“It was a warm, summer’s evening in East London and, as the sun set over the city, an eclectic group of sportswear-clad urbanites gathered in an old warehouse. You might be thinking this doesn’t sound unusual in our modern, metrosexual society. But this wasn’t a Yogalates or Bikram yoga session; we were visiting Parkour Generations at The Chainstore Parkour Academy to find out how the freestyle movement discipline can help us keep fit in the off-season and improve our time on the mountain.”
