Parkour Visions is moving into our own building!
After 5 years at our current location, our lease is up and we need to move. We have spent months searching in the tightest commercial real estate market in recent history, and we're finally ready to announce our new home. A move like this presents many challenges for our community, but it also brings exciting new opportunities to improve our program, facility, and member experience. We've set up this webpage to fill you in on the details.
New address: 2600 Airport Way S, Seattle WA 98134
Bad news first: If you live in Fremont, Ballard, Magnolia, or Queen Anne, it will likely take you longer to get to the gym. Everyone at PKV involved in choosing this location lives in Ballard, and staying in the area was always our first choice. After making the drive several times, the difference turned out better than we expected.
If you use I-5 to reach us, or cross I-5 on your way to the gym, you can likely expect a faster trip. The new location is one block from Exit 163B, making the interstate an attractive option. The gym is 5 minutes from the Stadium exit off 99, and the SODO light rail station is two blocks away.
As everyone who's sat in Ballard Bridge traffic can attest, Seattle traffic can be pretty unpredictable. We'll do our best to accommodate late arrivals as our students and parents get used to the new trip.
How you can help
Getting a new building ready for classes does not come cheap. Our rent is increasing substantially, and the building needs significant improvements. The goal is to make the new gym as nice as possible as early as we can, with a full parent's area, member amenities, and lots of new obstacles. We need capital to make that happen, so here's what we're offering:
Pre-pay for 5 months of membership, get the 6th month free
This gets us the money we need for the build out, and gives you a nice discount. You'll also get an exclusive shirt to show our appreciation:
This offer will be available until the end of September, so let us know soon if you want to do it!
We are going to be on an incredibly tight schedule to be able to open for classes as soon as we can so we'll be organizing a series of volunteer work parties for all of those who'd like to come and help out. No experience required unless noted, see our Moving Document for details, and put your name in for times you can help!

We're sure that everyone will have a lot more questions about the move. We're happy to explain whatever we can. Hit us up at the gym, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 206.923.8864. Also be sure to watch our Facebook page for more up-to-date info!
