Hey Readers!

Those of you keeping an eye on my facebook page may recall when I posted about a photo shoot I did with Von Wong Photography and Flipside Studios last year. I’m happy to say that the final product has finally been released! It was a lot of work on everyone’s part, especially from Ben Wong who organized the equipment, gathered people and put time into editing the final pictures. Here’s the result: (more…)

A loud, pulsing screech forces you to open your eyes. You turn slowly to see red-lit numbers flashing, the loud sound continuing to blaze into your ears. Your arm feels heavy as you reach over and press the button on top of the clock. You breathe deeply at the relief of silence.

7 am, Monday. It’s time to start the day. It’s time to start the week. You get up out of bed, brush your teeth, eat breakfast and rush out to work hoping that the traffic isn’t as bad as it was last week.

HEY EVERYONE!!!

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus the last few months. Finishing the last bit of exams for school and just overall being really busy with… stuff. Lots of stuff (you can see some photos of the stuff I’ve been doing at the Flickr link to the right). Overall, the last few months have been crazy!! I got to meet a lot of amazing people and learned quite a bit with regards to movement, rehab, strength and conditioning, and just overall health and wellness. Perhaps if I get a chance I may share some of that knowledge on my blog.

For now, I just have some videos below from my training today.  I had a friend of mine (I’m jumping with him in the second clip) pushing me to do some jumps I haven’t done before/in a while. Proof that training in groups has its benefits.

All the best to those reading and keep checking back for more posts!! Click To See The Vids

Something tells me he may be a cyborg... or just incredibly talented.

This guy is crazy. One of the many I look up to when it comes to original acrobatics. I’m really not sure if this guy is human or not. Check ahead to see the full showreel. Make sure you’re sitting down for it, cuz you might get tired from hitting that replay button so often.

Me and the friends I stayed with for the trip

I’m a few weeks late on this one, but better late than never. Recently had my first trip (I know… yes, I know….) to Montreal. The last few years since I’ve started training in parkour I’ve seen the amazing stuff our neighbours were able to do with regards to movement. I wanted to see how and where they train. I finally got a taste of it, and I’m happy to say I was not disappointed. I’m looking forward to the next opportunity to go back. Perhaps next time instead of parkour I’ll check to see how the bboy scene is like.

MetaFlex! with that post race swag stance. Yeah, I did it.

After posting my warrior dash workout last week, I thought I was prepared for a good challenge. Oh, how the contrary is quick to make itself known. This race took a lot out of me. It wasn’t so much the obstacles that got to me (I mean I do parkour… I don’t mean to come off as the bragging type, but its something I train in pretty regularly. A 6 foot wall is nothing to climb over). It was the run itself that I was worried about. In anticipation of that, I ran 5km as often as I could. Not very often, because I’m not the running type. About once a week for a month and a half was enough to get me prepped to at least be able to finish the required distance.
