The FREE School Social event took place on 14 June 2020 and looked a little different due to the Corona Virus outbreak.
Something that’s really important to us at the School of Calisthenics is you guys; the community of awesome people that have joined us on the journey of redefining our impossible.
We not only believe in giving back to our amazing community but also want to create opportunities for events that allow connection and friendships to form and develop within the community.
That’s what our annual FREE School of Calisthenics Social is all about – just this year we did it online via Instagram LIVE!
Community is an integral part of the School of Calisthenics
Although we couldn’t meet in person, here in our home town of Nottingham, we had a blast via Instagram Live as we brought our podcast to life for you to join in from the comfort of your own home.
For the School of Calisthenics PODCAST LIVE we brought together some of the best guests from our popular (5*) podcast for you to be able to ask questions and interact with and most importantly get to experience the different things each awesome guest brings to the party!
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be updating this page adding the video recordings with each guest from the Podcast Live.

Tony’s mantra is just because we can’t all live in nature, doesn’t mean we can’t live naturally. He’s an advocate of ground-based living (no chairs in his house) and bare foot running (he’s ran from Lands end to John O-Groats barefoot and nasal breathing the whole way). You get the chance to ask questions about his philosophy on natural lifestyle in the modern word, get tips on barefoot running and try out some of Tony ‘ground-based living’ postures whilst you watch at home.
