Pinnacle Parkour Fitness Facility Comes to Cherry Hill
Pinnacle Parkour will open Cherry Hill’s first holistic training facility dedicated to Parkour and Freerunning in August 2013. Pinnacle Parkour Academy, founded in Sicklerville in 2010, was the first Parkour-dedicated facility on the east coast. Parkour is a non-competitive training discipline that pairs fluid body motion with mindful negotiation through Pinnacle's carefully constructed environment of obstacles. Movements include running, climbing, vaulting, swinging, rolling and other motions best suited for the practitioner's situation.
“In my 10-plus years of performance coaching and personal training, I've never implemented a program as impactful as Parkour training,” says Founder Phillip Pirollo. Kids and teens are becoming more active, adults are losing weight and getting stronger; but the best part is everyone is having so much fun,” he remarks.
Movement classes range from Freerun, safely flipping and flowing through the environment, to Parkour Bootcamp, an intense military-style training and conditioning. The facility features Parkour and American Ninja Warrior equipment including the double salmon ladder, scaffolding setup, rock climbing wall, 14-foot foam pit, 16-foot warped wall, and other unique equipment. Participants ages range from 3 years old to adults, and prior Parkour experience is not necessary.
