Founder - Old School Calisthenic Romania

I am a former swimmer and had an athletic body until high school. After this, I dropped sports altogether except occasionally playing football. As a result, I got fat and out of shape. So I started running and gym. But after a while, I got fed up with the smell, atmosphere of the gym and negative egocentric people it was full of. So I quit the gym and decided to train in the park. One day a friend saw me doing some bodyweight exercises and he asked me if I was training for calisthenics. I didn’t know what calisthenics meant and had to ask him. I came home and researched on YouTube about it. I came across Frank Medrano and I was stunned by the stuff I saw him doing. Next day I got back in the park and tried to emulate him and realized the difficulty of his simple looking moves. I found some books on calisthenics and came across Convict Conditioning by Paul Wade. His advice changed my views about calisthenics. Since then (2015), I've been training like a freak and let it be sun, rain or snow you will find me working hard outside. After all these years I have developed quite a physique and can do all those moves seen on YouTube which were impossible back then. I owe calisthenics so much and I want to spread about it as much as I can. This is how Old School Calisthenic got created.
