Here at Pinnacle Parkour Academy Philadelphia...
… we teach students of all ages obstacle course type training, as well as the importance of exercise, overcoming fears, and the benefits of a fulfilling community of like-minded people.
PPK Academy was the first gym on the east coast dedicated solely to parkour. We have an amazing 11,000 square foot facility, fully equipped with a bar setup, foam pit, tumble track, dance floor, spring floor, and many obstacles to work with.
Parkour is a movement art and discipline. Its roots are buried deep into every person. We all climbed, jumped and ran as children. Why don't we anymore? Pinnacle Parkour Academy strives to make the regular workout routine fun. Why would you settle for a workout that you can't stand when superhuman achievement is right around the corner?
We are a community, with one goal: to help each other become the best athletes possible.
We aim to inspire through movement and to help people Move with a Purpose.

Loved class! Came for the free homeschool meet for my son and want to join myself! - Nelly Ma'at
Awesome facility! The gym has so many interesting places to explore, jump, & climb…the possibilities are endless! The coaching staff is also incredible! They enjoy sharing their knowledge and love of parkour. They know how to encourage students to push themselves to try new things and consistently grow. I love seeing the students follow through with what they are taught, improve, and succeed! They offer a variety of classes, special events, & open gym opportunities. I encourage everyone to come check it out! - Valerie Neuber

Drove up from Baltimore two weekends in a row for a workshop and then a jam. Some of the best times I've had doing parkour. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to come back! - Stephan Frisbie
Literally the best parkour gym that I have ever been to. Extremely high ceilings for training at heights. Endless lines are possible. Andy Taylor is the man for building a gym. - Joe Gilberg
