Tracy Barksdale, who teaches our Groundwork Conditioning class, is a long time movement nerd. She was a dancer ages 3-18, and in adulthood she decided to broaden her scope. She became a MovNat coach in 2012, the first person in Austin to attain this certification. She started training parkour in addition, and became a parkour coach in 2013, going on to co-found the first parkour/natural movement gym in Austin. Tracy coached anyone from age 3-73 in how to become a more practical, efficient, and healthy mover throughout any environment.
Tracy then went on to become a licensed massage therapist. She specialized in injury rehab and corrective exercise. Tracy has been moving, coaching and doing bodywork with people pretty much ever since then, with the exception being a period of time when she had her son in 2016!
Tracy has found a new passion in Krav Maga. Come see her at Groundwork Conditioning every Saturday at 12:30pm!
