The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time. 6. Speed - The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement. 7. Coordination - The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns
into a singular distinct movement. 8. Agility - The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another. 9. Balance - The ability to control the placement of the bodies center of gravity in relation to its support base. 10. Accuracy - The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity.) If you want to test your over all physical ability, learn something new and have a blast don't miss the next Parkour event.

Parkour (sometimes abbreviated to PK) or l'art du d├ęplacement[1] (English: the art of movement) is an activity with the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible, using principally the abilities of the human body.[2] It is meant to help one overcome obstacles, which can be anything in the surrounding environment—from branches and rocks to rails and concrete walls—and can be practiced in both rural and urban areas. Parkour practitioners are referred to as traceurs, or traceuses for females[3] (the verb tracer "to trace" is French slang for moving with extreme speed).
