HOUSTON’S FIRST AND ONLY PARKOUR AND NATURAL MOVEMENT GYM

GET STARTED

MAKE YOUR OWN PATH

Since 2011, Urban Movement (a.k.a. UMOVE) is the first and only Parkour and Natural Movement gym in based Houston, Texas. Our head coaches have been certified by and regularly train with the founders of each of those practices. We’re unique because we’re part of a very small group in the USA who are directly affiliated with the ADD Academy in Paris, France. ADD stands for Art Du Deplacement, it is the root discipline where Parkour and Freerunning come from, and it was developed by a group called the Yamakasi. We are also proud to be a MovNat Licensed Facility. MovNat is the education system for Natural Movement created by Erwan LeCorre.

UMOVE is integrated into the city of Houston with an excellent reputation. Our five star Google and Facebook reviews speak volumes to how focussed we are on developing the community and making quality connections. We’ve worked with neighborhoods, schools, museums, libraries, almost all the news stations in town, we have an NPR interview that replays every once in a while, and we teach a regular class at Discovery Green Park which is sponsored by Sprouts. Our coaches have taught all over the world, worked on movie sets, booked commercials and print, and we’ve even performed locally at the Wortham Center in Downtown, Houston.

Although it’s pretty funny, this isn’t “Hardcore Parkour!”, and we are not Gymnastics. We have fun, we play games and some of us do learn how to safely jump off rooftops and do backflips, but it’s more like a martial art where we earn our movement. A lot of our members just want to move better at ground level. We see it as a lifestyle. Our motto is, “MAKE YOUR OWN PATH”. Skills and techniques that you can expect to see in class range from crawling on the ground to scaling walls, from learning multiple ways to juggle to lifting and throwing heavy objects. We work on the full range of natural human movements like balance, running, jumping, climbing, vaulting and more. The supportive environment we create upgrades children and allows adults feel like a kid again.

Our mindful way of coaching makes movement accessible to any body. We’ve worked with students of all ages and all ranges of ability. Often times, it’s our classes that (re)introduce people to a general movement practice for the first time. Get started today!

INVEST IN PLAY

Don't take it from us! Listen to what students and parents have to say.

urban movement testimonial best investment ever.jpg
Urban Movement has been the best investment I’ve made in my son’s life thus far! They have impacted him in such a way that I now have an amazingly confident and self-aware 14-year-old. We didn’t just get a gym, trainer, or a coach...we got a family!

My 7-year-old son loved the camp and is excited to return to the next camp and classes. Many parents I talk to say their boys are attracted to alternative sports platforms that include mindfulness vs. traditional team sports.

My wife and I have been coming to Urban Movement for more than a year now and classes are great! A wonderful workout and fun and engaging instructors. I can’t recommend this more.

Right away I was impressed by the respectful, collaborative nature of the classes. They are truly working together for improvement. My son likes that they are not really competing with each other but are always encouraged to raise the bar on their own development.
