Calisthenics - versatile workout for every training goal

FitShark Logo short

Calisthenics comes from two Greek words: kalos, beautiful, and sthenos, strength. This name pretty much sums up what this sport is all about. Calisthenics, which is also often dubbed a ‘street workout’ owing to the fact that it commonly takes place outside, is a creative form of training that takes place with minimal equipment. Instead, through body tension and your bodyweight, complex training sessions can be carried out. Building up strength and having fun when training are always main priorities.
