Only Calisthenics - All Hype or Can it Work?

Some people will only perform calisthenics.

Some people will never touch barbells or dumbbells.

Some people believe you hit a wall eventually when you don't allow yourself to get under the bar.

Jon Hinds would wipe the mat up with my face if we grappled, and Jon never touches a barbell or dumbbell. Sometimes he uses Russian Kettlebells.

He uses a lot of D Balls, performs tons of climbing / pulling on ropes and poles and of course uses LifeLine bands.

When Jon and I get together on November 3rd and 4th it's gonna be madness I tell you :)

Jon will bring his A game to the seminar and so will I.

Our philosophy of natural movements are very much the same, except I do a lot of heavy barbell work combined with the bodyweight movements.

Jon's angle on Natural training is going to floor you - push ups, pull ups, squats - these are all very basic exercises that many tout as being the greatest calisthenic movements, but Jon has boat loads on new angles that come with these movements, and if you're beat up and banged up from years of training or maybe just from incorrect training, you need to see this.

The center beam in my gym is inspired by Jon's Monkey Bar Gymnasium - rings, ropes, thick handled pull up handles....and next we'll be getting a rope from the wall to the beam! Inspired by you know who!

Imagine what you'll be able to do with your own training and / or the training of your clients after learning our most effective methods?

I've traveled across the country to see and hear specific Coaches speak and I've called and e mailed other top Coaches thousands of times, all in an effort to learn more and improve myself.

The results of my clients depends on what I know and they are limited by what I do NOT know.

What about you?

Do you know everything?

Or, do you truly know enough?

We've already got people flying in from the west coast, the carolinas,'s filling up quickly :)

I can't wait to learn from Jon....I'll be utilizing all his methods asap with my own athletes and clients.

Saturday Jonny is on, Sunday, we're both gonna unleash our methods in program design and how we use the odd objects and implements.

Jon and I always hear people saying, "I wish I knew this back when I was....."

Well, now is your time to take action and stop procrastinating. It's also time to live without regrets.

I know you'll take action, maybe now....maybe later.
