Try Parkour!   

What is Parkour?

Parkour is the art of moving through your environment in a fluid, efficient manner. 

What is PK Silver© ?

An evidence-based program for adults over 50 (no upper age limit with doctor's permission) includes movement games and obstacle courses.  In general, obstacles are at ground level or just above. Nothing is higher than the items you encounter in your own home on an everyday basis. Classes are 1-hour long and run for 8 weeks with a the addition of a short fitness test before and after. 

We train outdoors when possible and teach a blend of parkour,
creative movement and mindfulness for the purpose of falls
prevention and senior fitness. Public classes are listed on our
monthly calendar. Private classes by arrangement and may be unlisted.

A study of PK Silver© was presented by Marymount University researchers at the American College of Sports Medicine 2019 World Summit. This was the first parallel, direct, IRB-study conducted on any parkour program anywhere in the WORLD. The study found PK Silver to safe and beneficial for older adults, 60-80 years old.

Fees vary depending on size of group, equipment needs, number of coaches needed, etc. please call for pricing. We also offer classes to those who move with assistive devices or are non-ambulatory.
