Meet Caleb, Gareth, and Jeff- three guys turned best friends thanks to their mutual love of running around and jumping on things. After years of simply training together and having fun, the three decided that if no one was going give them opportunities, they were going to make their own- and thus from the cavernous vacuity of obscurity emerged a new team- a team they fondly named 'Team Rilla Hops', after a previous video they had made together. One of the things that makes Team Rilla Hops so unique is the fact that it includes two girls- Lorena and Niki- who practice parkour the same as guys (as opposed to the variations of gymnastics you usually see coming from other girls in the sport).One of the most common misconceptions about this sport is that 'Free-Running' involves flips and tricks, whereas 'Parkour' capitalizes exclusively on efficiency. The guys reveal that there is no actual difference between the two, its all about the art of getting from point A to point B.Another misconception is that it is extremely dangerous and reckless- when in reality, injuries don't actually occur very often, thanks to safety precautions and refined techniques.The goals and dreams of Team Rilla Hops are nothing more than to be able to make a living out of doing what they love and travel the world. The journey has just begun and we are all very excited to see where it is going to take them in the future. Runtime: 8 min.
