Bodyweight Sports has various social impact objectives that are realized at a rapid pace thanks to the unbridled efforts of our trainers.
In recent decades, the lack of exercise in the Netherlands and all over the world has increased enormously (CBS). Overweight children, adults with physical limitations and the elderly who are barely able to do anything has almost become a habit in the streets.
Bodyweight Sports is committed to all these target groups by stimulating movement and creating enthusiasm for the sport Calisthenics. Thanks to the low threshold and accessibility of Calisthenics, we see a future in which all people can become healthier and fitter through this sport.
Development of calisthenics
Since 2015 we have subconsciously already started building up the sport of Calisthenics. Thanks to the establishment of Bodyweight Sports as a calisthenics association since 2022, the most important steps to actually create a sports climate have emerged.
Because the sport is still young (+-15 years), there are all kinds of developments going on with regard to this structure of the sports climate. We believe that building a sport and creating a social impact can only happen by using our experience and knowledge and working together with athletes, organisers, foundations and associations.
As an association with accommodation, we can contribute to research and events, but also to the launch of many projects in the field of safety, sports programs, national competition and jury systems. The sport of calisthenics develops very rapidly worldwide.
Professional calisthenics association
As calisthenics association, it is important that practitioners have the opportunity to practice the sport at a professional indoor location. This is why our location is fully equipped for calisthenics. Bodyweight Sports also wants to continue to improve and expand the accommodation in the upcoming years.
Our accommodation is also used for school lessons, meetings and research. As a result, the sport is growing and it offers opportunities for other people and companies to also get involved in the development of calisthenics.
Our mission is:
-To start a national competition
-Keep track of rankings
