Introducing Stephen Laster - APK Ambassador

We are very pleased to announce the newest member of the APK family, Stephen Laster. He started his journey back in 2008. Please check out his story and join us in welcoming him.


"In November of 2008, I looked at myself in the mirror, and I stepped on a scale.  I weighed 315 pounds and was about to start probation.  I knew I needed to do something... Something just to change myself up, new routine, new something.  I had started watching parkour videos when I was 18, and just kept saying I wish I could do that.  Finally, when I was really ready for a change, a friend of mine came up to me and said, "Why don't we try to do that?"  I haven't stopped since." 

"What I've gotten out of parkour is a new respect of living.  I don't even want to think about what my quality of life would be like now without parkour, and I think that's what I would like to pass on to anyone getting in to parkour now.  It's not just about running and jumping on stuff, it truly is a lifestyle.  When you're a traceur, you see the world in a different light.  Without parkour I don't think I would have learned how much I love to cook.  Making healthy food to aid me on my weight loss made me realize how much I enjoy being in the kitchen.  All of my passions in one actually come through in the kitchen, I can blare very loud, heavy music, while making a good dinner, that will keep my body fueled for my next workout!"
