Npk Training Sessions.
Parkour Nottingham has been the leading community in the city since 2005, organising training days, meetings, events and helping to direct and teach new and young athletes in the right way.
The community in Nottingham is varied, the age group engaging in the discipline ranges from around 13-30, though the majority of practitioners are in their teens and early twenties. There is a real sense of camaraderie in training at the weekly jams, everyone is friendly and welcoming and willing to help anyone to develop their skills.
Ask any of the regulars and they’ll tell you that respect is given to those who put in effort, try hard and who are dedicated more so than anyone who is naturally gifted or is a part timer.
We do ask that people are the age of 13 or above to join practising with us. The reason for this is you need a mature mental attitude and understanding of how to train and use the body without being too risky. You should be responsible for your own actions, your safety and the ones around you. You have to be able to get yourself to and from town on your own as the main group does split from time to time into smaller groups.
The weekly training sessions are on average from 1pm onwards. Most people finish training at 5pm although some finish earlier, free to come and go as you please.
Please be aware that when the weather is bad or unpredictable less people will attend the training sessions in extreme weather conditions. The group fluctuates from week to week and we take no responsibility for sessions being cancelled or people do not attend the prearranged meetings/events.
If you want to be fully up to date with all the events and what is going off in the community then please keep an eye on the Parkour Nottingham Facebook.
Hell Night Workout Session. (Thursday Evenings).
Meet up: Robin Hood Statue. (http://tinyurl.com/Npkmaps)
These sessions are hosted by James and in basic form are a heavy duty full body conditioning workout session, using Parkour type moves and exercises to help build stamina and help gain strength.
It is highly recommended to come to one of these sessions if you want to get help get ahead of the rest in your Parkour fitness or if you just want a workout with something a little different then the gym.
These sessions are pretty hardcore and are not for the ones who do not like conditioning and hard work. Saying this when you have attended a few your strength will really increase and you will see and feel the difference.
