I have a belief that less is more with training. With my clients I push to them the importance of calisthenics and movement. Our own bodies alone make up the gym that we need to use the most. That being said, I believe that through movement/calisthenics we can find a great carry over to other areas of training, kettlebells, track work etc. My idea of movement/calisthenics does not fall short of only using the bar or gymnastic rings. I try to look outside the box, using stairs, hills, walls, handtrucks, hard wood floors. My ideas might seem to some as “unconventional” but my workouts always can answer the question of why and what will it benefit. Movement heals, which is why as we age it is the upmost importance we train to play!
