Calisthenics Group Class

Calisthenics, or “Street workouts”, as it is sometimes referred to, is one of the fastest growing disciplines globally due to the amazing results achieved in a short period of time and with minimal equipment.  The word calisthenics comes from the ancient Greek words kalós (καλός), which means “beauty”, and sthénos (σθένος), meaning “strength”. Calisthenics can be most easily defined as a system of using one’s own body weight to workout the entire body.  The skills you learn in our programs will stay with you for life and can be practiced almost anywhere.

Our standard calisthenics class lasts an hour and is broken down as follows:

  1. Warm-up and then stretching and mobility work to prepare the body to safely workout.
  2. Endurance body-weight circuits.  We typically do several sets of body weight circuits.  Each circuit consists of 2 – 4 different exercises.  Our instructor demonstrates the movements and ensures each person knows how to safely and properly perform each one.   Adjustments are given to make the exercise easier or harder depending on each  student’s skill level and needs.
  3. Strength circuits.  Similar to above, these circuits usually involve fewer repetitions that are more challenging.  As above, our instructor ensures each student has the exercise scaled to what they can comfortably handle.
  4. Conditioning.  We finish with a few minutes of vigorous cardiovascular or abdominal conditioning.
  5. Cool down and stretching.  Lastly, our instructor leads the group cool down and stretching to prevent injury and help with recovery.

X-treme Stretch

The body depends on movement to remain healthy. Coming Soon – Mekanix will offer classes specifically focused on helping with your body’s flexibility and mobility.

X-treme Stretch classes are coming soon!

Cardio Conditioning

We round out strength and flexibility training with cardio training. Classes have the rigor of a bootcamp, but without the unfriendliness associated with military style order barking.

Cardio Conditioning classes focus on circuit training designed to elevate your heart rate and improve your aerobic conditioning.  Our classes include pushups, plyometrics, HIIT (high intensity interval training), partner training, and other elements to raise your fitness level.

Why Calisthenics

Simply put, calisthenics is a fun and safe way to get fit, build muscle, and tone your physique.  Most fitness enthusiasts arrive at calisthenics after becoming frustrated with regular gyms and mainstream fitness programs.

Calisthenics is nothing new, yet the fundamentals are often forgotten and overlooked.

Calisthenics exercise can also concentrate on specific areas of the body, so you can look to sculpture your physique whatever you want.

Calisthenics is a simple, natural style of exercise focused around making your body work the way it should and finely tuning it’s performance.

Calisthenics is a high-impact form of exercise that can be performed with no additional equipment so you can train at home, in a hotel, on a beach, at a gym or practically any other place.

Calisthenics can be done anywhere and the skills you will learn in our class can be done in any location without the use of equipment.

Calisthenics build solid muscles mass and increase general strength all over. Unlike lifting regular weights where muscles can become isolated, leaving the surrounding muscles weak, calisthenics brings together your entire body giving you a strong athletic and natural look.

I have trained under a number of different programs over the years, but Calisthenics is the most superior of system I have tried. Although I have only been training Calisthenics for a few months, my strength, flexibility and body control has increased substantially.  I was amazed at how quickly they helped me with something as simple as tripling the number of strict pull-ups I could do.  And the strength results translated into my physique, too!  Maybe best of all is I haven’t had an injury in months, something that was common practice in some of the other programs I have attended such as CrossFit and powerlifting. Love what you’re doing Mekanix!  To everyone else, I highly recommend giving this gym a go!
