Intro to Natural Parkour: 6 Weeks from Couch Potato to Movement Hero
Discover your rewarding and sustainable movement practice. Master the movements you evolved for. Injury-proof your body, and take the next step towards cultivating a more deeply connected, integrated and empowered self — Your Heroic Self!
Fitness Doesn’t Have to be Boring.
Each one of us has a voice inside that calls out for a brighter future and a better self. A heroic self. Sometimes it’s just a whisper... other times it’s so loud it keeps you up at night.
You know health plays a big role in your ability to answer the call, but today's fitness culture has left so many people feeling unmotivated, frustrated, and incapable of achieving their goals.
You deserve more than that. You deserve a practice that empowers you, igniting your passion for life by reconnecting you to the key human nutrients: movement, mindfulness, nature and community.
Do you believe you’re a hero? Are you ready to live like one? Answer the call. Become the person you’re meant to be both internally and externally.
Get Started with Natural Parkour
As a human, we evolved for more than treadmills and weight machines...
🌳 We evolved to run swiftly through the forest
⛰ To jump between rocks and vault over fallen trees
🌬 To breathe hard the fresh air
🌤 To feel the sun on our smiling faces, and the wind on our backs
Don’t settle for a fitness program that’s so tedious you need music or screens to distract you from the drudgery.
You deserve a satisfying movement routine that captivates your attention, and brings you joy.
Our natural movement online course will empower you to move with grace and flow, while connecting deeply to the world around you.
Your journey to mastering these natural movement fundamentals will be backed by a community of dedicated individuals, striving to achieve their best while supporting each other at every level.
"There is much talk about embodiment today, but Rafe has used his extensive experience and expertise to put together an excellent course that puts you more directly in touch with your own embodied agency in a way that will transform your sense of connectedness to yourself, to other people, and to the natural world. Here is a real opportunity to make a deep and lasting difference to who you are and how meaningfully you live." - John Vervaeke University of Toronto, Assistant Professor

Moving Beyond Exercise
Why are people not motivated to move?
There are so many resources to aid our efforts— buildings full of hyper smooth and futuristic exercise machines, more supplements than we could ever buy, and scores of eager personal trainers looking to whip us into shape for bikini season.
Yet as gym memberships rise, so do rates of anxiety, depression and obesity… something is missing.
Humans crave engagement, we crave meaning.
We need more than just sore muscles and a way to get sweaty; we need a practice to develop real skills and expand our vision of what we are capable of achieving.
A practice that brings us into flow.
What is Natural Parkour?
For millions of years we’ve forged our bodies and our minds to meet the demands of survival in nature.
We had to climb, vault and jump to find food and escape danger. We had to be capable of crawling low to the ground to sneak up on prey, and we needed to be able to take a fall without injuring ourselves.
These abilities not only made us formidable, they laid the foundation for every incredible feat humans are capable of today.
The only modern practice that incorporates all of these natural movement basics AND practices them in a wide variety of complex environments is natural parkour.
Other natural movement online courses only teach movement patterns, and leave you without a personal connection to nature.
That’s why we’ve chosen to use it as a base framework for constructing the (INP) 6-Week Intro to Natural Parkour Course Online that you can do safely outdoors. (To read more about the safety of outdoor exercise, read our COVID-19 Response Page)
All that’s required to get started with natural parkour is your body, nature, and a guide to help you on the path towards unlocking your potential.
“Intro to Natural Parkour” (INP) is a Step-by-Step Course Designed to Answer...

“If you're on the fence about the cost or if you can commit the time, so was I.
I am a full time dad, working weekends, so money is tight and time even more so. It's been tough to get it all in but I've managed, and I feel the best I've felt in years. My wife and others have said I'm back to the person I used to be and that was just a couple weeks in.” - Albert Peacock, INP Student

"In the short time I've known of Rafe's work, I've found many of the answers I've been looking for in the last decade of my coaching life...
I'd highly recommend Rafe's work and ideas to anyone in the community of health and human performance, from the university or pro-strength coach, to the freshman basketball coach and YMCA dance class instructor. There is more joy and power to be found in our modern training systems and Rafe's system is more needed now than ever." - Joel Smith, MS, CSCS Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach at UC Berkeley
