Name: Peter Chasteen
Years of Movement: 2
Bio: Ever since the beginning I’ve been active. I remember my parents always being stressed about the way I ran around the house and climbed the walls. An old household story sometimes gets tossed around at dinner parties about a plunge from the 2nd story banister when I was 4. As a kid I was always interested in more and more kinetic movement. My favorite things in the world were riding a bicycle and going on a winter Ski trip if we were lucky. As I grew older we stopped going to the mountains. The last thing I could do was ride my bike with my best friend Aj Aljaafreh while he rode his skateboard. Then one day around the summer of 2010 he called me to go train parkour for the first time. I have never loved something so much. Ever since I have started my priorities have changed for the better. I have become more self sufficient and more motivated than ever. Every day of training that I use to overcome my boundaries leaves me utterly happy. I can find complete contentment with basic clothes and a few hours to be creative. I want to share this feeling with anyone and everyone. Through my movement I have been fortunate enough to secure a great job teaching children’s gymnastics. I have also become a member of PK O.U.T., a Dallas based stunt team. With my position as a Move To Inspire athlete I hope to gain nothing more than further awareness of parkour and freerunning for what it really is, something beautiful.
