What does Calisthenics provide you with?

Calisthenics to me means everything. When I started calisthenics I was pretty insecure about myself, but after a few months of training I started talking to more and more people and now I have so much more confidence about my self. Besides that I love working out and I love challenging myself and doing new skills. I don’t see any negatives in this sport, everywhere I have been (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, England, Ireland, Social Media, etc.) they are all so kind people! So literally calisthenics means the world to me and I can’t imagine a life without it.

What is your specialty / style?

my specialties are freestyle calisthenics. Freestyle calisthenics is just a part of calisthenics. Freestyle calisthenics is a combination of doing statics and dynamics together in one combo. I love doing freestyle, because you can decide everything what you want to do. There are no limits and you can do what you love, also when I compete in competitions I just do what I want to do.

How often do you train, with what – and how?

I train around 5 days a week, it depends on how my muscles feel and if they don’t feel ready for another workout I just take a day rest. On Tuesday and Friday I am doing the freestyle part of calisthenics at Bodyweight Sports with a group of other athletes. At a freestyle training we train around 2,5 hours, the first 30 minutes is the warm up than we go for a 1 to 1,5 hour dynamic session and at the end we are doing for 30 minutes to an hour static session. Especially I train statics at Monday, Thursday and Sunday. I train statics for around 1,5 to 2 hours on a single day. On a static day I train; Planche, Frontlever, Backlever, Hefesto, One arm handstand, etc. After telling this all you can have a clear image of how my week looks like.

How do you prepare for a competition battle?

I prepare a competition for example; if there is a competition on Saturday, than my last training will be on Wednesday. For the rest my schedule looks the same as I told before. But also a week before the competition I will eat extra healthy so I feel extra good on a competition.

How far do you go for the sports and where’s the boundary?

For me there are no limits in the sport! I have so much goals left and probably when I achieved them I will have new goals.
