Hows it goin everyone?
I'm Ben, I live in Connecticut and have been doing parkour for about a year.
I did gymnastics for 10 years along with soccer,track,wrestling and cross country, all of which has helped out my parkour experience. I'm always looking for people in the area to work with and hopefully I can make a video soon.
see ya around!

Hi, the name is Alex. I heard about Parkour during a random Google search for skills related to my work, then decided to dig more after seeing some demonstrations.

This does seem like an enjoyable hobby, but my interest in it is primarily professional. Most of the skills I have seen demonstrated could prove to be a tremendous asset at some point. Looking forward to learning all I can about this, and training hard to make it useful.

Hey all! M' name's Sven and I *just* learned about Free Running and Parkour. I'm really interested and I've been all over the site looking at tutorials ans the workouts, even though all I can do at the moment is the warm-up, half of a WOD and some kinda mediocre wall runs  ;D

Hey people.

I'm Phillip Benitez. I like to go by Ghost, but nobody calls me that.

I did gymnastics for 4 years, so I'm naturally good at a lot of stuff.  :)

Hi everyone :)
My name is Elvira, I live in the netherlands (europe, amsterdam, does it ring a bell? ;))
I'll be going on a school trip to Boston (MA) in 3 weeks so I thought I'd just register here since I've been practicing parkour for about 6 months now, and would like to train while in the US.
Any other questions? Just ask

Greetings one and all,
My name's Kurt.  I'm from Maryland, and just recently (maybe a month ago) heard about Parkour/Free Running through a friend on Facebook.  After that, I've started absorbing all I can about it, which of course led me to this forum.  I mountain and road bike, run, weight train, and have a little background in Kung Fu.  I'm 37, have a bachelors degree in Computer Information Systems, play guitar, and snowboard.  My biggest hobby however is photography, which I've been really into for the past 21 years.  I mostly shoot concerts and am the staff photographer for a local heavy metal promotion company in Carroll County, Maryland.  By day, I'm a Systems/Network/Telecom Administrator for a local military contractor in the field of robotics.  It's become a rather boring job after 10 years, but hey, it pays the bills and when the day's done that's all that really matters.
I've been wanting to get started training in Parkour, so lately I've been scouting out my local area for good spots, though I'm sure I'll have to look elsewhere as it is a small town with only a few good possibilities that I'm aware of.  I'm hoping to make it to some of the Frederick Jams in the near future and possibly some D.C. ones as time and travel allows.
I've got some major printer problems to fix, so I must cut this short.

Kurt

I'm really into parkour (I'm so unique) but i don't like watching the pro's go at it cause it sets a mental standard in my mind after awhile that i can't live up to

Hey, I'm Frank Stasky. I'm 18 and from some suburbs just south of Philadelphia, PA. I've always known about Parkour and Freerunning, but I never knew the name. Once I figured it out, I became obsessed with it. I just started training and I love it.
