CURIOSITY & CURRICULUM

Our guided youth programs and after school activities focus on reinforcing children’s natural curiosity for movement and desire for achievement through the foundations of Parkour.

ROAM Active features a coach-ledorganic curriculum with an adaptive teaching style and class structure. Classes shift between social-focused training where students participate in progressing new skills together, and individual training where we encourage them to focus on skills of their specific interest with the advice and guidance of the coach.

We maintain a constant level of activity throughout class, minimizing downtime by replacing passive lines with active waiting. Students move freely within a set area as the coach rotates between and interacts with each student on an individual level.

PARKOUR

Parkour is an artform and discipline that teaches us how to use our bodies to better move through and interact with the world around us.

It’s both an alternative to traditional athletics and an addition to them in the form of cross-training and off-season movement development. Its attention to kinesthesis, proprioception, and environmental & skill variety make it an unparalleled tool for physical intervention, muscle development, and spatial assessment & awareness.

An athletic pursuit for anyone of any ability, Parkour refines strength, balance, and body awareness—while also increasing movement fluidity and confidence—regardless of how much or how little a student begins with.

Movement is a 
body language everyone understands, and Parkour teaches us how to best speak and interpret it.

SKILLS & PROGRESSION

All youth programs are structured around skill-based movement development. We begin with fundamentals achievable by all ages, slowly expand complexity and difficulty, and add in new skill-sets over time.

We offer a variety of programs for differing skill and interest levels. From our core classes, camps, and after school activities–to our invitation-based Focus sessions, there’s something for students both new to Parkour and those already well into the discipline.

RISK ASSESSMENT & SELF-CONFIDENCE

Parkour teaches a student to understand how their body and their movement relates to their environment. It’s a discipline of constant variety–both in the movements that are practiced and the environmental situations that the movements are used in.

This variety increases a student’s ability to assess risk and take responsibility for the risks they take. They’ll learn to recognize their own level of physical ability, skill-set density, and self-confidence.

Choices they make become founded on this self-assessment–imparted by the skills they learn and the reinforcement of their coaches. This character development influences thought process even outside of a Parkour setting–we speak from our own experience, having practiced and taught Parkour for close to two decades.

INDIVIDUALIZE & SPECIALIZE

As a student explores the breadth of Parkour skill-sets, they’ll find natural paths of interest and specialization. We encourage this individual focus and the personal styles of movement that arise from it.

Some students gravitate towards acrobatics, some climbing, some jumping, the list is quite literally endless.

Parkour has no skill ceiling. It’s a fluid, innovative, and accepting discipline. Athletes are constantly developing new movements and skill-sets—and adding unique twists or new refinements to old ones. Once a student understands the fundamental movements and underlying principles, Parkour’s creative aspects begin to shine.

Everyone has an interest. Everyone has a specialty. Everyone carries with them a unique self. We love cultivating that mindset in our students, their families, and everyone part of the ROAMFurther community.

COMMUNITY & COOPERATION

Beyond the individual benefits, our class structure fosters an atmosphere of goal-oriented socializing. Students develop new skills and confront unfamiliar challenges with others—an intrinsic part of the Parkour experience.

The nature of mutual risk-assessment creates strong, empathetic friendships.

Our own team is predominantly composed of students and training partners who’ve grown up learning with us and one another. We’re a community created from a mutual love of movement and mindset, constantly growing ourselves, together.

GYM & TRAINING SPACE

Our gym is designed with everyone in mind. Seriously, we’ve taught as young as 8 months–and as old as 80. The space was designed with modularity in mind, allowing us to adapt the gym layout to the needs of every age and ability level.

It’s an ever-evolving space, never feeling exactly the same session to session. New environmental challenges arise out of each new setup, allowing for the instruction of new skills or the application of familiar skills in new settings.

NINJA

PARKOUR x NINJA
CROSS-TRAINING

ROAM blends traditional Ninja obstacles and equipment with our Parkour-inspired architecture and programming.

Parkour is about learning to adapt yourself to the environment, regardless of what it is. It improves fluidity, movement connectivity, momentum transition, and obstacle assessment–all imperative skills for anyone seeking top-level performance in high-profile Ninja competition circuits.

This is my son’s favorite place! I’ve watched his confidence grow as he learns these wonderful skills. He has faced challenges and fears with the help of the amazing coaches here. Every single person that works at Roam is so friendly, genuine and really caring. Plus the coffee bar is truly the best in town!

As someone who grew up on Assassin’s Creed, I always wanted to learn parkour but I always felt weird starting parkour as an adult. Turns out the parkour community is amazing and welcoming.Joe and Zach are leaders in the parkour community, and they often have famous parkour athletes visit the gym, or get invited to parkour events in NYC, or will let a fellow athlete film a profesh video using their space. You’re getting fitness training, but you’re also joining a community here.Highly recommend the adult program for anyone in my situation; an adult whose always wanted to try parkour? This is your spot.Shoutout to my fellow female athletes!I’ve always felt welcomed here.Also, obligatory sentence about coffee ♥️☕️. Is good! (Thanks Nick!)
