After hearing this news we thought it’d be a good time to point out the benefits of cross training. In fact, most of the TF Team excels in other sports too and it’s no wonder because diverse training is a great way to learn about your abilities and push your limits while training in other areas. A few other examples from the Take Flight Street Team:
Ruslan Dzhavadov practiced Taekwondo.
Nikolay Stasolik practiced breakdancing and bouldering.
Trevor de Groot played hockey and soccer growing up.
Having knowledge of your limits and capabilities is a cornerstone of Parkour. Playing sports, dancing, and martial arts all require you to learn new kinds of movement which make them great cross training sports. By doing these you explore the capabilities of your body in new environments, new situations, and with new obstacles. These other aspects of movement will also help you improve your overall fitness, give you a better understanding of yourself, as well as help you hone your personal style and training/movement focus.
Even though Parkour will always be #1 on our list, mixing other sports in addition Parkour training is a-OK with us. In fact we encourage it. Be like members of the Take Flight Team and integrate your sport of choice into your exercise regime, and see where it takes you.
