Name: Trevor Rittenhouse
Years of Movement: 6
Bio: I have been playing around with my movement for years but found parkour about 6 to 7 years ago. After about 3 ½ years of training with my friends with no proper instruction, I decided to go and pursue parkour in a more structured manner. I began attending Apex Movement, an amazing gym focused on teaching such movement, for extended periods of time. I would go basically live in Denver with the owners of the gym for up to a month at a time and train persistently throughout the entire trip. After returning home from my first training, I became extremely dedicated to the movement and wanted to share what I had learned with others. In this state of love for parkour, I began a parkour club through my school at the beginning of my freshman year. Ever since, the club has had increased numbers and increased talent. After about 3 years of teaching the parkour club and attending more training sessions at Apex Movement, I began instructing classes at a gym in Glenwood Springs, Colorado called Kidsplex. Unfortunately, the gym was closed about ½ a year after my beginning to work there. I absolutely love to see my growing community and seeing talents increase within myself and others. I have been extremely blessed in the sense that I have been able to do so much in strengthening my community through doing what I love. Movement is a discipline in which I wish to base the rest of my life off of and hope to reach out to others and bolster myself and the communities in which I will be part of. I am very excited to be part of the Move to Inspire team and can’t wait to inspire my peers through movement!
