Today we’d like to introduce you to Dylan Polin.
Dylan, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Hey all! So my name is Dylan Polin and I own Hub Parkour Training Center! I got started with the whole parkour scene years ago as a kid after finding a few videos online and starting my autodidact journey of learning how to move! The culture of Parkour is to learn and move with others so quickly coaching became a huge part of my life, and eventually started a Parkour program in Westwood, MA. We outgrew our space there and moved to Norton where we opening HUB Parkour, New Englands premiere parkour training space! We host the biggest events and train the most dedicated athletes and coaches to be a hotbed for parkour and movement learning.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The whole chase of finding an area and space for a parkour gym was in itself a battle. After finding what was our best shot at a space we needed to – quickly- create this gigantic obstacle course and snap into gym owning mode – completely different than just training parkour! This has been a humbling road and has taught the whole team innumerable lessons along the way that have undoubtedly made us stronger, at least mentally!
Hub Parkour Training Center – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Our company, HUB PTC are specialists in demystifying movement, particularly through parkour. The whole point of the organization is to get people seeing movement differently and unlocking some of the hidden potentials that we know everyone has!
There are thankfully many places that teach parkour now, but HUB is the leading organization of coaching high-level movement from the athletes who actually practice parkour and are competitive parkour athletes! That tied with our modular inventive gym build give us the perfect storm to mixing fun training with safe and sure practice.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
My definition for success is very relative – my accomplishments are only great if superior to my past accomplishments. Something amazing about coaching is being able to vicariously live through the small baby steps of a new student – elements that are far mastered by elite level athletes can be recelebrated as you see that look of achievement come across a students face, where they fought an inner battle to become better and did not give up until fruitful. We define success in HUB as demonstrating GRIT and perseverance in the face of mental and physical obstacles.
