I don't know any spots to train in Bloomington, but maybe since you are going out that way, you could scout some?  I think Terminal C has some promise at MSP, but I've never really been dressed in suitable attire at the airport, and I'm really not very fond of the Transportation Safety Administrator. 
See if you can find more than playsets and parking ramps. 
The only thing I've found in Plymouth is an auditorium.

I would HIGHLY recommend staying away from the airport.  We get enough trouble with cops thinking we're doing suspicious behavior in normal places.  Take that to a place where they think EVERYONE is suspicious and you're in for a bad time. 

Start with local parks and playgrounds, find any school's campus around, explore and happen upon a gem that no one would ever expect.  I don't know any places so it's up to you!  Let us know if you find anything awesome

I no this is a old post but I just started getting into Parkour and was looking for some guys around me to train with, the names Matt and I'm 23 and i live in bloomington (Thats why i am posting here). Everything about Parkour is new to me, but if you want to meet up somewhere around the city hit me up on here. And i will be joining Fight or flight next months...but it is free to do it out side

Make it to the Saturday and Sunday parts of the jam, then, and ask there.
