Meet founding member Corey Romines

Corey Romines entered the Parkour scene in it's very earlier stages of development.  He has been involved with movement arts for over 20 years, but his passion is for none other than Parkour.  He is Co-Founder of Free Flow Academy, the largest Parkour gym in California, and has been personally training hundreds of students for the past 5 years.  His overall reach within the Parkour community has been literally thousands of students, as he has headed up multiple classes and programs in and around the Greater Sacramento region via gymnastics, parkour, and fitness gyms, as well as parks and rec centers and more.  He continues his education through research and internship programs, and works closely with a variety of medical professionals, including but not limited to physical therapists, as well as a podiatry clinic owned and operated by his parents.  He believes in training for health and longevity, fun, and promoting a play based atmosphere for his students.  Corey is also the head trainer of the all Women's Parkour group - Eagle & Hawk PK.

Corey contributes to the daily operations of Free Flow Academy, and gives additional time and energy serving as a consultant to other parkour gyms and programs who require equipment consultation and design, class programming, coach preparation, and the implementation of "safe play."  He has also designed the Free Flow Academy Parkour Coach Certification Program, as well as the Free Flow Academy Affiliation Program, and regularly volunteers and heads up "Leave No Trace" service projects with the youth and other members of the community.
