As far as a training programme is concerned, only you know where your areas of weakness are - research exercises to target those specifically, but don't neglect the rest of your body.
Advice wise - take it at your own speed. It doesn't matter what other people can do, only go for stuff you're comfortable with. Train as much as you feel able, don't push yourself too far as that's when you'll hurt yourself.

Well what you want to do is cut the excess fat, build efficient muscle, and learn the skills and techniques.
You do this by learning all the basic movements and drilling them.
Include exercises and conditioning to build the muslces used in parkour.
Eat a healthy diet, to help cut the unwanted fat and build your muscles.
So set up a schedule for yourself. Start off by training 3 days a week. Train the basics all three days. Then at the end of two of those days include a few workouts, like pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and etc. If you perform those in a circuit you will burn even more fat in less time.
So just start off small and simple, then gradually build up. As long as you stick with it, you will learn parkour and get in awesome shape.
Write out a schedule today, that way you keep your self organized and on track.
firstly, you should not forget about warming up exercises. Spend about half an hour loosening up, then try to perform any tricks you wish. Roll, monkey, accuracy, dash, cat, tic tac, handstand and so on will be a good base for beginner.
