I recently received this question via e-mail.
So I live way out in the boonies and there isn’t much by me for ease of practice I have been thinking
about making a vault box, and precision poles. only cause I would have to drive 20 min. in a direction
to get to a better PK spot. I won’t be negating exploration and PK training just making it more
accessible for me on a constant basis. What do you think?
Yes I think that is a great idea! When I first started parkour, I lived in a small town where there weren’t too many spots close by. I built precision trainers and used an old metal container for a vault box in my back yard. It made training so much easier. You can work so many different things with just a simple vault box and a couple of precision trainers. You will progress much faster having easy access to those obstacles for day to day training.
Below are some links to pages for details and steps on how to actually build your own vault box and precision trainers for parkour.
