Found a place to train in Philly
« on: October 11, 2009, 02:47:45 PM »
Not sure how many of y'all may know this or not but Temple does an open gym every Sunday from 11-1 for $10 they got a spring floor and they let you get on all the equipment. The gym is right on Broad st and Montgomery av hope to see yall there  ;D


Your never to old for something new. i know an 80 something year old woman who is a black belt in karate and  comes to train with us every chance she gets. So if she still kicking there's no reason for me to be sitting lol.

I know where this is!... :)

Gabe, it's that building with the huge sculpture of the guy holding the girl who's doing a handstand... I'm pretty sure at least.

Remember where we met up last time, and I was on the other side of the street? That corner.

Sounds great man! I'll start to figure out when we will start he sessions back up. But if you've been really hurting to get out for some Parkour, we got a jam coming up here: http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,23359.0.html

Your free to just show up for the 2nd day when we'll be in Philly, or show up both days if you can! It's gonna be a lot of fun.

Thanks a lot for giving me the heads up about the gym. Means a lot.

Who would be up for going to the gym on the 7th?  This looks really cool and I'm trying to do a bunch of work leading up to the Philly Project, so I need the practice in a gym!  :P

Hahaha. Well he might be going down to family to watch it, so that's like a 2 hour drive from Philly compared to the regular 30 min. from Rowan.

But we'll definitely get these gym sessions set up again...

Off-Topic: I'm gonna be in Philly on Monday for an interview with The Hussian School of Art. Wish me luck!
