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:
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!
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.

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!
