Here at The Training Room, we are happy to announce an industry-first partnership with the world’s largest professional freerunning organisation.
We have teamed up with Parkour Generations to become the UK’s first fitness training provider to partner with a Parkour expert, working together to offer the ground-breaking internationally recognised Parkour Fitness Specialist programme to fitness enthusiasts in the UK.
Known in the industry as ‘Parkour’, freerunning has been made popular by chases in action films such as Casino Royale and The Bourne Ultimatum, and focuses on developing the fundamental attributes required for movement, including balance, strength and endurance.
The four day certified course is being delivered by Parkour experts and is open to anybody who has an interest in fitness, with no previous experience required. It also offers a great development opportunity for qualified personal trainers who are looking to up-skill.
Upon completion, students will have earned an industry recognised Parkour UK CYQ Level 2 qualification in instructing Parkour/freerunning fitness training (QCF), adding a whole new dimension to their fitness skills.
Speaking ahead of the launch, Lucy Birch, head of training here at The Training Room, said: “This partnership marks a huge milestone for The Training Room and we are extremely excited and proud to be the first UK training provider to collaborate with an industry leader in Parkour.
“Freerunning is a very modern and fast-paced sport and is really taking off at the moment. We’re looking forward to seeing people with a passion for fitness try out something completely unique, and the classes are guaranteed to challenge students and push them to the next level.”
Dan Edwardes, founder and director of Parkour Generations, said: “Parkour can be one of the most natural ways to develop functional fitness and movement skills, and is a discipline that works fantastically in helping people to realise just how much their bodies are capable of.
“The course has already proven to have great appeal with industry professionals globally as they look for ways to advance in their personal training careers, but would be equally rewarding for anybody who enjoys keeping fit. We’re really looking forward to working with The Training Room and showing students all that Parkour has to offer.”
