The word Calisthenics originated from the greek ancient words "kalos" (meaning beauty) and "sthenos" (meaning strength). It consists of bodyweight exercises yet functional at the same time as it involves a variety of gross motor movements—running, standing, grasping, pushing, etc. — often performed rhythmically and with minimal equipment. Core Collective works with our instructors to curate an array of interesting Calistenics classes to help build and strengthen your core.
Don’t know what Calisthenics is all about? Start from the basics and learn how to work your entire body in unison as we explore basic movements, with emphasis on form and control. Increase body awareness and functional strength in this bodyweight-only class.
This class will improve your strength and explosive power. With the help of gymnastic rings and paralettes, this class is designed to work the entire body in unison as we explore movements, with emphasis on form and control. By using techniques like time under tension and explosive action, you will develop strength to move on to advanced calisthenics movements like planche, front lever and handstands.
Build functional strength to progress into more advanced movements and improve overall performance. Core 360 will hit every core muscle that runs from the shoulders to the quads, including the lower back, hips and glutes. With the use of dynamic and static core exercises using the parallettes, gymnastic rings as well as floor exercises, this class builds core stability, functional posture, dynamic motion and flexibility.
