Conscious Calisthenics in Body Mind Spirit

A bench press is little more than an upside-down
push-up . . . and a lot less convenient.
Kristofer Hogg

My years in the gym and as a massage therapist have taught me the importance of strong healthy muscles, and I knew I wanted to include “working out” in Body Brilliance. SEAL PT showed me that any park in the world is a potential gym; picnic tables, bleachers, jogging trails and sandy volleyball courts can all be used to strengthen muscles and stamina.

“Calisthenics” comes from the Greek words kallos for beauty and thenos for strength. These healthful exercises are designed to create muscle fitness, which includes muscular strength, gracefulness, and physical well being. Calisthenics, as they are taught in traditional physical education classes, can be boring and usually have a bad rap. I am amazed that I enjoy the SEAL PT workouts so much—that I’m paying good money to enjoy what I avoided (what I considered pure hell, actually) in high school.

Muscle fitness refers to both muscle strength (how heavy an object you can lift) and muscle endurance (how long can you lift it). Keeping our muscle strength is important for good health. Every pound of muscle we have burns thirty-five to fifty calories a day. And as we age most of us lose one pound of muscle mass a year. This weakening of the muscles leads to the loss of normal strength, balance, and coordination.
