JARED JJ WOODS
I am a certified personal trainer, Professional Freerunner, Stuntman, and an NBC American Ninja Warrior Athlete. I am a passionate athlete who exemplifies what it means to live free and on the edge of your seat. My strength comes from steadfast dedication to living life hard with no room for compromise when it comes to achieving goals.
I've been doing parkour for over 8 years now. I've always been physically active in whatever I do in my life. One of the reasons I enjoy coaching at MFR is because I get to see people break all sorts of boundaries and being able to see the excitement in them is always rewarding.
I have trained Parkour since 2007 and it has allowed me to help many newcomers to the discipline feel comfortable and welcome to something wonderful. I also like turtles.
I have been training some form of movement for most of my life, having done mixed martial arts for years before beginning to train parkour 5 years ago. One of my favorite things about coaching is being able to watch my students gain more confidence in themselves and be able to accomplish challenges they never thought they could.
I love to move and not let anything stop me. I have been training Parkour for a little over 8 years and I'm never going to stop. When I fall I always get back up and keep trying till I finally get it.
I've been training parkour for about 3 years now and it has really helped me gain confidence in all aspects of my life whether social or mental. Parkour has been a real life changing experience for me and I love to see new people come in to the sport and have it impact them in the same way.
