What Is Calisthenics?
Calisthenics is a form of strength and mobility training that uses your body weight as resistance. It's a great way to build strength, muscle and endurance while improving balance, coordination and body awareness.
Calisthenics ranges from beginner-friendly exercises such as push-ups, pull-ups, squats and leg raises to advanced exercises such as handstands, muscle-ups, planche and front levers.
You can easily scale the training based on your current level and your specific goals. Calisthenics in Amsterdam continues get more popular, as more people switch from the gym to the calisthenics park.
