Time To Stop Deteriorating

I started this blog for probably the wrong reasons. I started it for not myself first, but rather for others. I wanted fame and acknowledgement and tons of traffic. I wanted daily comments and people subscribing and following whatever it was I was talking about. That lasted for a while. I think I got up to around 40 or so posts.

I have made a decision to start again. This time around, I am doing it for myself. I am using my blog as a way to track my own progress and let me reflect on the things that I am doing. I will still write tips when I find them or think of them, and I will write my little blurbs about fitness, but will focus mostly on the things that I am doing. If it helps people along the way then great, I always want to help.

I have done a lot of research on my new fitness ideas, and plan on doing a lot more in the next forever. I am going to start doing parkour. Parkour is basically moving through your environment, any environment, in the quickest possible way. One of the most well known displays of this was during the opening chase scene in Casino Royale. It depicts a person, think its Sebastian Foucan, running through a construction site.

This will be my first venture into anything like this and I hope it goes well. Let me know if you have or want to do anything like parkour.

Great to see someone wanting to take themselves, and their fitness, seriously. Parkour is a GREAT way to get into shape.

I'd recommend you check out It's a great place to get started, there's lots of tutorials and articles there to help you understand parkour better. There's also a huge community that is always more than willing to help a new person get started.

Where are you from (Not in a creepy way though... :p)? Chances are, I can probably connect you with some local traceurs to train with.

Keep blogging. It's a great thing to do for yourself, even if it's as simple as a workout log. I'll try to check back in every so often.

Check out my training blog, Shoot me an email if I can do anything to help you out!
