Parkour is a training discipline using movements that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners train to increase their ability to move through space by overcoming challenging obstacles.

Parkour develops body awareness, spacial reasoning, strength and power, flexibility and mobility, creativity, and the joy of movement!

American Parkour academy

Primal Fitness is the host of the American Parkour Academy, the world's first purpose-built parkour training center. We strive to improve people’s lives by promoting, teaching, and advancing the discipline of parkour!

APK Academy was opened in 2006 as the world's first parkour gym, and has since helped thousands of people, kids and adults alike, to discover their ability to move and grow!
