Can adults also freerun?

Freerunning is a very popular sport among children and young people. You come across freerunners more and more on the streets and in the media. It is striking that most freerunners are relatively young. But can adults also freerun? We think so and we'll explain why!

Few older freerunners, why is that?

You don't often see the older generation freerunning. We think there are a number of reasons for this. The main reason is probably that adults did not consider themselves flexible or sporty enough. The spectacular images in the media scare them off. Fear also plays a major role in this. This is not necessary because within freerunning everyone can train at their own level. There are plenty of accessible elements to practice within the sport. In addition, there is a childish image about the sport. Jumping around the city is something that is not yet seen as an adult activity. We have to get rid of that prejudice because freerunning is also a very cool and educational sport for parents!

Free running for young and old

Freerunning is a very broad sport, there are countless elements and endless challenges to do. You can even come up with your own trick or challenge. There is something to do for everyone, including adults. The sport is about getting your body under control, this is of course also very instructive for the elderly. Again and again you push your own limits and this can even form a life lesson for other situations in daily life. Because you learn to move smoothly, you may feel better about yourself and this can have a positive effect on your mental state. Freerunning has so many advantages!

Special lessons for adults

Nowadays, more and more adults and older people are interested in the sport. There are even special freerunning classes for adults. There you will get started with the basics of freerunning. New techniques are taught and you can work towards a new trick or jump. By slowly building up new elements, you can gradually overcome your fears. You do this in a safe environment where everyone wants to help each other and everyone can train at their own level.
