Kel Glaister, is a Parkour coach and movement enthusiast. In this conversation with Craig Constantine, Kel discusses how cultural and environmental differences can influence how people approach movement. Kel notes that there are definitely cultural differences in how people approach and think about movement, and that the availability of training spaces and the type of obstacles present can also influence how people move.

Understanding Cultural and Environmental Influences on Movement

In this conversation with Craig Constantine, Parkour coach and movement enthusiast Kel Glaister discussed how cultural and environmental differences can influence how people approach movement.

According to Kel, there are definitely cultural differences in how people approach and think about movement. In some cultures, there may be a greater emphasis on group activities and team sports, whereas in others there may be more individualistic approaches to movement and exercise.

In terms of urban versus suburban environments, Kel believes that the availability of training spaces and the type of obstacles that are present can definitely influence how people move and train. For example, in a more urban environment, there may be more opportunities for training on man-made structures, while in a suburban environment, there may be more natural obstacles and open spaces to move in.

Overall, Kel believes that the way people approach movement is influenced by a variety of factors, including cultural and environmental differences. This means that the way people move and train can vary greatly depending on where they are and what their cultural background is.

As a Parkour coach, Kel has likely seen these differences in action and has had to adapt their coaching style to accommodate them. By understanding and embracing these cultural and environmental differences, Kel and other movement enthusiasts can continue to promote and grow the movement community in a way that is inclusive and welcoming to all.


— Hello, I’m Craig Constantine. đź‘‹

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.

Supporting Movers Mindset

— 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!
