What is Calisthenics?
Calisthenics is an anaerobic training system, which increases bodily strength without using machinery or external weights.
You can do it anywhere, anytime. The only thing you need is your body.
The weight of your own body is used for resistance or perhaps the body of a teammate. No fancy equipment required to keep in shape.
This fitness system includes exercises, which bring impressive results in muscle growth and strengthen the entire body, always with symmetry and harmony. Resistance training using heavyweights and other equipment can damage the joints and connective tissue like your ligaments and tendons. However, it poses no such risk and develops your body strength in proportion to your natural muscular system.
All movements are authentic and natural.
But beyond the strength and beauty of a symmetrically trained body, Calisthenic gymnastics improves and develops skills such as balance, flexibility, endurance, coordination and physical and spiritual control.
It is suitable for all
It does not require prior experience or athletic background. Exercises are scalable and everyone – regardless of their lifestyle and athletic experience – can start with simple and easy exercises and gradually progress to more complex and demanding ones. It is suitable for men and women of all ages, and all body types regardless of the current weight or fitness level. It is even recommended for post-injury recovery.
