Welcome to 2018
So we realise that we’re a little late behind here, with it being the start of February, but we were very busy last month getting everything back up and running again after a few weeks off over christmas. Here we have our January update for you all with some important announcements to make!
New Year, New Website
As some of you may have noticed, our website has been a “little” out of date for months now and we would like to apologise for the delay in getting it sorted. Tom has been working tirelessly these last couple of months to put together this shiny, brand new website for you all to browse through!
Our class timetable is back up to date with all of our current classes, prices and locations and you should definitely go and check that out!
We have also added pages with information about parkour as sport and the many benefits of taking part. If you have any family, friends, enemies or pets that haven’t tried parkour yet, get them to have a look through our page: what is parkour?
All of our new classes for 2018 that have already started up are listed on our class timetable page. However, we do have some more classes lined up to begin from 26th February in Glossop and will be taking over our Monday nights with brand new equipment!
These classes booked up within a couple of hours of annoncement but keep you eyes on our Facebook Page Project Z Parkour Training for updates on places that may become available.
New Qualified Coaches
Last October Smithy and Isaac went on a quest to Leeds and were told not to return until they had completed their level 1 parkour coaching course with Parkour UK. They both came back having passed with flying colours and now, after doing some supervised coaching hours with Tom, they have both received their certificates and are ready to take a more active role in coaching classes with Project Z Parkour. We would also like to give a shout out and congratulations to one of our pupils (Ben) who went and aced the course along with Smithy and Isaac. Ben just has another couple of hours of supervised coaching to do before he receives his certificate but that isn’t going to take him long! Well done lads!
New Pricing at Burrs Country Park
We have made the official announcement on Facebook already but we would like to remind everyone that attends our parkour classes at Burrs Country Park on Sundays 1pm – 2pm that the pricing for these classes are set to change as of 1st February 2018. Now that Smithy and Isaac have received their coaching qualifications we can no longer get away with using them for free labour.
The single class price will be changing to £8 per class. We will also be introducing a monthly price of £20 per calender month for those regulars who are looking to save some money. The price change is to cover the wages of 3 qualified coaches running the classes. This is the only class we offer at this time that has 3 coaches available every week to offer our pupils as much support as they need, and it really shows in the progress made by all who attend!
See you all on Sunday!
See What Our Team Gets Up To!
Away from our weekly classes, our team of coaches and athletes are constantly training to improve their own parkour skills. Check out our various social media platforms to keep up to date with what our team gets up to in their spare time!
Our Youtube channel was pretty inactive for most of last year, but towards the end our team got their act together and started releasing more quality content for our channel.
Check out Tom’s 2017 Showreel of all his favourite moments from the last year!
Also, check out Smithy’s “This Is Life” vlog series to see what an average day training with the team looks like!
Similar to our Youtube channel, we were pretty lazy with our instagram game last year. After a huge hard drive clean out, we found over 100 unused instagram edits so we’re uploading 3 new posts per day until the content runs out (while still filming everything we do) so get yourselves over the our instagram page to see what we’ve been hiding from you all of last year!
