Parkour: Practitioners aim to move quickly and efficiently through their environment using only their bodies and their surroundings to propel themselves, negotiating obstacles in between. They try to maintain as much momentum as possible without being unsafe. Parkour can include running, climbing, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling, quadrupedal movement and more. Think Assassin's Creed for you fellow n3rds out there ;)
Crossfit: A strength and conditioning program designed to help people gain a broad and general fitness. CrossFit programming concentrates on constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity to achieve overall physical fitness, so people are prepared for any physical challenge.
Bouldering: is a form of rock climbing in which the climber attempts to reach the top of a boulder, usually from ground level or a specified start position. No ropes are used to protect or aid the climber. Indoor bouldering walls often feature steep overhanging surfaces, forcing the climber to employ highly technical movements while supporting much of their weight with their upper body strength.
They also offer Brazilian Jui Jitsu, Tough Mudder and personal training sessions. Here are some photos of the facilities.

|The artwork around the gym is amazing. FYI I didn't do any photoshopping. The harnesses can be used in a variety of ways to do pushups, planks and chin ups.|

|Which is harder- bouldering or getting out of the foam pit?|
|The answer is most probably getting out of the foam pit.|
It was so much fun! There are 3 different levels of membership available depending on your needs. Frankly, it is more expensive than your regular gym, but I mean look at the place! There is no way you could get sick of exercising with all these facilities and challenging classes. Epic Lifestyle is located at
