A Practical Approach

For Hampton Liu, staying jacked and healthy doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. His practical approach to coaching fitness has built a massive following for Hybrid Calisthenics.

It doesn’t matter if you’re choosing the best exercise to get started on your journey, or you’ve taken an extended break from the gym. Our friend Hampton emphasizes that whatever your fitness goals are, “you can…” and you already possess the power to attain them.

Behind the comedy, fitness, and philosophy in his videos, his approach is to simply have a conversation.

While his content and brand, Hybrid Calisthenics, continue to evolve, Hampton is steadily held by his goal of helping people cultivate their health and fitness through calisthenics.


Why (Hybrid) Calisthenics?

Exercise should be as simple as utilizing the body, the floor and gravity. It’s something we all possess, which Hampton continuously emphasizes in his coaching.

Calisthenics is about starting from where you are, and working your way up to higher levels. He uses the term “progressive calisthenics,” characterizing fitness as a journey of gradual improvement, not just for the body, but also the mind.

His message doesn’t speak only to the fitness and exercise novice. Progressive calisthenics is a great way for everyone to get their challenge and burn on.
