Parkour is widely accepted as a method of training for the safest, quickest, and most efficient routing from one point to another. Practitioners, known as traceurs, train in order to be as fluid, functional and liberated as possible in physical movement and to overcome physical obstacles. At Superior Gymnastics, our Parkour classes consist of two major components:
- Conditioning – The majority of practitioners use calisthenics as a method of conditioning. Push-ups, pull-ups, running, squats, handstands, plyometrics, and quadrupedal movements are examples of the calisthenics practiced.
- Drilling – Athletes use drills to develop power, endurance, strength, agility, and control.
