Discover Fitness Parkour with Wellnex!

Parkour is a training discipline where practitioners (called traceurs) move from one place to another in a complex environment, without assisting equipment.

They must go the fastest and the most efficient way possible.






With roots in military obstacle course training and martial arts, parkour includes:

  1. Running,

  2. Climbing,

  3. Swinging,

  4. Vaulting,

  5. Jumping,

  6. Plyometrics,

  7. Rolling, and

  8. Quadrupedal movement

Parkour is an activity that can be practiced alone or with others, and is usually carried out in urban spaces, though it can be done anywhere.

Parkour as a type of movement was established by David Belle in France in 1988.

Parkour exercises often focus on compound, functional (e.g. pertaining to real-life situations) movements.



The top Ten Health Benefits of Parkour are:

  • Parkour is a full body workout.

  • Improved Cardiovascular endurance.

  • Increased Bone Strength.

What muscles are used in parkour?

Parkour exercises will develop your back, shoulders, and arms, the muscles that are most engaged during your parkour training sessions. Balance your musculature -- While the "pulling" muscles are the most important for parkour, you can't neglect your "pushing" muscles (chest and triceps).
