Glasgow Parkour Coaching have been try out some barefoot movement in recent months and have seen a number of benefits that supplement our regular Parkour training. Using Vivos on light training days, and practicing small movements with maximum proprioception definitely improves co-ordination, balance and precision which are absolutely essential for parkour. Any training that we can do that strengthens the ankles, allows them to move around their full range of motion, and promotes a natural foot movement will support our jump and landing strength that we need to practice safely.
The fact that we can wear vivos day-to-day, while teaching and even on non-training days and still be doing something that benefits our bodies is great! Please enjoy the short barefoot parkour video we made of some of our experience with VIVOBAREFOOT.
