Police-style report time!
Name: Rachel
Callsign: N/A
Phone: (937)-361-6975 (cell)
City: Well, it's more of a village actually, litterally... the Village of Yellow Springs, YS for short
When you started Parkour: Gah, maybe, three, four months ago?
What days are good for you: Uhm, depends on what you're asking about, that could be interpreted many ways.
How far you'd be willing to travel for a jam: It's not a question of how far I'm willing to travel, it's a question of how far my parents are willing o drive me. XD

By the way: I'm 16; I'm out of shape; and I constantly need swift kicks in the butt to keep me motivated, but I can usually do that myself.
Never do something you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics.

Oh hey, I live like less than fifty miles away.  Anyway, I know of Yellow Springs.  I think I remember a very fast runner came from there.

Wow, a lot of new people starting parkour this summer/spring it looks like.  I'm pretty excited!  Just to follow up on Muhammad's post if you're interested in training with some people who have some experience to share just contact myself, Nick Kelly, or Muhammad Howell - we're all Parkour Horizon guys based in Columbus.  We're always happy to see new faces and we run free training sessions three days a week (Mon, Wed, Fri) starting at 6:00 PM.  Muhammad already posted up our website but if you have facebook be sure to check our our group page too and introduce yourself there, even if you don't plan on coming to Columbus any time soon. :-D

Here's the link the facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=34899344349

One tip that beginners should always note: Don't jump off of anything that you can't jump onto.  A huge mistake that a lot of people make is let their ego run wild and think that taking huge drops makes them look cool.  I cannot stress enough how stupid it is to take high drops.

# Not on the net. I Prefer to stay off the grid  ;D.
city: Steubenville during school season.
email: dasher001@student.franciscan.edu
Jam days: Weekends possibly.
Travel: as little as possible, but up to an hour one-way a few times per month. (I might be drivin to Pittsburgh since it's the closest big city)

I haven't started training parkour skills yet. I'm focusing on building up my strength and stamina to the point where I will be maintaining it high in about 6 months. Once I'm in maintenance phase I'll dedicate part of my exercise time to slowly building skill proficiency for parkour. So in a skill sense, I'm an utter neophyte (ancient Greek for noob) in a physical training sense, I have 8 months of focused, whole body, weight-training and intermittent running. I've been working out using different techniques, strategies, and philosophies for years, but now I'm consolidating it all into my training. I've been lookin at parkour for years, but only started making strides towards parkour since May.
