For daredevils who dream about vaulting across railings, parkour might be the sport for you. Albeit dangerous, it’s a full mind and body workout, as you’ll have to face your fears and use your entire body to execute jumps and flips. Superfly Monkey Dragons offers classes for both kids and adults alike while Ashton Movements provides private classes even for families.

According to Ashton, a professional parkour pioneer and founder of Ashton Movements, a student’s progression depends on their athletic ability.
