[APK-News]Parkour Is For Everyone

rssIcon.gif Parkour Is For Everyone

This is an article called Jerry's Story. ( It's about a man who was 370lbs, was pre-diabetic, and had very high blood pressure. He wanted to turn his life around, and he went to CrossFit Ranch. ( Over the course of 5 months, Jerry has lost 75lbs and gained a lot of muscle an strength. He's raised his deadlift from 220 to 360, and went from running 25 yards to almost half a mile. He's 43 years old. If a 43 year old, 370 lb. man can

become an exemplary CrossFitter, then we cannot rule any person out

based on age, weight, or any other elitist criteria we may think of.

If Jerry can become an exemplary CrossFitter, then there is no reason that YOU can't train parkour. Everyone has disadvantages that others don't have, it's just a matter of researching and understanding parkour to the point where you realize that parkour is a personal experience. How a 17 year old boy does and how a 62 year old woman trains parkour will be dramatically different, but they will both be performing movements that are challenging for them - just like Jerry was doing workouts that would be a walk in the park for me, but were challenging for him. Everyone should push themselves at their own pace, not at anyone else's.

Make moves, not excuses. - Jesse Danger.
