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:
Active Recovery classes consist of low to moderate intensity exercises to promote blood flow and mobilize the primary joints. This class will help improve dynamic flexibility and prevent injury.
We believe mobility and flexibility are so important to overall physical fitness, we incorporate them into every class. Our active recovery classes focus on mobility and flexibility 100%. These classes are perfect for preparing your body for more advanced body weight movements while also making your body more robust to avoid injury. Active Recovery classes are perfect to counteract the effects of sitting at a desk all day long. They’re also a great class if you’re looking for a lower impact class to keep your body moving. Don’t confuse low-impact with easy, though. Active Recovery classes will challenge you and provide a great workout.

Ooofff these guys nailed it. Nothing like this anywhere, and I have been a fitness junky for almost two decades. I have had memberships at several gyms like Equinox, Lifetime Fitness, various yoga studios, LA fitness, 24 hrs, Crossfit boxes, etc. I knew I was needing something and I was ready to step up my game so I came to check Mekanix out. It has completely surpassed my expectations. It’s just a cool place. I have gotten so strong and I can’t wait til I can do some of the awesome stuff some of the people in here can do. It’s a fun environment, it’s super inviting and I don’t feel like I’m a number. It’s like having a personal trainer and working out with your friends at the same time. The classes are small and intimate and you get plenty attention. Here are highlights of my experience:
Joined a few months ago and have had much progress! Knowledgeable trainers know how to prepare you for more advanced movements and keep you injury free. As with any training program you get out what you put in. But the workouts are different from what I was used to so they’ve helped me get out of the plateau. Keep the gains coming!
Great new workout concept for me that is very challenging! Saturday 9AM class certainly sets the tone for my weekend! Not to mention the instructors and class mates are very friendly and welcoming!
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!
