Hey everyone!
 
We are Revolution Parkour
We believe in the value of movement as part of a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle and that "working out" doesn't have to be boring.  We love seeing people move and have fun doing it.  At Revolution Parkour, we've been helping students, from ages 7 to 70, train in Parkour and Freerunning for the past five years.  In our Parkour classes, students learn to interact with their environment more efficiently by maneuvering over, under and through obstacles.  Freerunning students learn to explore the beauty and enjoyability of movement by incorporating acrobatic skills-such as flips, into their Parkour techniques.  We believe there are a lot of people on the East Side of Portland that would benefit from and enjoy having such a facility at which to train, which is why we've made it our goal to start up Revolution Parkour - East Portland.  
 
The Plan
With your help, we're going to bring movement to East Portland in a whole new way.  We want to provide a place where people of all ages, from all walks of life can come train and be active in a non-competitive environment. We're excited to teach more students and start a revolution for people who are tired of the treadmill and ready to discover true movement.    
 
We have the capital to cover the cost of rent, staff and other business expenses, but what's a gym without stuff to play on?  All the funds that we raise from this crowdfunding project will go toward building costs and equipment for the new gym.  We've set our fundraising goal at $40,000.  With that we would be able to create a new gym very similar to the one currently in Beaverton, that would allow us to teach Parkour and some Freerunning.  However, our vision is to elevate the new gym and add equipment specifically for Freerunning, Tricking and Ninja Warrior training.  Let's be real here: this equipment is VERY expensive.  Therefore, in order to give you the most epic gym you could imagine, we'll need to surpass our goal of $40,000.  See below for more details on what we could do with different levels of funding AND the additional perks you can get if we reach those levels.      
 
Where the Money Will Go
Everything that you donate will go directly to the build-out of the new facility, to things like:
  • different sized walls
  • vaults
  • bars
  • scaffolding
  • a mega flow box
  • spring floor
  • foam pit

and to Ninja Warrior training equipment like:

  • a warped wall
  • cliff hanger
  • salmon ladder
  • spider climb
  • cargo net.  

If we raise enough, we have a few surprises up our sleeves that will blow your mind. :D

 
Why Help?
Somewhere along the line, our culture sat down and stopped moving.  We lost sight of not only the importance of movement, but also how fun it can be!  Our bodies were designed to climb, jump, leap, run, and bound.  Come discover a place where you can not only stay fit, but also meet new people, build mental and physical strength, challenge yourself, and become a part of a friendly, encouraging community. We can honestly say you'll feel right at home at Revolution Parkour!
 
Please share the link to this page as much as you can.  The more people that know about this, the more excellent the final product will be!
 
Thanks for your support!
We hope you are as excited as we are about this.  We hope you know how much we appreciate you. And we hope you're ready for the coolest Parkour & Freerunning facility ever!  Let's get moving!
 
 
With a whole lot of gratitude,
