As Teens turn into adults, it's vital for them to build real, practical strength. This point in their musculoskeletal development is when building strength is most important, and at Outrun, they'll have a blast doing it!
Teens grow rapidly, and as that happens, it's normal for their muscles to tighten. At Outrun Parkour, we've found that because we make flexibility an accessible, built in part of our program, they make dramatic gains in flexibility, carrying that improved quality of life into adulthood.
It's well known that teens can be clumsy or have challenges with proprioception (awareness of their body in space) as they're not used to their growing bodies, but it doesn't have to be that way! At Outrun, they'll Increase balance, awareness and precision, quickly tuning into their bodies and environment!
If it feels like your Teen's focus is all over the place, you're not alone - Teen brain development often means a perceived lack of focus. What most Teens need is to practice focusing on something they love, and at Outrun Parkour they'll do just that. They'll come away from each class with more and more focus, ultimately gaining focus at will, and they'll benefit from it for life.
Teens are dealing with a lot, finding solid peer groups, understanding who they are and learning their strengths. At this age, they're deciding how they'll respond to challenges on an emotional level. Will they give up when things get tough? Or will they push through, accomplishing what they set their mind to? At Outrun, they'll practice the skill of determination in every class, building determination step by step until it's an ingrained part of their personality.
Teens are constantly bombarded by mental and emotional challenges that chip away at their confidence, especially with today's aggressive technological and social landscape. It's vital for Teens to build rock-solid self confidence, but that won't happen without putting in the work. At Outrun, they'll learn to overcome mental, physical and emotional obstacles, building real confidence and determination along the way - and they'll take that deep, unshakeable confidence with them everywhere they go.
It's not just Teens that love Outrun Parkour. Once they see the teen classes parents love it because it offers things that normal teen activities don’t.
Outrun Parkour class times were designed with feedback from our families - we’ve discovered teens prefer evening and weekend times for the best training results.
Your teen will be in a positive environment, surrounded by peers striving towards the same goals that are. They'll build friendships and be supported in their journey every step of the way.
There's literally no better place for Teens to learn life skills like Persistence, Determination and Empathy. They'll listen and learn from role-model instructors, and they'll love it!
It's more than awesome moves - it's proprioception, balance, agility and more - physical traits that will remain with and benefit your teen for the rest of their lives.
Teens need activities that are engaging and awesome. They *have* to be cooler than video games, TV, phones and other screen oriented activities that simply aren't beneficial. Teen Parkour is exactly what they need and want- here's why:
Teenagers will see their strength building after only a few weeks. They love to see their strength grow in real time, working each day on becoming the strongest version of themselves.
It doesn't matter if your teenager already thinks they're on their “A-Game” or if their physical prowess is seriously lacking. Once they get into class, they see the real potential for athleticism through parkour. They’ll build real connections from their mind to their body, and the results are amazing.
Many teens are looking for a place to fit in. Something they can identify with that’s healthy and that they can be proud of. Outrun is a place where teens find themselves and a connection with the peers in a sport they love!
Parkour teachers because we love what we do! We gamify challenges and events so they feel know they are leveling-up!. Being around mentors who are playing the same sport and game as you is an experience they will love!
Of American children are obese or are at risk for obesity
To help fight and prevent health issues, we need to move! The reality though is that our lives often aren't set up for movement. With 7+ hour seated school days and busy parent work schedules, it's tough to keep modern kids healthy
Lead sedentary lives
It's too easy for teens to become sedentary and carry that into adulthood. The healthy habits learned at Outrun Parkour can benefit teens for life, and can fight the seemingly inevitable march towards adult onset health issues
Almost half of Adults are sedentary
More and more it seems inevitable that as teens grow into adults, they slow down and become unhealthy. It doesn't have to be this way, but we have to create healthy movement habits before it's too late.
Our goals for our Outrun Parkour students are the same as your goals as a parent. Confidence, Self-Esteem, and Healthy Habits for life!

My son has been attending classes here since its humble beginnings. I cannot stress enough the impact that the gym has had on our son through the years. A shout out to coach Michael in particular who has pushed our son to work harder and motivated him in ways that we never could. He’s truly an excellent coach & mentor and our son has found his passion for fitness and parkour. The new gym looks very cool and is an awesome upgrade!
Our son has been taking classes and visiting open gym every week for over a year and he absolutely LOVES it. We've tried introducing him to a lot of different activities over the years to limited success, but Parkour resonates strongly with him.
I give a lot of credit to the entire team at OUTRUN. The owners and instructors are passionate and INCREDIBLY supportive of the students (as is the larger community of parents!) Our family really appreciates the welcoming and inclusive atmosphere we always encounter.
