ok, so free running is something ive been wanting to do for a lont time now. so i looked up some tutorials and all of them said "join club" or "make sure you have a proffesional with you" one problem. my town has no one with free running experience and help from my friends is a big no. so how do i start free running all by myself?

Don't!

Take this from someone who tried to learn Parkour on his own and ended up flat on his face more than once. Get someone who is experienced with free running to teach you! If there's no one in your local area, that's tough shit.

If it's really something you want to try out, do what it takes to find someone (or better yet, a collection of people [preferably a club.]) They usually have indoor equipment for you to use until you're up to performing tricks in open areas like parks etc. I learned everything I know from the guys I worked with. You'll also want to train to improve VO2 max and all over body strength.

Mind you, I can only advise you. If you wish to try this on your own, you're a fool with a death wish.

Even if there was someone local to you that could help, you'd have to spend 6 months or so training for this. The majority of the guys teaching Parkour nowadays expect a certain degree of fitness from the people they're teaching.

And yeah, Parkour is tough, probably even more so if you're unprepared, unfit and as weak as a cocktail stick supporting John Prescott's fat arse.

Remember, like skating, Parkour is only cool if you can pull off a trick. Stack it and you look like a total tool.

well there are few things i go through the end. and free running is something i will stick with no matter how hard the training. just like how im sticking with cross country.

Take a look at Urban Freeflow. I've been registered there for nearly two years and there are some knowledgeable guys on there who are probably more than willing to give you some tips and advice. :)
