Perspectives – with Robbie Corbett
Robbie Corbett is known for many things. In this conversation, Craig talks with Robbie about a recent passion-project which Robbie has dreamed of for many years. Robbie describes Pop Up Parkour, a construction project that creates temporary parkour spaces for schools and communities. He discusses his passion for parkour and how the Pop Up Parkour project came to be. He also talks about the challenges of creating a space that accommodates people of all sizes and abilities, and how the project has helped to foster creativity and community among parkour enthusiasts.
The Creation of Pop Up Parkour
In his conversation with Craig, Robbie Corbett discusses his passion for parkour and the creation of his construction project, Pop Up Parkour.
Inspired by the parkour spaces he saw in other countries, he began to explore his local playgrounds and quickly realized the need for a space that was more accommodating to people of all sizes and abilities. This led to the creation of Pop Up Parkour, a construction project that creates temporary parkour spaces for schools and communities. The project focuses on creating a free-flowing, creative environment where parkour enthusiasts can train and challenge themselves in new ways.
Corbett and his team work closely with equipment manufacturers to design equipment that can be used for training and competitions, and they also incorporate elements that allow for flexibility and creativity in the space. In addition to providing a valuable training space for parkour enthusiasts, Pop Up Parkour has also helped to foster a sense of community and collaboration among its users. Corbett hopes to continue expanding the project and bringing parkour to more schools and communities in the future.
— Hello, I’m Craig Constantine. 👋
In the Movers Mindset podcast, I talk with movement enthusiasts to learn who they are, what they do, and why they do it. I’m interested in the nature and philosophy of movement and in exploring themes like independence, self-direction, and human excellence. My interests color each conversation and provide some structure to Movers Mindset. But since I like to take the scenic route, every conversation ends up going somewhere unique.
The purpose of Movers Mindset is to create and share great conversations with movement enthusiasts. Each conversation feeds my insatiable curiosity, but I share them to turn on a light for someone else, to inspire them, or to give them their next question.
I appreciate your time and attention, and I don’t take it for granted.
— Your support makes a difference!
I want to share more of these amazing conversations, with amazing people, but I’m limited by the cost of the project. Please support what I’m doing. Every dollar really makes a difference.
Since 2017, I’ve spent countless hours and dollars keeping Movers Mindset going. Everything has remained free and ad-free and alive thanks to patronage from listeners like you. I have no staff, no assistant… it’s just one maniac with a mic and a keyboard. If this labor of love makes your life more livable in any way, please consider contributing.
— Thank you!
My personal mission is creating better conversations to spread understanding and compassion. And Movers Mindset is one of the things I do in service of my mission. Drop by constantine.name for my weekly email, my other podcasts, writing and more.
The Movers Mindset project grew from conversations I started having as part of my personal journey rediscovering movement. The project started late in 2015, and it was initially simply a web site that shared others’ writing. The project grew, and in 2017 I started the podcast. I’ve worked extremely hard, but none of this would have been possible without so much help from so many people.
Thanks for listening!
