Parkour Fitness Specialist – new UK course dates
UK dates for the 2016 Parkour Fitness Specialist courses have now been released.
The courses take place on two consecutive weekends in April, June and August in our Chainstore Parkour Academy in Trinity Buoy Wharf, London, and are largely aimed at professional fitness instructors. This course brings the holistic training approach used by parkour practitioners into the world of fitness and presents a new (yet very old) way of understanding how the human body is best developed, refined and improved for adaptive movement across any terrain.
This CYQ level 2 qualification is entry level. It is intended to act as an introduction to the core concepts of functional movement, applicable strength and task-oriented training. You will learn the core functional drills and training protocols that support them, how to integrate these drills into your training paradigm and how to begin programming for your clients.
The certification also covers advanced progressions of the Core Functional Exercises, focusing on redefining what we mean by ‘agility’, healthy linear and non-linear mobility patterns, spatial awareness exercises and the importance of adaptability and avoiding routine. The course also has a strong emphasis on the importance of integrating mind and body for healthy movement and how to achieve this in group and solo training sessions.
