Craig: And of course, the final question, three words to describe your practice.
Melissa: So we’ve mentioned side projects a couple of times. And I think side projects are really cool, and not something I’ve gotten to experience in any other kind of work situation. So credit to Craig for that, it’s basically allowing us to kind of and paying us to use our time to pursue something we’re interested in. And that could be adjacent to Movers Mindset and what we’re working on or it could not be, but it’s finding something that we’re passionate about, and kind of almost like a personal, yeah, professional or personal development, a growth project. So finding something that we care about that we want to pursue, that we’re being supported, kind of by Craig and the Movers Mindset project to do and to pursue, which is a really, really unique and awesome opportunity, I think.Continue Reading…

There are so many ways parkour and training it has affected my life, both inwardly and outwardly. I feel it has really helped to change my mindset on myself; my strengths and weaknesses, goals and abilities. It has made me a stronger person both mentally and physically. Training parkour is much bigger than just training; it applies to everything you do in life, growing, setting goals, and bettering yourself.
On an outward level, through training parkour I have had the opportunity to travel, and continue to train, learn new things and meet new people.
I have met some of the best and most inspiring people that I know, who have become a part of my journey.
I am a student, an artist, a teacher, and a traceuse. Each separate piece informs and affects all of the other pieces, and each of these things has become an important part of who I am, as well as who I am becoming.
