The street workout trend from the USA

Calisthenics is an excellent alternative to the gym. The equipment is installed in parks, where you usually work on whole groups of muscles at the same time. The difference with this functional outdoor training is you exercise with nothing but your own bodyweight.

Gradually, more and more street workout climbing frames are appearing in Berlin’s cityscape. At Gleisdreieck-Park, Böklerpark, the Poststadion, Wuhlheide and many other places, calisthenics fans can push themselves to their limits with pull-ups, push-ups and handstands.
