An Australian, team-based competitive performing art, featuring elements of rhythmic gymnastics, musical and dramatic theatricality, costume, dance, musical interpretation, and more.
The word itself comes from the Greek words for 'beauty' and 'strength'.

At the most elite level, Calisthenics competitors are required to have a high level of flexibility, strength, balance and control, precision, technique, and execution.

Not as well-known as it deserves to be. Also, the hardest sport to explain to a person who hasn't heard of it.
"I do Calisthenics."
"What's that?"
"Oh God, here we go again..."

Calisthenics is the best!

Fitness with body weight is one of my favorite workouts that I love and will never leave.
something good we can all do in our daily lives are exercises with body weight otherwise (calisthenics) helps increase strength endurance muscle mass and flexibility and we can all do as long as we have positive thinking and appetite for what we are going to do. 😜🔥💪

Most people think that you have to reach a certain level of coolness in order to perform calisthenics, but they're really just for anybody.
Boy, am I fat! I need to lose weight the groovy-man way! Turn up the music, because it's time for some CALISTHENICS.
