Walking is continually being replaced by more artistic modes of travel, including parkour, freerunning, and greasing up heels with oil paint before sliding to work. Express yourself through movement with this Groupon.
$12 for One Freerunning and Parkour Class ($25 Value)
Parkour and freerunning inspire fast-paced fitness classes that gradually progress from beginner techniques to advanced acrobatics.
Tempest Freerunning Academy
Designed by the pro freerunners of Team Tempest and by X-Games ramp builder Nate Wessel, Tempest Freerunning Academy houses more than 7,000 square feet of parkour and freerunning obstacles. Freerunning distills parkour, a physical endeavor that consists of running and jumping as a means of moving from spot to spot efficiently, into combos of acrobatic moves choreographed to please the eye and give gravity a self-confidence complex. A staff of professional freerunners facilitates athleticism in classes that gradually progress from Parkour 101, which focuses on building strength and balance, to the invite-only Trü Freedom, which emphasizes flowing safely through creative maneuvers.
The colorful indoor facility emulates a playground with a 10'x14' Aussie Bed trampoline and a six-foot-deep pit of foam. Budding athletes vault from a spongy gymnastics floor like Olympians piggybacking on kangaroos toward 32-foot ceilings or scale a 14-foot warped wall before the eyes of seated spectators.
