Gym Update: Henry, Flips, Party
New Team Member
Parkour Horizons has a new team member! Henry McNabb joined the staff and will be working mainly in the children’s classes. Henry is 22 years old, says his favorite move is the lazy vault, and along with parkour enjoys rock climbing and backpacking. In fact, for three weeks in March he’ll be backpacking through Patagonia in Chile!
Last Week’s Theme: Wall Runs
We successfully finished our week of wall runs and its variations! A wall run is used to reach the top of high obstacles. It also has many interesting and challenging variations depending on the application. So this week we learned the basic wall run, wall run to cat hang, the tic tac, and many more. As always, if you need more help on these techniques, our nightly open gyms are a great time to work on them.
There is a new addition at the gym—we now have a foam pit! And just in time for our freerunning workshop. Are you interested in learning a backflip? Freerunning is parkour with flips and tricks. We will be conducting a workshop on February 27th! It will take place from 11 AM to 2 PM and will be instructed by Wenxin Yang, an American Parkour sponsored athlete certified in freerunning. The cost is $49, limited to ages 12+, and we only have 15 spots! Ask a staff member for details and to reserve your spot before they run out. Gold members, you get a 10% discount, and anyone bringing 2 or more guests gets 10% off too!
Our Gym is Turning One Year Old — Birthday Party!
Parkour Horizons’s one year anniversary is coming up on March 16th! To celebrate, we’re having a party on March 12th with pizza, a movie, and open gym. If any of these sound appealing to you, come on out and party with us! Admission is $9, but members get in free!
Grab Your Parkour Gear While It’s Here!
We have just put in a new order of our awesome tee shirts. They’ll be in Thursday or Friday, both youth sizes S-L and adult sizes S-XXL. Also in gym store news, we still have 3 pairs of our Etre Fort parkour pants left in stock. Be sure to get yours before they’re gone!
