It’s with great excitement and gratitude that we welcome Travis Parkyn to the Bird Rock Fit team! Many of you may have seen him around the studio lately–you might have even had the pleasure of seeing his backflip skills! If you haven’t seen it I’m sure he’d be glad to show you.

Here’s a little bit more about our brand new team member:

Travis comes from a large family of 7 and was born in Fountain Valley, California. He played organized football, baseball, basketball, and gymnastics as a youth and was an All-League football and baseball player for University City High in San Diego. He played rugby for San Diego Old Aztecs Rugby Club during his senior year of high school and formerly coached boys’ gymnastics at the La Jolla YMCA. In 2011, he was honored with the prestigious title of YMCA San Diego County Wellness Coach of the Year. Recently, Travis became a Top 15 USA Olympic Style Weightlifter in the 85kg class and won the 2014 California State Games.

Travis currently leads the Monday and Friday sessions at 6:30, and Thursdays at 7:30 and 9:30. Make sure you drop into one of his dynamic sessions.!
