We’ve all seen them. “Exercise People” are all over social media, and they all wanna tell you what you’re doing wrong with your workouts. To me, most come off as pretentious and vain. Douchey would be another word, but I’m trying to work on my positivity and be nice.
But not this guy.
His name is Hampton from Hybrid Calisthenics, and I found myself bumping into his videos on Facebook. He’s super positive, non-judgemental, and gives simple instruction to help anyone get into shape and live a healthier life.
Calisthenics, by the way, is basically working out without any equipment. Nature, and more importantly, gravity, gave us everything we need to stay in shape. So he gives very helpful tips on things you can do to not only lose weight but be healthier. He often reminds people to concentrate on living healthy, rather that getting thin, and that fitness is a journey, and everyone is at different stages of it.
I’m definitely no fitness junkie. I don’t even run when I’m chased anymore. But I’ve seen his videos pop up on my feed on several occasions, and I eventually sought him out intentionally because he gives good information.
The other thing I like about him is that he bleeds positivity. It’s actually quite inspiring, and as such, I have found myself occasionally taking some of his advice. Just check out this video of how he helps people work up to a pull up.
It’s refreshing to see someone in the exercise game so positive and genuinely trying to help others. Which is why I figured I’d tell you about him. If you’re looking to get in better shape and be healthier, look into this guy. You just might find the help you need.
