About Calisthenics

Would you like to defy gravity?

Calisthenics is all about building strength and skill through the use of bodyweight exercises. We aim to promote the physical and mental well-being of all our members.

At University of Portsmouth Calisthenics everyone is welcome to train with us regardless of their experience or skill level. All our sessions are run by our members who have knowledge and experience in a number of disciplines including gymnastics, martial arts, athletics, yoga, bodybuilding and personal training which makes training informative and fun. We are an easy-going friendly bunch of students who thrive on supporting each other to reach the various goals we set ourselves throughout the year.

At UoP Calisthenics we help our members increase muscular strength, train and improve flexibility, mobility, muscular endurance and overall fitness. You may even learn how to handstand along the way. You'll learn how to properly prepare for and recover from sessions to ensure you are getting the most from your training.

We use this array of equipment to help tailor workouts to our members and ensure they are gaining the most from our sessions. From pullup rigs and parallel bars to resistance bands, gymnastics rings and much more.
