Unlock Your Strength Potential

Get strong whilst training in an iconic Sydney setting

Calisthenics in the Sydney CBD

Knowing how BEST to progress a bodyweight exercise can be hard, adding reps & sets just doesn’t cut it.

This can be frustrating and may leave you feeling powerless and unmotivated.

You shouldn’t need to motivate yourself AND understand progressions AND build a program!

That’s what we’ve done since 2013, let us do it for you.

Nathan and his team are the most wonderful and professional group that you're ever likely to meet. You will hit all of... your goals and have a laugh doing it. Amazing community too, friendly and fun with none of the macho grossness of some other fitness options.read more

I have been training at MPC for about 4 months now and have seen a quick improvement in my strength. The group training... sessions are great, they are the right amount of fun and also keep me accountable and on track with my goals. Dave is super knowledgeable and ensures there is always a regression or progression exercise depending on how you are tracking / injuries / goals, meaning classes are always productive. There is also a great variety of classes to choose from. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to see some progress in their training.read more

I've trained with MPC for a couple of years, mainly at Observatory Hill, and it's awesome. Noticed the progress after a... few weeks. Great atmosphere, especially Saturday mornings. Give it a month and you wont want to stopread more

Maximum Potential Calisthenics is a great crew of knowledgeable, dedicated and genuine trainers with a robust program... that can fit to any fitness level.You'll learn a wide range of body-weight exercises you can do without gym equipment, improve your mobility and flexibility as well as learn some advanced hand balancing.I can say under Dave and the team I saw more improvement in my strength, mobility and general fitness in a year than many years of other training.read more

I would recommend Maximum Potential Calestheniics to everyone! For myself, MPC are a great team, that keep me... motivated and challenge me to approach each day, with the idea that 'today I will do better than yesterday'. They've let me go at my own pace, yet keep encouraging me to improve on any mental or physical barriers I have, towards progression. They all also make training fun!I enjoy calestheniics for many reasons, it's outdoors but doesn't have to be outdoors.And personally I find that there's elements of meditation and art to the discipline, helping you grow stronger each day. Also, as someone who previously had one prolapsed disc in my lower back and some further nerve impingement higher up, its been a fantastic discovery to help regain my fitness. Keep it up guys. Thanks, Chris.read more

I have been training with Dave for the past 2 years and have found the small group PT sessions work very well for me,... as they are social with the benefits of having a personal trainer. The hyper strong sessions have been a game changer in increasing my overall strength and also give me a work out I always look forward tooread more

Definitely worth a try!Dave, Nathan and Anthea know how to guide you to reach your goals whatever they are. My push... ups got stronger, I can now do side to side pull ups and my dragon flag has never been this low and controlled. In addition to these, my skills are improving every week. My back lever is now solid and I'm starting to see good results from my front lever preparation too.On top of that, it's real fun working out with these guys!read more

When I first started I couldn’t do a chin-up and managed 1 pretty unconvincing push-up. Now, I could do 3 chin-ups, 20... push-ups and a 5sec free standing handstand among other things that I never dreamed of doing (like dragon pistol squats and a standing back-bend). The trainers – Dave, Nathan, Anthea and Myles – are the friendliest and most dedicated coaches. I highly highly highly recommend them.read more

I have always done my fitness routines at gyms but with Covid restrictions was looking at things I could do with just... body weight exercises and found this thing called "Calisthenics" 😊My entire experience with Maximum Potential Calisthenics has been awesome! I messaged them over the Christmas break and was surprised that they were able to organise a fitness assessment for me with Nathan in the first week of January 2021. I had a few concerns having NO previous calisthenics experience at all but Nathan was able to quickly put my mind at ease and I joined up in the second week of January.Since joining I have only gone from strength to strength over the last 2 months…- from never being able to do a handstand (fear of falling on my head) to now progressing to do a wall handstand hold (28 sec).- from never being able to do a pull up or chin up unassisted to doing 2 pull ups and 4 chin ups unassisted- my maximum deadlifts in December 2020 was 80kg, February 2021 is 130kg (attribute this largely to the improvement in the grip strength required for calisthenics)Nathan is an awesome coach and takes the time to find out your goals and weaknesses so you can improve on them. The crew that show up to Turruwul Park are awesome, very friendly and supportive. Am sure the rest of the MPC coaches are just as great and have no hesitation in recommending them if you want to give it a go (which you should). My only regret is not having done it sooner!read more

Dave, Nathan, and the rest of the crew are amazing. If you’re thinking of getting into calisthenics (which you should),... give them a go.I came in mid-September not knowing a thing. Three-ish months later, I’ve got a solid training regime and am feeling stronger than ever.The MPC crew is great at keeping check of your progress so you don’t stagnate. They also get the best out of you each session without it being a slog. The crowd that shows up (for group sessions) is a solid bunch, too.I started by reaching out to Dave via phone. He called back and patiently took in my situation. We even had a quick 1:1 session to figure out where I’d start, if I chose to join. I’d recommend doing the same.read more

Dave and all the trainers at MP Calisthenics are brilliant! The training sessions are practical, focused and... supportive. It has been great to see my strength + definition improve - week by week - all in a friendly and energised environment. The horizontal classes and headstands are the best! As the inspiring name suggests, Maximum Potential Calisthenics really helps one to achieve their maximum potential - one calisthenics exercise at a time.read more

I've been training with Dave for more than one year and a half. My progress has been great. I went from not being able... to do more than 5 chin ups to doing archer pull ups and 35kg weighted pull ups. He knows a lot about calisthenics and fitness in general while also being a great guy. All the classes have a great atmosphere since everyone is friendly. The other trainers are also great. I recommend training with Dave in either Jannali or Observatory Hill if you don't like the gym environment and/or doing weights.read more
