DUY MINH NGUYEN

Minh is an HCMC local and before he came to push you would mostly have found him in the streets and parks of District 1 practicing Parkour with his friends. “Parkour made me flexible and gave me stamina; I’ve never been one to sit in a gym pushing weights around but I like sport and one day I saw an ad for Push and thought ‘a new sport? Why not?’”.

Last December Minh became an instructor and at Push and combines it with his work as a 3D animator and designer. As well as enjoying the climbing Minh comes to Push to practice his English so don’t be shy - walk on up and talk to him.
