Hello Everyone..

I am a new member to this site, so here's a little info about me.

I enjoy running, boxing & weight training however running on straight roads & up hills became boring for me so I always looked for obstacles to run around, on top of & through whenever I went for a run. But I'd never heard of Parkour or freerunning.

I have always enjoyed the idea of military training & love watching documentaries/films about it. One time I read a really interesting book about the training a bunch of UK surveillance operators did using their physical bodies & mind to overcome obstacles around them, & how they improvised & adapted to their environment.

I also love movies like "Underworld" where you have guys & gals jumping & pouncing off buildings - no secret, that just happens to be one of my favorite movies. Then there's that training session in "Empire Strikes Back" where Luke does a flip & single arm handstand while Yoda's sitting on his shoulder & I always wanted to do stuff like that.

In back of my mind I was looking for something more powerful, challenging & interesting to experience over the past few months & I came across an article about Parkour just yesterday - talk about perfect.

My idea of fun with an Ipod on the go!

Just had to express my excitement..

Hello! I thought it was time I made another appearance, seeing as the only person who has replied in this thread is mister joseph (who is most certainly male) :P Nice to see another girl around... Where are you from? And how old are you? I'm only 14, but I've been training to some extent for just over a year now, and I'm loving parkour, but not loving the boy:girl ratio so much!

Train hard

Hey Hollie..

I'm 23.. right now I'm in Australia..
I hadn't noticed your message..so I'm abit late responding..it's good to hear other girls getting into Parkour.

I don't think it's quite my first week since I found out about it & I love it!
Sorry about the late response..I haven't been browsing much as I've been busy alot & just come in to check the post I had up about training.

Anyways, thanx for posting & take care..
