About The Bodyweight Gym
The Vision and Mission
In a fitness world dominated by machine, product-driven exercises and fitness regimes, most people lack the understanding of how to use their body to the full potential.
Education is key. Your body and gravity is all you need to develop a strong, mobile, skillful and athletic body.
I started The Bodyweight Gym to pursue an ideal: That everyone can develop themselves physically with simple equipment, the right education and support.

The Bodyweight Gym can provide coaching and education at a level suitable to everyone. I've helped hundreds of people build healthy strong bodies; achieve their first handstand or guided them through their first muscle up.
The process for any of these difficult movements is hard work. However, each step is easy and it's the consistent long-term application of the process that most people are challenged by without support.
At The Bodyweight Gym we can connect you with a community of people; training under our guidance; in our member-only Facebook Group. Here you will gain long-term support and accountability to assist you in meeting your goals.
So, are you ready to build your skills, strength, and mobility?
Then The Bodyweight Gym is the place for you.
I haven't always been into fitness. I started my adult life as a professional Scientist and for 13 years enjoyed my career. I spent my 20's racing mountain bikes and rock climbing. However, my 30's brought about a change where I decided to pursue my lifelong hobby of coaching and sport. I began with CrossFit and for the last 4 years, I've rebuilt myself using Calisthenic bodyweight training methods.
A few years ago I broke my back and I had to relearn everything. Overnight I went from a ring routine and handstand to not even one pushup. Now I'm back and stronger than ever. Through this experience, I've learned a thing or two that has made me a better coach and now I'd like to share what I've learned with you.
The process is easy, it's the long term application that challenges us
