Story

The owners of Calisthenics Parks Gym have sacrificed everything - money and all the effort into making their gym happen - all in service of community.

James and Sarah, the owners did not had any external help, they build and funded it all themselves. James' work as a tree surgeon was the main source of income that kept the place going while it grows it's client base. Unfortunately he had an accident at work, chainsaw damaged his leg and he's been unable to works for last past weeks. That left them without funds to keep the place going until they are have enough clients.

The gym is run by a few very passionate people who believe in a duty they have towards people. They have built an amazing, well equipped Body-weight gym like UK have not seen before. Their mission is to encourage everyone to become active, learn to use their body weight and have fun in the process. Now we can do something to help, keep building this amazing community of like-minded people of all backgrounds, age and abilities to get together and have a place where they can actively spend time, building strength, confidence, empowerment and learn that they can achieve anything if they only put their mind into it. Calisthenics is not just an alternative to a conventional gym and weights. It helps people to grow and develop, get together, make friends and excel. It is an alternative to alcohol and drug addiction. It helps in becoming more disciplined, patient and respectful to others. It makes people not only stronger physically but also mentally. Places like this are a great aid to local community, they should not be closed down due to the financial struggle. Together we can make all the difference.

    It's amazing to see that we're getting really close to 10% of needed sum in just 2 days but we cannot settle just yet! We still need 10 times more people who would be willing to contribute! To get much much more people involved we're starting a #PushUpsForHull challenge. Rules are simple: Record yourself doing a few push ups or their variation. Put the #PushUpsForHull hashtag and link to this page on your video. Tag and nominate 3 of your friends to do the same. Post it on your social media! Facebook, instagram, twitter. Boom! Gone viral.

Hi, I'm Woj. I run a little Calisthenics gym in Basingstoke - just like Calisthenics Parks Gym. I believe that what we do benefits our local communities and feel obliged to do absolutely everything to stop them from closing down. They build an amazing facility - keep it going!
