Build Functional Strength

Maintaining strength and flexibility, particularly as we age, can be challenging.

To keep doing all the things we want to do in life, we need the strength to keep our joints protected and the flexibility to safely perform common tasks. 

The Introduction to Calisthenics Workshop is an excellent opportunity to workout in a welcoming outdoor setting and learn lifelong training skills and technique to build functional strength.

What Actually Is It?

Calisthenics is a form of body-weight training with which you can increase your strength, mobility, proprioception, co-ordination and balance. All without the use of weights.

Do You Have To Be Very Strong To Start Calisthenics?


In our classes, each student has their own variation of an exercise which is dependent upon their strength level.

Let’s use push-ups as an example.

One person, who cannot yet do a floor push-up, may perform incline push-ups, another person may be performing push-ups on the ground, and a more advanced student may perform a one arm push-up.

We have similar progression trees for many other exercises. 

This method of adjusting exercise difficulty is what we do, so that we can have people of varying strength levels in the same classes.

 By giving each student their own variation of an exercise there are a few major benefits.

1. Everyone can still train together as a community.
2. A high level of safety is maintained.
3. Everyone has an exercise that is enjoyable but still challenging enough to encourage muscular growth.

Hear From Attendees At Our Previous Workshops

“I attended a handstand workshop last weekend. The workshop was very thorough and progresses step by step. I learnt a lot from the coaches and also other attendees. It was a great atmosphere. At the end of the workshop I almost did a handstand! I hope to join back as a member so I could do a proper one.”

Ben Yi

“I recently attended the handstand workshop conducted by Nathan, it was a super awesome workshop, Nathan broke down the handstand and did a bunch of drills using techniques I had previously struggled with, came back feeling a lot more confident and already see a marked improvement in my handstand attempts, the biggest being to reduce the dependency on the wall and trying the Handstand in an open area!

Thanks and looking forward to mastering the hand stand soon!”
