Fight or Flight 28.jpg

We offer classes for all age ranges between 7-122. You do not need any previous Parkour experience to try a class. We have multiple beginner class options throughout the week for you to try.

We teach to all fitness levels. Train Parkour to get in shape, don't get in shape to train Parkour.

Fight or Flight Academy is a 9000 square foot facility designed for realism. Anything you learn inside the gym can be taken outside on real obstacles. Our gym is not safe. We teach you how to be safe within it.

Our two bar setups are taken down and rebuilt into a different design every 1-2 months. Our larger wooden obstacles are rearranged every 3-6 months. Our smaller obstacles are moved around every day.

There is always something new to discover each day you come to the gym.


We can teach to all ages and skill levels. We currently have students ranging from 7-58, and have taught people upwards of 80 years old.

It's never too early or too late to start. Parkour is a personalized discipline, meant to be taken at your own pace.


"I’d always thought it was a neat idea but something way out of my league. I was 31 years old, out of shape, and I never thought for a second I could do any of it. I remember taking the intro class and being super nervous but I thought the gym was so cool."

-Nate "Biggy Wiggy" Wilson-Grady



Many of our coaches are APK Certified Parkour Instructors. In fact, Chad Zwadlo, one of the owners of Fight or Flight Academy, travels the country to run the APK Certification, teaching other coaches how to teach. We take our coaching seriously, and we never stop learning.


Everybody has to start somewhere. Why not start now? Try one of our free classes. You may be surprised what your body is capable of.


"Now, years later, I am teaching alongside those who taught me. I am bringing others along in the journey that I started so long ago. Watching new people get excited about their first underbar, or the first time they got on top of the 7' such a fulfilling experience for me."
