About Nederlandse Calisthenics Bond

The future starts today, and you are part of it!
Calisthenics, always, everywhere, for everyone, a sports climate for every level.
Together we raise the bar.

The English word “calisthenics” is derived from two Greek words: “Kalos”, which means “beautiful”, and “Stenos”, which means “strength”. In Dutch it literally means "Beautiful power". It originated in ancient Greece as training for the soldiers.

Calisthenics has become a collective name for all exercises that are performed with one's own body weight or in combination with minimal equipment. A pure form of training with your own body weight, with which you train your strength, endurance, coordination and flexibility at the same time. The ideal mix to build a strong and athletic body.
