UPDATE – Barbarian Workshop Postponed

UPDATE – Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances (and the barbarians getting a baller workshop gig in Moscow), we’ll be postponing the workshop until January 2013. Information and registration will open up again in late December. 

Mark your calendars – The elite bodyweight strength group from NYC, the Bar-barians, will be coming to teach two unique workshops at the Rochester Parkour gym on October 27th.

The Bar-barians are a team of elite bodyweight specialists, founded on the goal of achieving physical perfection while providing the ability to motivate, inspire, train and treat our members and guests with respect and professionalism. Bar-barians was founded in 2004, in Brooklyn, New York.

These workshops will be beneficial to anyone looking to progress their bodyweight strength abilities – either just starting out or working on advanced level techniques.

The first workshop runs from 2-3:30pm with the second running from 4:30-6pm. Each workshop is $55 or $90 to attend both.

Both workshops are limited to 25 participants so reserve your slot early. Head over to our registration site to sign up.
