EvoFit is primarily a calisthenic fitness system, that’s focused on truly functional fitness and longevity.

EvoFit has borrowed the best elements from many different fitness systems to make it as holistic and balanced as possible.


Calisthenics: using one’s body weight and qualities of inertia as a means to develop one’s physique

EvoFit combines training philosophies, principles and exercises from disciplines such as:

  • Gymnastics
  • Natural Method
  • Yoga
  • Parkour
  • Animal Flow (quadrupedal movement)
  • Strong Man

Although there is familiarity in common calisthenic exercises and the list of disciplines above, the merging and combination of these makes for fitness system that is much more complete and holistic, as in isolation, most have shortcomings.
