Starting Aug. 1st, our drop in price will be increasing from $25 to $30.

So, I recorded a video explanation to provide some background, insight, as well as a more face to face interaction so that you can better understand why the increase is happening, what you’re gett ..read more

Call for Help! Joel & Rach’s House Burned Down

2M ago
12 minutes. That’s how long it took for RocPK’s long time community member and friend to many Joel Bailey’s house to become almost completely overtaken by flames. If that’s not scary enough, it happened while he was in the shower, just after his fiance, Rach (also a community member), had left for work. It brings me no joy to write out that Joel’s training paid off exactly a week ago, as he attempted to leave his burning house, only to find that the front door was completely engulfed by flames and thick smoke. With no other choice, he exited out a second story window and jumped off the roof ..read more

Rochester Parkour Blog
by charles
2y ago
Dear RocPK Community, With the recent news last week from Governor Cuomo ending all State mandates on businesses, we were forced to do a lot of thinking on how to best move forward and update gym policies. It ended up being harder than we thought so we crafted an anonymous survey and sent it out to our long-term patrons to ask for their honest thoughts on the matter. Your answers were extremely informative as well as diverse. Thank you to all who added in their comments to help us land on these changes. Before we list our updates, it’s pertinent to again state the imposition we’re put in as ..read more
