Personal Training for Weightloss 

Not quite ready for calisthenics training?

 

Does calisthenics seem intangible to you? Do you see all the crazy stuff calisthenics practitioners do, and you look out in awe thinking, “that could never be me?” The reality is calisthenics, like any discipline, takes time to perfect. Despite what you may think, it’s super practical precisely because it is so adaptable – everything can be scaled down to suit your needs.

Although it is my opinion that bodyweight-style calisthenics training is the best way to train for tangible fitness results, you may be of a different opinion. Calisthenics is not for everyone.

Perhaps you have different fitness goals. Maybe you’d like to lose some weight before diving into the world of calisthenics or develop some basic balance and motor skills? Maybe muscle ups aren’t all that important to you and you just want to keep up with the kids?

There is more than one way to train and we try our best to cater for everyone. In addition to our calisthenics-specific services, we also offer weight-loss and general conditioning personal training.

Cardiovascular training & Boxing for weightloss

 

Cardiovascular training is a great way to smash out some exercise and is particularly accommodating to beginners. You will definitely break a sweat, but you’ll love yourself for it.

High intensity interval training (HIIT), also known as Tabata, is the current standard for cardiovascular training and is both the most efficient, and most effective cardiovascular regiment out there. Forget running for an entire hour to lose the caloric equivalent of a candy bar. It’s boring, ineffective and can damage yours knees in the long run.

The idea behind HIIT is that you do exercise for short bursts of high intensity (ideally anaerobically i.e. 85-100% of your heart rate max). There are many different types of HIIT. There are many different exercises that can go into HIIT, but they are generally selected for their capacity to burn calories as quickly as possible.

Kick boxing inspired boxercise is a fantastic inclusion into any HIIT session and can really ramp up the number of calories you burn. It can be paired up with other exercises to create a dynamic, fun and ever changing exercise routine, challenging both the mind and the body.

What is calisthenics

 

 Calisthenics (also known as Street Workout) Hybridises street movements originating in Eastern Europe and many other disciplines including gymnastics, calisthenics, breakdance and yoga.

There are 2 dominant forces in calisthenics: freestyle and statics: Freestyle is comprised of a large array of high flying skills, that can be stringed together to make calisthenics freestyle routines. Statics is about raw strength and involves hoisting the body into fantastically awesome gravity defying suspensions.

 

Answers to your questions
Where are you located?

We train outdoors in St Kilda and surroudning areas, but there are opportunities to train indoors at other locations if bad weather and/or if you need the mats;)

Do you have equipment?

Yes, we have access to resistance bands and chalk. The playground has high bars and parallel bars. The only thing you need to bring is yourself. 

Do I need to be super fit?

Absolutely NOT. Calisthenics is for everyone regardless of strength and experience. Like everything, it will take some time, but progress will be much faster than you think.

Are you certified?

Yes! I have a Certificate III and IV in fitness, and additionally a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree with very relevant anatomy and muscular physiology units.

I came in brand new to calisthenics and din’t know what to expect. I had always wanted to get strong, but never enjoyed weights. Vic made me realise that there is so much you can do with just your own body weight! I’m now in the best physical shape of my life, thanks buddy!

Vic has made me enjoy fitness again. Never been a fan of the gym, it’s boring! I found out about calisthenics on Youtube but didn’t know much about it. Vic helped me appreciate the basic movement patterns and now I have my eyes set on all the big moves. Fantastic trainer, very motivational!

Axel Menzy

My goal in starting training with Vic was to learn how to do the muscle up. At the time I could barely do 5 pull ups. With consistent training for 3 months I can now do one without the band! I’m absolutely stoked by the results. Vic is super knowledgeable and focused on my goals and I cannot recommend him enough!
