The Overview

What is our training philosophy?

We believe that our bodies are designed to move us around and complete many daily tasks. Think about this for a moment, if you leave a car for too long without use it will cause it to rust and begin to decay. Similarly, we are not designed to sit all day. However, in our modern lives we spend on average more than 8 hours sitting. In fact we sit more then we sleep, this just proves how poor our habits have become.  We live in times when sitting is considered the smoking of our generation. Sadly, inactivity is the major public health concern of our century and cause many illnesses such as diabetes and obesity.

Why we believe in body weight and minimal equipment training?

We believe in functional body-weight training for the general population and the usage of as little equipment as possible. Our priorities are to promote stronger bodies with improved performance allowing us to become more functional in daily life.  We are huge fans of progressive functional strength, which refers to how well an exercise translates to the real world. A lean and healthy body is more sustainable and cheaper to maintain in the long term. The body weight type of training is scientifically proven to be more beneficial for our daily lives than using a gym and decreases our chances of injury.

Why we recommend body-weight exercises?

Our experience tells us that there are too many people who cannot do a normal body squat, push up, or pull up!  And they are attempting barbell squats, bench presses, overhead presses and even worse dead-lifts.  Without the proper foundation these exercises can result in severe injuries, especially for beginners,and yet this can be seen inmost of the gyms. 

Why great outdoors?

 We believe in aesthetic and clean body weight  and not in the dirty body building exercises.  Our training begins with the basic exercises, that are tailored to personal needs and develop to include outdoor activities such as camping, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, trekking and many more. The body-weight exercises give us the strength to maximize on the great outdoors, which is proven to help us to connect with nature, increase motivation and improve performance.

Is the training programme standardized or do they vary by coach?

We like creativity and flexibility as it helps to avoid plateaus and boredom. Our programmes are diverse, each coach specializes in a different area of training such as street workout, calisthenics , circuits, HIIT, dance and mixed martial arts. While the foundation of all our training is body weight and functional training each coach brings their own style and creativity to their training routines. 

Class structure

Each class will start with motivation and positivity.  Working with your wellness guru you will create your own mantra to bring a focus to your session.

This will be followed by a warm up of 10-15 minutes to prepare your muscles, joints and mind- we use a dynamic and specific whole body warm-up that will prepare your body for what is coming next.

The main session will be a series of the most innovative, creative, efficient body-weight exercise routines.  The routine is designed to be an holistic and balanced session that targets strength and endurance as well as all parts of the body.  We strive to avoid imbalance in training by merely focusing on one part of the body. With our very adaptable and creative exercise routines the main session is highly customized to your needs, body type and fitness level. 

We will finish with a cool down of 5-10 minutes to send a message to your body to relax.  These will be a series of exercises moving from high-intensity to low-intensity to help reduce your heart rate to prepare you to stop.

As part of the cool down we recommend stretch and self massage. We will teach you to stretch every major muscle group after every session. We encourage you to use massage to release tension in muscles and help them to relax even more and we also guide you on how to use foam rollers to self massage.

Why Calisthenics?

We are huge fans of calisthenics, which translates from the Greek "chalos" meaning beautiful and "sthenos" meaning strength. It's a beautiful way of training to become healthy, lean and powerful and you can do it anywere and anytime.  It is a series of exercises that relies on the weight of the body, this means that you are never lifting more than you should be lifting as you are using your own weight to develop core strength and endurance.  The exercises gives you a real sense of your own body and promotes mindfullness in your daily life.  Your body is the only tool you need to partake in calisthenics.Connect your mind and body!

Why street workout?

Recently calisthenics has become associated with the rapidly growing international street workout sport, which consists of various exercises, mostly performed with very little or no equipment. It's a very adaptable and creative way to get fit anywhere, anytime, just lift, pull and stretch your own body. It's the bomb! Effectively, street workout is a type of activity or body weight training which combines various disciplines such as athletics, calisthenics, urban calisthenics, isometric static holds, gymnastics and other sports. Strength is practiced by doing isometric exercises such as human flag, planche, back and front lever, muscle up etc. Calisthenics and street workout gives us a better knowledge of our own bodies and develops a more mindful exercise.

What are the benefits?

As you already aware, the benefits of our training are endless. Combine it with healthy and clean nutrition and plenty of sleep and you will notice positive experiences in your body, mind and spirit.

You will see:

  • A lean, beautiful and strong body
  • Improved cardiovascular and muscular endurance, strength and power
