My name is Dave Smith and I'd like to welcome you to the best resource for calisthenics workouts and bodyweight exercise! I've been a personal trainer for over a decade specializing in calisthenic training because it allows anyone to stay active and get fit without any equipment or gym memberships. It's the most convenient and powerful form of exercise out there.
Recently I was named Top Personal Trainer in Canada for my work with clients just like you. Busy lives, hectic work schedules, and an uncertainty as to how to train effectively are just a few of the reasons my clients enjoy exercising with me via this online program. Using just your own body weight you can get in amazing shape. Let me show you how!
Calisthenics are simply exercises that require no equipment. They can be used to shed fat, build muscle, improve balance, increase flexibility, and provide many other amazing health benefits. Make Your Body Work is devoted to teaching the best calisthenics exercise principles to be found anywhere online. Why are we so hooked on calisthenics?
Skeptical that this style of training can work for you? That's completely understandable given the fact that billions of dollars are spent each year on home fitness equipment and gym memberships. There is a lot of marketing effort being done to convince us that fitness is only within reach if we are willing to use equipment. That message is simply not true!
Members of our program don't fit one particular mold. They are men, women, young, and old. Mitch is one just one of our clients who was looking to shed a little fat and build a leaner, more muscular physique.

She is a competitive athlete and a physiotherapist and she uses Make Your Body Work every week. Steph is one of our amazing members who pushes her fitness limits by doing the most challenging versions of every workout. Of course there are many different levels of difficulty so that anyone can join in!
The first step in creating a successful fitness plan is realizing that time is limited. That is precisely why we aim to create exceptionally time-efficient exercise routines that are effective and manageable. After all, the greatest workout plan won't generate any results if it doesn't get done!
This is one of the reasons we focus so much on calisthenics that can be done anywhere, anytime. We have found that our clients are much more likely to get their regular exercise done when they know that it will be quick and won't require them to go out of their way to do it. Want to see how easy it is to get an awesome workout done right now?
People often make the mistake of using only a small segment of calisthenics exercises, thereby over-training certain muscles and neglecting others altogether. There certainly are calisthenics exercises that can target every muscle in the body - It just takes a little knowledge and creativity to put together an effective routine that does so.
All of the workouts offered here at Make Your Body Work follow some important guidelines when it comes to training with just bodyweight exercises:

Dave Smith is a personal trainer who specializes in calisthenics workouts. He has been working in the fitness industry for over a decade and has perfected the art of the "no-equipment workout" along the way. His motivation for creating this online personal training program was to see people free themselves from their gym memberships. His own busy schedule often prevented him from getting to the gym so he began building exercise routines comprised of bodyweight exercises. He loved the efficiency and the results that followed and is now sharing his experience.
This program is about more than just great calisthenics workout routines. Dave aims to make this a true personal training experience by connecting with clients individually, acting as their accountability partners, and communicating with them during their fitness journey. He offers advice regarding exercise, nutrition, and other healthy lifestyle habits that will improve the results you see from your fitness routine.
