Her skill level was noted by her cousin Yousuf Al Gurg, who helped Amal achieve her goal to become a certified Parkour trainer.
Away from her life as a full-time graphic designer, Amal’s Parkour classes demonstrate the fundamentals of the freestyle sport that involves controlling movement, running, climbing, flipping and jumping over obstacles.
For Amal, Parkour is a form of expression and the way one flows through movement. Apart from the physical aspect, she helps her students build confidence and overcome their fears associated with training.
As the first female Emirati Parkour trainer, her aim is to inspire more people to try Parkour and to grow the Parkour community in the UAE.
