Train Hard - Stay Humble

Bay Area People Should Check Out Seattle

I've been in Seattle for two weeks and it has rained literally every day.  However, there were some partly sunny patches in which I got some fun stuff done.  There are several great training spots including Freeway Park and Gasworks Park where you will not get bothered at all.



The downside to these places is that they are probably wet and grimy and inhabited by homeless people.


One of the coolest things I found was a FREE outdoor rock wall and bouldering spot. They only ask that you don't kill yourself. I went there a couple times and on a day that no one else was there it made for a good spot to practice safety rolls.


Airfare was only $140 round trip, so if you've got a few extra bucks and want to check out a cool town with completely vacant training grounds then go to Seattle.  The weather would definitely make me go insane if I lived there, but it is a cool place to visit.

Our trip to the PK Visions summit was very brief- up on Friday, back on Sunday. We checked out Gasworks and Freeway Park with the attendees but missed out on Volunteer Park (trees!). Definitely some great spots. Didn't know about that rock wall- looks sweet. PKV has a list of outdoor class locations which should be helpful to anyone making the trip.

Yeah we went for the summit.

 

we learned in the morning till noon then we were out jamming at these spots.

 

Freeway park is the best.  Nobody bothers you and there is something for everyone. Concrete awesomness.

 

I didnt like gasworks as much.  Either super slow or really advanced movements.  interesting though. Most epic for the lava tag.

 

The "gym" is also pretty sweet but not in a traditional gym way.  No mats, no pads, no cushionyness, just a solid place with solid obstacles and solid coaches where you can learn and train in the rain.

Thanks for the pointers!

Yes, I would definitely check out Seattle in dryer months (if there's such thing), from what I remember of Vancouver (which is just across the border).

A small group went checking out the good job done by the guys at Parkour Visions, but I don't know how much time they had for exploring...

 

Any chance you could list the spots you trained at? Something that can be looked up and mapped easily? That would be great...

 

Also some of these pictures are totally gallery-worthy!
