Calisthenics Classes

The calisthenics classes are given by both Michael & Yannick

During the classes we work on all different aspects of calisthenics. We will work on calisthenics skills such as the handstand, the backlever, the frontlever, the human flag &  the planche. Next to that we also work on bodyweight strength exercises such as the muscle up, the handstand push-up, the L-sit to Handstand or other push & pull movements. Next to that we always train the core and do basic exercises!

Personal guidance is what you can expect during the training session! So if you need any tips about your form or technique, this training is perfect and doesn’t cost you too much!

At the age of 15 I started lifting weights in the gym. I have always been fascinated about human strength. During that time I have been focusing more on strength building rather than bodybuilding. After a few years of training like this I noticed that I gained a lot of strength but I wasn’t flexible at all. I wanted to actually do something with the strength that I gained instead of just lifting weights. That’s where Calisthenics came in and it literally changed my life. During the last 2 years of calisthenics training I really got passionate about this sport! That is why I want to share the beauty of this sport and help people out with their own journey.
