Calisthenics uses bodyweight to create resistance
The power of using your own body
The word calisthenics comes from the ancient Greek words kállos (κάλλος), which means "beauty" (to emphasize the aesthetic pleasure that derives from the perfection of the human body), and sthenos (σθένος), meaning "strength" (great mental strength, courage, strength, and determination).
Bunny is a qualified Calisthenics coach. Look out for ad hoc workshops working on bodyweight skills in Andover.
Calisthenics builds full body strength. Pushing, pulling and statics with limited equipment.
Calisthenic exercises will increase strength, fitness, muscle tone and flexibility. Using different movements such as pulling, pushing and static holds using the own body weight for resistance/weight.
Using minimal equipment such as bars, gymnastic rings and resistance bands to build full body strength.
Incorporating exercises such as:
Squats of various types
Some of the static holds you may of heard of:
Back and Front Lever
L sit / V sit
What I love about Calisthenics is how accessible it is to all levels. There is always a progression or a regression for every person.
Joining our regular workshop once a month will give you ideas and tips for you to go away and practice at home with the opportunity to work 121 as well with one of the coaches. The workshops will include mobility, a range of exercises including a reps section, skills and stretching. Each workshop will include the fundamental elements of calisthenics but have a slightly different focus to each workshop so you are always learning and building strength no matter of your level. You will have 2 coaches on hand and a maximum of 12 spaces are available so you can have a good amount of attention.
Bunny and Lisa will take you through a structured class and leave you feeling stronger than you did before. Bunny and Lisa are both qualified level 3 Personal Trainers specialising in bodyweight training and together we combine and share our knowledge and experience with you.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Thank you Bunny, it was great to see what I could do. Thanks again for making it accessible and not too scary.
I have been wanting to have a go at Calisthenics for a while but didn’t think I was strong enough. Finally gave it a go at the end of last year and I’m hooked, Bunny’s tuition and coaching makes you feel comfortable with all the moves and and each move can be adapted to your own level. Looking forward to progressing throughout 2023
Great coaching, small class and attention to detail. With small adjustments and corrections for form I have learnt so much already.
Bunny has a private WhatsApp group she has shared videos with us so we can keep working on what we learn in the workshop.
Every workshop is different.
Having always been interested in sport and keeping fit, I have tried most forms of exercise and fitness training over the years but never Calisthenics. My wife is part of Bunny's Pilates class and we have both been a part of Johnathon's weekly fitness classes. When offered the chance to join Bunny's calisthenics class I decided to give it a go.
Not sure what to expect, it proved an excellent sessions accommodating a wide range of abilities and ages. The lessons introduced techniques and skills cumulatively ensuring a feasible challenge for everyone, plus tips and hints for practicing. It was definitely not easy nor impossible. I was left with a sense of achievement and desire to improve. Bunny's approach puts you at ease, is very positive and the small classes ensures personalisation with attention to detail. I really enjoyed the 2hrs of instruction and look forward to joining the next class.
