Gymnastics/Tumbling class/club?

I'm sure everybody's seen those city runners, the guys who run around cities jumping off walls and stuff. I know they train in gyms and whatnot - but I was wondering if there were any gyms like that in Vancouver? With foam pits, etc. I know it seems stupid to think that they would have classes that would teach stuff like that - but a lot of the stuff is just gymnastics/tumbling stuff. Anybody know of any clubs or whatnot?

Club Aviva and Phoenix Gymnastics come to mind immediately.
http://clubaviva.ca/
http://www.phoenixgymnastics.com/

Both have foam pits, but you'll have to phone/check for public availability/classes/open gym time.

A little more googling and I found one in Delta.

U mean 'parkour?'

I beleive Vancouver has a parkour club. Google is your friend.

However....thats all outdoors, but i am sure the club will get you into the groove as you train indoors.

Every sunday, rain or shine, 3pm in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery downtown.

They meet up and go parkour/freerunning for a couple hours.

First time I went, their warmup was more than an entire workout for me.
