It would be nice if any brand-new-kid-on-the-block (only absolute beginners, without previous experience training parkour, or at least training with others...) would want to tell us about their first day impressions here. Thanks, BAPK

Hi Maria!
Take a look at the complete starter kit, it should give you an idea of what to expect and how to prepare best.
Also, it will make more sense of any suggestion you may get from other practitioners...

Hey, so I'm new to parkour and really can't do anything yet. I want to build up some more strength and endurance before I get seriously into parkour and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for cross training sports (besides running) or anything else that would help build up the right muscles.

@ jarryd:
...most definitely check out the Australian PK Association website at: www.parkour.asn.au

Also, you can contact Xavier or Argie, who have been with us from the beginning, and are more familiar with your geographic area.

Also check out this guide, which could come handy...

Excellent idea!
Climbers train that way.

Would anyone like the idea of a silent training session? Where the focus is all on the movement and you talk only about the technique and for help. I would love to make this a regular thing, just imagining it, the discipline and amount of focused practice that would be done.

i trained alone and almost ended up with a concussion...personally i think its really unintelligent unless you are working on grass doing things like handstands, handsprings, rolls, what not. If you are going to work some rails, ledges, and train on concrete in general get a friend to watch
