Performance Lead

Alex started Parkour in 2006, after seeing Sebastien Foucan’s infamous chase sequence at the beginning of Casino Royale. Still in school at the time, aged only 15, Alex leapt (excuse the pun) at a chance to funnel his considerable energy into something new and went to his first Parkour Generations Academy class 2 days later.

With a background in several martial arts, rugby and basketball, he was ill-prepared for the life-changing developments and opportunities that this experience would bring. Needless to say, he was hooked from the outset.

Alex has since competed successfully in athletics and weightlifting, is ADAPT qualified and currently a member of our Performance Team. To those around him, Alex is a constant reminder that you need not be gifted or lucky to achieve anything; all you need is the will to succeed.
