Amazing news for Tampa!!!
« on: August 01, 2009, 07:48:57 PM »
So the owner of the new gym Excel 360 held an open gym this Saturday to celebrate the grand opening of their new gym. Long story short we attended and displayed some movements from our discipline along with some gymnastics flips and we had them hooked. By the end of the session Excel 360 wants me to start teaching Parkour classes at their gym. They even want to build some scaffolding in the back along with some other vault boxes and things!

When faced with the stress of a life-threatening engagement, we don't rise to the occasion, we descend to our level of training.

That ties it. I'm moving into tampa. I'll put in a transfer to brandon. This would be such a perfect stepping stone to opening our own gym.

Yeah I am so excited, I just wish I lived as close as you guys did. But on all my days off I will be at the gym organizing things and teaching gymnastics before we actually set up the Parkour classes.

I'm telling you, i know you're the big shot star player of our group haha but there are plenty of us that would be glad to help out and teach if they want more classes.

We are taking everything one step at a time, we don't want to push our limits just yet. I am going to test the waters and see if I can actually get people to join classes and if we can get a substantial amount of people then we will definitely go from there.

Yeah, starting out is going to be hard.  We're really lucky in Orlando to have this guy Andy involved with the community.  He may not be a model traceur (He likes being on rooftops :-\), but he knows a ton of people and he's great at getting them to come out and do things with/for us.  Without him we would've been hard-pressed to have as great a turnout as we did in our first class.

Here this will give everybody the info they need to call and ask about Parkour classes and get directions. The more people to call and ask about Parkour classes the more support I can get on my side, so I can start building more stuff in their gym. So call please and ask about classes.
