10. Total Body Strength
If you are looking for an efficient way to train the entire body, look no further than progressive calisthenics. The great thing about using your own body as resistance is that most movements recruit the entire body to achieve the task at hand. Every workout has a specific focus and goal for the day, yet all of our workouts at FlipFit call on all of the muscle groups to work together as a system for a total body workout.
9. WE ARE NOT MACHINES
We’ve all been to the gym with rows and rows of treadmills and machines designed to get you “STRONG.” The truth is that your body is the only machine you need to get strong. Machines only mimic real human movements and isolate muscles that are designed to work together in balance. At FlipFit, we put away the fancy gadgets and get down to moving like a human again.

8. BEGINNER FRIENDLY
Are you new to working out and intimidated by weights? Or are you just too worried to get started because you think the movements will be too hard now that you are out of shape? At FlipFit, we use a progressive system of calisthenic exercises that are beginner friendly and great for just getting starting at the gym again. Although you may see the more advanced gymnastics strength skills, don’t let that stop you. Progressive calisthenics is a great way to build a strong foundation and grow a passion for fitness and movement.

FlipFit uses bodyweight movements to burn fat, using progressions and unique movement variations to keep everyone in their zone of progress so they can get the most out of each workout and achieve their goals. Every workout includes a “Conditioning” section, where we turn the complexity down and the intensity up for a fast and fun sprint to the finish!
