Help Us Grow

There is a new page under “The Gym” tab in the menu. This tab, labeled “Gym Planning,” is a page to educate you on what new projects, small and large, RocPK is working on to make the gym as amazing as it possibly could be. Some projects can be completed tomorrow while others are long term. You can find this page here.

Please take some time to look over what we are working on. If you can, consider making a small donation to our efforts so that we can begin work as soon as possible. Every donation is put straight towards these projects, not operation costs (which is covered by memberships).

Remember, Rochester Parkour is a community organization with a dedication not only to the members, but to Rochester as a whole. A donation will help us expand our outreach to educate and inspire more at-risk youth and young adults.

Kids Class Time Change!

Important!

A couple parents have made it known that 5pm works best to ensure their kids make it to the class on time. Because of this, the kids class has now moved to 5pm-6pm. This change has been reflected on the calendar widget.

Sorry for the change!

Membership Discount this Week

Hey gang,

We had a blast at the opening and despite some last minute setbacks, were still able to open in April! Some people have been asking about a discount on the monthly membership for the lost two weeks, so we’ve decided to give a discount good through this week!

Sign up for any monthly membership by Friday, April 22 and get the month of May half off. That means you could get a student open gym pass next month for just $15!

In regards to the inquiries about payment options, I’m busy trying to set up an online bill pay service, but until that gets off the ground, you’ll need to show up to the gym with cash or check.

Check out the Hours of Operation page at the top menu for business hours! See you there!

Parkour Gym Grand Opening Success!

Wow, what a day!

It was a joy to see the hours of hard work myself and numerous other members of the community spent pay off. All in all, we had over 80 people show up to the grand opening! Mark’s Pizzeria donated 360 slices of pizza, Nicole made over 60 cookies, Dave Rapp made a large batch of brownies and after everything was said and done, I think we only had one sheet of pizza left!

All around people of all ages were playing and exploring. We had everyone from ages 5-60 show up! Rochester Parkour is growing and expanding, and you should all feel proud to be that driving force behind it. None of this would have happened without you.

I’d also like to thank the traveling traceurs that came out to join us from Buffalo Parkour. Definitely was good to see you guys again and hope to see you more in the next couple months. Buffalo is planning a Monkey Vault trip in May so mark off time on your calendars RocPK!

Hope to see you all having fun again in and out of the gym this week!
