Get EVERYTHING out of your Calisthenics Journey
We are Yannick and Michael and our mission is to inspire as many people as possible with Calisthenics. We want to show that Calisthenics gives you a challenge and that this sport helps you to get fit in a fun way.
Our passion for fitness started in 2012 when we focussed on weightlifting. After a while, we no longer found this challenging. so we switched from fitness to Calisthenics at the beginning of 2016: the best decision of our life!
We improvised a Calisthenics rack in our backyard and started with the Basics. This was more difficult than expected. After much practice and failure, we started to master the Basics of Calisthenics step by step.
Looking back, we would have appreciated it to have a clear Calisthenics Course at the time that allowed us to learn the Basics stepwise with instructional videos. That’s why we’ve worked on this course for over one year to provide you with all the knowledge and tools together in one clear platform!

Ruben Kruijs (23 years)
It is the first time that I follow a program where I actually see results. The explanation, the videos, and the support during the program were great. Besides improving my physical condition, the exercises really helped me to get a better posture in general. I am happy that I chose a program from Calisthenics Family.
Eva van der Horst (33 years)
During the program, I saw myself making progress every week. Every week I felt that I was getting fitter and stronger. I have really pushed my limits. In 8 weeks I went from a beginner level to doing exercises that really amaze me. Speaking from experience: the Calisthenics Family programs are also really good for women!
Jules Appeldoorn (18 years)
Calisthenics has completely changed my life. I never had the energy or motivation to exercise, but this has changed because of the challenge and energy I get from this sport every day. Not only physically, but I also enjoy my workouts much more! Furthermore, Michael & Yannick always answer my questions quickly. Thanks, guys!
What others say about the Course
Joris ten Hagen
I wanted to start with bodyweight training but I didn’t know what to do exactly. I have been playing soccer all my life, but now I also want to become stronger. With the help of this super comprehensive course and especially the instructional videos, I know exactly what to do. Furthermore, it is very motivating to work with logs to keep track of your progress. I can’t wait to move on to the next level!
What Michael & Yannick have created here is fantastic. The course is so extensive. The amount of practical education and instructional videos in combination with the workout plan is perfect. I am sure that this will help me a lot during my Calisthenics Journey. Especially the different levels for the exercises are great. I would recommend it to everyone. Thank you, guys!
It’s great to follow this course, everything with our own bodyweight. I have only just started but it is very challenging. Clear explanations and instructional videos from these young guys. I am a bit older myself, but you can easily start with this course at home. The workout plan setup and schedules/logs to keep track of everything and follow your progress are also great. With this course, you can definitely make progress for a year. Can’t wait to do this outside too.
I already started with calisthenics via the ‘Full Journey’, but the Basics Course is a very useful addition and a must-have for every enthusiast and/or beginner. This course makes you aware of the necessary basics which you shouldn’t forget. It is clear that Michael and Yannick have put a lot of time and effort into this! The many videos are clear and useful. If you have doubts about the purchase, I can say that it is actually a no brainer for me!

In recent years we have noticed that most beginners lack the necessary knowledge about various basic exercises and the correct form, technique, and execution.
We’ve also seen that most people want to move forward too quickly when the basics aren’t there yet, which ultimately leads to frustration, less progress, and injuries. We want to prevent this by providing you all the necessary knowledge so that you can start with Calisthenics in a safe, responsible, and effective way.
What will you achieve after following the Basics Course?
- You understand all the basic exercises and know how to perform them with the correct form and technique.
- You know exactly how to adjust the difficulty of each exercise with different progressions and regressions. In this way, you can make the exercise easier or more difficult.
- You avoid beginner mistakes and understand the important aspects of each exercise which will improve your progress and reduce the risk of pain and injuries.

The fact that you train with your own body weight makes it a very safe, responsible, and accessible way to exercise at almost any age and level. Didn’t you exercise before, but do you want to get fitter? That’s no problem at all. You don’t need to be able to do push-ups, pull-ups, squats, or similar exercises before starting with the Calisthenics Basics Course.

- Your email address will be added to our exclusive member list. This means that we answer your questions within 48 hours on working days. Questions can be about anything, eg: specific exercises, replacement exercises for injuries, training routines, etc.
- Send us videos of specific exercises you are performing. We give you personal feedback. In this way, you make faster progress because you can improve your technique immediately.
Can I create muscle mass or lose weight with the Calisthenics Basics Course?
Sure! Some people think that it is not possible to build a lot of muscle mass by exercising with your own body weight, but that is completely wrong! You can build muscle mass with Calisthenics and create an athletic body. We have been doing Calisthenics for 5 years (and no more weightlifting) and are still muscular. Right😉?
How often do I have to train per week?
The program consists of 3 Full Body Workouts. We recommend you to train 3 times a week with approximately 48 hours of rest. Would you rather train more or less? No problem! You have the freedom to follow the course at your own pace. You can keep track of your progress with the logs.
I already have experience with Calisthenics, does this Course have added value for me?
Definitely! With the Basics Course, you will learn everything about the correct technique and form, down to the smallest details, but you will also learn a lot about Calisthenics itself and the movement patterns in general. After completing this course, you will make faster progress with your Calisthenics Journey as you will recognize common mistakes and learn how to follow a workout routine effectively.
In addition, the Workout Plan of the Basics Course is focused on building strength and muscle mass which will make you stronger in general. This allows you to perform Calisthenics Skills a lot better.
What is the difference between Calisthenics Basics and the Full Journey?
The Calisthenics Basics Course is a course platform where you get access to all the knowledge and tools to learn how to apply the basic exercises of Calisthenics in a safe and effective way. The Full Journey focuses more on learning Calisthenics Skills such as the Handstand and Human Flag. You will find the basic exercises of the Calisthenics Basics Course also in all our other programs such as the Full Journey.
In order to make faster progress with the skills and to reduce the risk of injuries, it is advisable to first master the basics 100%. With the Basics Course, you will learn everything about the technique and execution of these exercises in detail.
Do you already have the Full Journey or another Workout Plan? Then it is definitely worth the investment to take your training level and knowledge to a higher level by starting with Calisthenics Basics!
Do I get lifetime access?
Absolutely. You only pay once and after your purchase you have unlimited access. Don’t you have time due to circumstances? No problem. You have the freedom to follow the course at your own pace. You decide how much time you take. In this way, you can take it easy when necessary or do more workouts when you are ready for it.
What workout equipment do I need?
Don’t you have access to a gym or Calisthenics park? Then you will need the following equipment:
- A pull-up bar. You can buy one that you can hang on the door.
- Parallel bars or a set of rings for doing dips. You can also do this on a sofa or chair in the beginning.
- Resistance bands (to make the exercises easier). We will have our own CALIFAM Resistance Bands in our webshop soon.
- A table, couch, box, parallettes, or other things which you can use to make the exercises easier or more challenging for yourself. We will explain to you how to use them 😉.
Can I pay in installments?
We are working hard to make this possible. Are you not able to pay everything at once? Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then we will discuss the options with you.
