I like the idea, only thing is this needs to be discussed cuz we dont want people just putting this anywhere... leave no trace remember.

Yeah, good call. I forgot that people put those things on objects other than their own vehicles. >.<

Hawaii academy and crossfit are great, but are there plans for a (hawaii) parkour gym? Seems like the best way to keep it going and create income streams for those who put so much effort and energy into setting this up. Give hipk a permanent home.

There are plenty of simple business models to follow: Hawaii academy for one, revolution parlor in Portland OR, there is one in Calgary, one in Texas

There are not that many parkour gyms in the country but this could definitely work. I am sure labor could be donated for design and construction. Vaults are cheap and easy to build. A mat floor (not a sprung dance floor) would be the most expensive part. Commercial/industrial rent is cheap.

Is anyone working on this? Are there potential investers?

Apex in CO, Primal Fitness in DC & Miami...
But Ozzi's taking it to the streets for the next training camp.

Agreed, pk belongs on the St. Wouldn't change outdoor bootcamps or jams, trail and architectural "playground" use or anything. There is no reason any of that would have to change if hipk had a headquarters.

Gyms make it accessible for beginners and youngsters and make parents feel secure.
