Parkour Fitness Specialist Joins ADAPT On Tour in Australia
As you may be aware, this coming October, we begin our first tour, and nowhere better to start than Perth, Australia. We are now proud to announce, as well as our famous Coach Certs, we will be hosting the Parkour Fitness Specialist Level 1 Certification made popular by Parkour Generations.
Parkour Fitness Specialist Certs are a training and certification programme based around the practical strength, fitness and mobility elements of the groundbreaking and dynamic discipline of parkour.
Accredited by NASM and ACE in the USA and by YMCA Awards in Europe, Parkour Fitness Specialist Certs are the product of years of research and exploration into practical movement systems by the pioneers and principal developers of parkour.
Parkour training has been seen to develop incredible levels of strength, speed, agility, mobility and power in its practitioners, and now the fundamental principles of that training can be found in the Parkour Fitness Specialist programme.
Parkour Fitness has a task-oriented approach to fitness training, requiring constant adaptation and application by the individual, and is centred around a holistic approach to multi-planar mobility, body sensitivity, functional strength, agility and spatial awareness. The Level 1-3 Parkour Fitness Specialist certification courses provide an insight into these fundamental concepts and constant exposure to the practice that surrounds them and present a new yet very old way of understanding how the human body is best developed, refined and improved for movement in any environment. The courses condense the agility, mobility and practical strength concepts of parkour into a training paradigm that fitness professionals can then apply within their own training programmes. Completion of the Parkour Fitness Specialist courses certifies the candidate to deliver the Parkour Fitness concepts within a physical training environment.
Upon completion of the Parkour Fitness Specialist Level 1 and Level 2 Certifications, instructors can then progress upon continuing professional development paths by attending single day development courses to further their knowledge and skills within functional fitness training. The development courses are:
- Parkour Fitness: Quadrupedal Specialist
- Parkour Fitness: Vault Specialist
- Parkour Fitness: Jump Specialist
- Parkour Fitness: Bar-Work Specialist
- Parkour Fitness: Agility Specialist
The Level 3 Certification is a Personal Trainer qualification and demands true expertise in functional fitness, physical training and instructing.
