Being run by Jamie Hempenstall , who has competed in Ireland's National Calisthenics Competition the last two years, this programme is designed in coordination with Jamie Geraghty to help develop:

- Mobility

With a specific emphasis on developing the mobility of each participant, with the entire group initially taken through a Fundamental Movement Screening to assess for any mobility issues. Each participant is then brought through a variety of stretches and movements to help their particular issue, if any arise. Each monday class is then specifically working on mobility issues and working on different stretching techniques.

- Strength

This is a huge aspect of what we work on initially in our intro programme. Developing the fundamental strength and working on static holds in order to progress into the right movements according to each individuals current level.

- Skill

Our interpretation of skill is when we eventually develop the ability to combine movements together, also known within the Calisthenics community as freestyle. We believe that this element of training can only be developed once we have established good mobility in an Athlete and balanced with an adequate level of strength.
