Tampa Bay Area Parkour and Strength Training
« on: June 29, 2010, 10:20:57 PM »
So, it's about time the Tampa Bay area community got a kick start. If you've been looking for people to do parkour with, weight train/condition with, or both, here is the info you need:

I will be weight training every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at my house. PM or text me for my address (number is below). We will be training parkour on Saturdays at noon, probably at either USF, Downtown Tampa, or Medard state park. Make sure to check here or at the official Florida parkour page: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=69266848&id=2036390&fbid=10100446512008171#!/pages/Florida-Parkour/106362761395?ref=ts for more info.

My number is (813) 892-2057 Phone is temporarily down (Name is Chris) and my email is iloveparkour@hotmail.com

Call or text me if you have any questions. ANYONE can train with me any of these days for FREE.


Quick schedule:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Weight training.

Saturday: Parkour training at 12:00 P.M. (various locations, check here, the Florida Parkour Facebook page, or text/ call us for the exact location)



If you're new to the community, don't be shy! We are a very accepting community and you shouldn't be afraid to come out and do some parkour or weight training no matter your skill level! Hope to hear from everyone very soon.

Yeah Tom and I thought that the community was dieing out quite a bit and this would be the perfect way to jump start it. Anyways, awesome dude. Hope to see you out there as often as you can make it.

I'm new to the area, and I was wondering if I could come by one Sunday with my camera and see what Parkour is all about?

Sure man. Anyone is welcome to join us. I believe we're meeting at the USF parking garage across from the library at 1:30 on Sunday. If you need help with anything don't hesitate to ask on here or text/call us.

The range of people that come out is usually anywhere from 2 to 10. I know I will definitely be there on Sunday. I think Marvin, Vic, and Tom are coming too. Danny and some other people are going on Saturday as well.

Anybody doing anything today?  I'd love to go train with some of you guys and I have the day off.   :)

Well unless things have changed and I wasn't informed, then there should be some people out at USF Saturday around noon... I will be anyway.
