    Podcast Episode 115

    By David (Jacko) Jackson

    Is there more to calisthenics than meets the eye?

    It’s fair to say that when we started calisthenics some of the reasons, not all, but some were because it just looked so cool. Little did we know back then when we embarked on this journey that it would be life changing for us and so many people.

    So the ‘More than Muscle Ups Series’ is inspired by the amazing stories of you guys and girls out there that have witnessed and experienced huge changes both physically and mentally by engaging in the calisthenics community. Over the years we’ve come to realise there is so much more to the School of Calisthenics than teaching someone a muscle up. Yes things like muscle ups, handstands and human flags are cool by they are just the vehicle to help provide some positivity into everyone’s lives.

    As we share our own stories in this podcast, part one, and then the following podcasts in the series, you’ll begin to see and hear the effect it’s had on so many of us and a reminder that we all have our own struggles and stories in the background, which we often never hear about. But we can always provide, help, positivity and support to those around us.



    If you have a story you’d like to share with us as part of the ‘More Than Muscle Ups’ series then email to let us know about your story and organise you coming on the podcast.

    Thank you all so much for what you do for us and each other. You are making our worlds a better place.

    Tim + Jacko
