Hi

I'm a girl who's just getting started in Utah.  A couple of my friends are interested in parkour, but none of us really know where to begin.  Fortunately there's plenty places to practice around here, even if we get the occasional odd look.

If anyone has tips on exercises to try or events in the area, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks,

FuzzyLogic

@FuzzyLogic

Two things, this is probably really Cliche, but any chance you are mormon?

Also there is a video that really helped me with rolls, if you need help with that :P

Hello, I'm Tyler
I live in Sacramento, Ca and I'm looking for a better way to learn parkour. I'm still new to parkour, so if there are any traceurs in the 916 area, I could sure use some hands-on teaching

Hey folks of American Parkour,
I've been running for a couple of years now in the Albany New York area.  I love that parkour is about challenging and bettering yourself.  It excites me that there are always new obstacles and, with enough hard work, those obstacles can be overcome.  I'm happy to be getting hooked up with this tight and encouraging community.

I'm from midwest USA. I haven't done much pk since I put out $200+ fixing a friends truck I broke when trying to jump into the back... but My parents gave me some martial arts shoes for Christmas (Which I'll be using for parkour and such) so I'll be getting back into it. I can do most of the basic vaults, I've tried some flips but I'm not too sure my body type is any good for that. (football players and wrestlers always wanted me to join the team in highschool) I'm ~5'11 and ~215lbs, but in solid shape, ran a 5k a couple weeks ago, came 8/14 in age group [18-24] (time was 20 something mins, idk) with no training. So I'm in good enough shape to do most of this, but flips will come hard if at all. I'm not interested in jumping off roofs, or much of anything I think could permanently hurt me, but this is just a hobby to keep me in shape and give me some reason to exercise so it's no biggie. Have a great day and God Bless.


ps: (Am I allowed to say that last sentence? [religion and such] If I'm not, my apologies, tell me so and I'll try to remember to leave it out of my posts, but it is a bit of a habit)
