Strength and Conditioning
Strength and Conditioning has been a cultural fixture for Newcastle parkour for 15 years.
"To be strong to be useful. To be and to last" is a very important part of our philosophy stemming from the birth of Parkour in France over 30 years ago. With the founders of the sport still training like this into their 50's.
Thursday Strength and Conditioning
This class runs from 6:20 - 7:50 and is a throwback to our old school strength in the park.
We start with 10 minutes of cardio followed by 15 -20 minutes of arm sets, leg sets and core. This is our biggest strength and also the most diverse with our comp team kids, instructors and adults all working together.
45 Minute strength
This is our new addition to the timetable with multiple sessions a week. With less of a focus on cardio and more on strength building the 45 minutes is normally a challenge set. with a series of things to try and complete in under the time limit.
We always have multiple levels of difficulty so the people who want to really push are able to. And those who are working on their foundational fitness can work to a level they feel comfortable with.
A high priority is that everyone feels welcome and safe. We care about how much effort you put in, not how strong / fast / agile you are.
We are in the business of developing strong, resilient people, both physically and mentally.
