As we make strides during 2016, getting closer and closer to open the doors of a year-round training facility and preparing for a full class schedule, we are going to release a series of feature articles to showcase some of Fusion’s greatest supporters. I have had the great opportunity to train with countless students and work with so many others who have been a great source of inspiration and encouragement. It’s an important thing to take a step back and acknowledge the people who may not be center stage, but who have played a part in helping you realize your dream.
Our next feature article is devoted to Tinara O'Rourke.
Tinara, like most of our traceurs, is crazy goal-oriented and can not always make regular training sessions. When she does, you know it. Usually that’s because you can hear her from half a mile away…
If there’s anything you can say about Tinara, it’s that she is one of our biggest motivators. She pushes herself extremely hard, and does the same for everyone around her, regardless of his or her skill level. She always wants to help others do their best, look their best, and feel their best.
If you need examples of her devotion, take a look at The Fitness Model, her facebook page devoted entirely to health and fitness motivation.
In the world of parkour, Tinara is an absolute fireball.
She’s quick to tease a veteran if she catches him or her during one of those lazy moments, and her eagerness to help a newcomer means that nobody is ever left watching from the sidelines. Her energy level and focus are such that Tinara has pushed herself to advance very quickly.
On the rare occasions she isn’t laughing or shouting, she often has a fierce look of concentration on her face, while she contemplates how to overcome her latest obstacle.
Tinara’s energy, modesty, and
welcoming nature make her a beacon
for new students.
We’re proud of her accomplishments
and are very excited to see her
guide newcomers toward the
addictive success inherent in parkour.
Thank you, Tinara, for all that you
have brought to Fusion Parkour
and for all that we will continue
to learn from you in the future.
