“Our facility was looking to add unique parkour and Ninja Warrior setups to our gym, and we hired The Movement Creative to design, build, and test the equipment. Working with Jesse and The Movement Creative team was a pleasure from the start to finish- we were very involved in the entire process and could see that their team was just as invested in the project as we were. Jesse came to our location several times to speak with us in person about what we wanted from the project, and provided us with 3D models of the designs so we could visualize them and make modifications. The final builds were exactly what we were looking for, and they have been an incredible addition to our program.
The Movement Creative team is clearly passionate about the projects they take on, and are dedicated to seeing them through to the end. They were happy to come in and make final adjustments, and have followed up by asking us how the sets have held up after use. They are experts on the design and construction of play structures, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for something unique to add to their facility or personal space.”

“Our whole family takes Movement Creative classes in the parks and our daughters, 8 and 11, also attend parkour summer camp in Central Park (we hope next year they'll be free when the Governor's Island camps are scheduled). The instruction is excellent, and we all learn not only great technique but also how to find strength and confidence in our bodies and ourselves.”
“This is the group to join. Challenges all levels and welcomes all walks of life. They are thoughtful and generous coaches who value supporting your personal exploration. I have trained with them for years and never been disappointed. Both my boys train with them and happily we play together as a family, too. This is what you've been looking for.”
“This is the group to train with if you're looking for serious progression in strength and technique. There is a brilliant set of knowledgeable teachers, a friendly and accepting atmosphere, different training areas every week so to stimulate your mind and body, and an incredible amount of fun to be had every time.
Training with the Movement Creative has made me better at parkour, but has also made me stronger and smarter for martial arts and gymnastics, as well as any other sport I would choose to do. It has really been awesome training with them this past six months and I wish I knew about it sooner!
I challenge anyone interested to come check it out, don't be shy! It is incredibly easy for someone of any level to come and start, I guarantee you will learn a lot and become stronger mentally and physically for anything you may choose to do in life.
“Went for my first session with these guys and gals and had a blast. We had a gentle warm up followed by exercises designed to increase limb and core strength as well as cardiovascular potential.
The more advanced exercises had variations with different levels of intensity allowing the user to determine his or her own level of difficulty. This was especially helpful for me as I'm nursing a shoulder injury and am still getting back to full strength.
We ended with a series of games that were fun as well as physically challenging. Everyone was extremely approachable, very friendly and eager to assist one another in learning the proper movements of the exercises. I would definitely recommend coming out and joining in a session if you've any interest in parkour/free running and want to develop your strength and mobility.”
“I highly recommend this to anyone trying to get in shape. Jesse is extremely talented in Parkour with their extensive knowledge. I found this place by accident and am happy to be part of this team. Because of Parkour, I was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight, able to be more confident and had a lifestyle change.”
“I stumbled on this class a year ago in Central Park and I have loved it ever since. Jesse, Caitlin and NIkkie are all excellent teachers and great movers. As a beginner, they were always ready with substitutions for things I wasn't comfortable with yet, and now as an intermediate they are extremely knowledgeable about the subtleties of moving well and in a healthy way. It's not a stretch to say that this class has changed my life. I feel stronger and more confidant in the way I do everything with my body. It's helped me at work and helped make the city a place I can play in. The atmosphere of the class is very accepting and welcoming. I like that they change locations every week in order to train different areas of the body and different skills. I would recommend this class to anyone looking to get stronger, period, beyond of course anyone interested in parkour!”
“Movement creative is as best as it can get for learning Parkour, I have worked with both Jesse and Caitlin and they took this 50 year old and through patient, attentive instruction they had me climbing, vaulting, balancing, jumping through monkey bars and swinging, and vaulting over high ropes and bars to land on my feet. I've increased my strength, agility and overall fitness level as they put me through the paces of parkour. At 50 I'm running through obstacles with people half my age and I am doing well. I thought those days were long behind me but they've proven that through proper training and the right instructors the sky is literally the limit. I've taken up the Movement Creative challenge, and I'm not looking back Why not join us!!”
“the movement creative has changed my life for the better. i initially came because i wanted to get a good workout, and get my conditioning up for parkour. what i didn't expect was to make such wonderful friends, and have some of the best times of my life. i can't even begin to accurately explain what an amazing feeling it is to spend an evening meeting up at some beautiful location in the city (they change every week), and just enjoying this fun, creative workout as the sun goes down. this isn't just any workout either, it's creative and playful, and you really get to experience the pure joy that is your body's movement. it's also one of the toughest conditioning sessions i've ever been to, although there's no 'macho b.s.'. anyone can do this conditioning session, whether you're an elite level freerunner looking to take your conditioning to the next level, or a middle-aged, out of shape guy or girl with a corporate day job, who's looking for something more exciting than going to a gym. everyone there remembers their first session as well, and they're super encouraging and supportive. if you come out, and stick with it, before long you'll be doing things you never dreamed you'd be capable of. the hardest part is just making that decision to get out there and start moving.”
I highly recommend this to anyone trying to get in shape. Jesse, Nikie, and Caitlan are extremely talented in Parkour with their extensive knowledge. I found this place by accident and am happy to be part of this team. Because of Parkour, I was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight, able to be more confident and had a lifestyle change.
