Calisthenics is a new type of physical training that is rapidly gaining popularity, especially among young people. No specific equipment is required for training because the exercises work exclusively with your body weight.
Whether your goal is to build up strength, increase your fitness levels or learn a specific movement, calisthenics offers flexibility, body control and a fun way to get moving. There is a wide range of exercises to choose from. People of all ages, abilities and almost any weight category can do a calisthenics workout.
Every single person has different requirements, which means the range of training options has to be broad and offer plenty of options. Calisthenics equipment can be used as required by each individual person: to provide a healthy way to spend leisure time in public parks, for physical education in schools or for performance-oriented training in sports clubs.
The playfit® calisthenics series is ideal for:
- public parks and other open spaces
- sport facilities & clubs
- schools and universities
- rehabilitation and treatment clinics
- recreational facilities

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The versatile playfit® Multifunction Unit is suitable for a wide range of individual training exercises.
Training options for three performance levels (basic – intermediate – advanced)
STRETCHES: All bar equipment can be used for various stretching exercises.
HANGING EXERCISE: Try hanging from the top rungs of the equipment.
SQUATS: Stand facing the vertical bars. Hold the bar that roughly corresponds to your shoulder height, crouch down into a squat. For a more challenging workout, hold onto a bar at stomach height.
PUSH-UPS: Keeping your body tensed, hold onto one of the bars with both hands and start to do push-ups.
Progression: Increase your distance from the bar by placing your feet further behind you.
LEG LIFTS: Hanging from one of the horizontal or vertical bars, raise your knees alternately or simultaneously. Experienced users can try straightening their legs and pulling them upwards into a horizontal position.
MONKEY BARS: Start by hanging from the first of the horizontal bars, then move from bar to bar by using your hands or your hands and feet at the same time until you reach the other end.
PULL-UPS: To train your arm muscles, hold onto one of the bars with your hands shoulder-width apart and your palms towards your face.
Now slowly pull yourself up as far as you can.
Try different grip variants on the pull-up bar (e.g. gripping the bar from the other side with palms facing towards you or from the front with palms facing in the other direction), this requires different muscle groups.
