Going to high school I thought I had everything figured out and that I was going to be businessman and sell things and make money my whole life. Little did I know my life was about to change entirely. A group of kids I had been friends with started doing Parkour and urged me to do it with them and finally helped me to learn to do a front flip. After that I was instantly hooked on the art of movement and the Parkour lifestyle and philosophy that came with it. I have been training for 5 years since that day! I have had the opportunity to travel across the United States with the “Inspire Tour” and train with many incredible people. I now have so many friends all over the U.S. who I have these bonds with that only a Parkour practitioner can understand. I can travel anywhere in the country knowing I have a place to stay with one of them. It is truly incredible what simple movement can do for you. It has opened my eyes to many different activities such as hiking, camping, and bouldering, and through all of these things I have had some great memories that I will never forget. My name is Eddie Collins, I’m from Boston, Massachusetts, I’m a Freerunner, and I wouldn’t change that for anything!
