Tomb Raider Meets Parkour!

Tomb Raider Meets Parkour!

Yesterday we collaborated with the guys behind the new Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander to put a group of brave YouTubers through their paces at our London Chainstore Gym as part of the big build up to the release of the film later this month.Ā 

The new film has Lara Croft growing up and learning her skills in East London – the location, coincidentally (or is it??), of our legendary Academy, so it made perfect sense that anyone wanting toĀ #BeLikeLara would have to step into the Chainstore Gym to master her full-on skills of running, jumping, climbing, swinging and generally mastering her environment.Ā 

The young hopefuls spent several hours under the guidance of Dan Edwardes, learning the ropes (quite literally in some cases) and building movement skills before being put to the test in a final obstacle route survival challenge.Ā 

How did they do..? Keep an eye on our social media challenges over the next few days to find out!
