Tempest Freerunning Academy features Mario tribute

The recently opened Tempest Freerunning Academy in Los Angeles has put together a promotional video of its gym that hits several notes obligating us to write about it. The fantastic feats of athleticism in the clip begin with various free runners flipping, climbing and jumping across a set inspired by the 8-bit world of Super Mario Bros.

The rest of the video just fills us with jealous awe, considering the closest we'll probably ever get to pulling off some of the featured stunts is when we play Mirror's Edge or the upcoming Brink. Actually, we take that back. We could totally do the stunts, but we'd have to call ahead to the hospital and pre-order a room first.
