Got your Parkour on?

imageI was first introduced to “Parkour” in the movie “Casino Royale”. A great scene at the outset of the movie with Daniel Craig chasing a pioneer of Parkour and “free running”, Sebastian Foucan.
The word comes from the French “parcours”, which literally means, “the way through”, or “the path”. What we now all know as “Parkour” with a “k” had its origins in a training program for French Special Forces known as “Parcours du combattant”, or “The Path of the Warrior”.
I have introduced this into my trail running and it is a lot of fun and I really get to use my mind as well in making quick decisions as to what step or hand placement do I use next? There is a facility in Seattle that teaches Parkour. I don’t know anything about them at all other than they state that they are a Parkour facility, but I think it is great that different forms of moment are being taught and that some day will will be doing more movement training and less “machine” training! #thetrainer #Insideoutfitness #parkour #personaltrainer #functionaltraining #hoodriver #insideoutfitnesshoodriver #ultramarathon #fitness #functionaltrainer #health #running #fitnessaddict #workout #cardio #train #training #healthy #parkour #freerunning #healthychoices #active #strong #motivation #determination #lifestyle #getfit #cleaneating #eatclean #exercise
