Not only does the beginner bundle give you Restore and Fundamentals. You also get our popular Stretch Series, which can challenge you throughout your athletic career. Get mobile, feel better, and fight injuries before they happen.
Why Bodyweight Workouts?
It’s fun and very effective at building strength and mobility. Mobility allows you to use the strength you’ve built, keeps your joints healthy, and prepares you for the harder muscle-building exercises ahead.
Can you get all of the benefits you would with traditional weight training?
Absolutely. Our bodyweight programs go far beyond pushups, pull-ups and crunches and provide hundreds of exercises from beginner to advanced to give you variety and step by step progression.
What’s Included — Lifetime Access to the Following:
Mobility | Movement | Body Position | Wrists | Daily Limber
Do you know what shoulder extension is and why you need to train it to prevent injury? Fundamentals will take you through a series of 20 lessons that teach you what areas to train for whole body balanced mobility. You’ll learn the basic vocabulary and body positions for bodyweight training and be set up for success to graduate to the Level 1 plan.
Favorite student exercises include crab, ape, shoulder extension and hollow body.
When was the last time you heard “I injured my quads?” Likely never. Injuries happen frequently to the joints and rarely to the muscles. Yet, the joints are often ignored in structured training. Restore will give you specific routines to follow which will mobilize joints and surrounding muscles to prevent aches, pain and injury. It is a companion course to Fundamentals that addresses the weaknesses you uncover.
Our students especially love the feeling of freedom from opening up their hips and shoulders.
Only Use Once a Week | 45-Minutes | Improve Flexibility
Our Stretch Series is intense, like a bulldozer that removes debris for a smoother foundation. No matter your fitness level, you will feel it.
Schedule Stretch alongside Foundations and Restore, or use it after a regular workout—but only once a week. If you are completely new to stretching, let Fundamentals and Restore build a comfortable mobility base before beginning Stretch. The Front Split series opens your hips, hamstrings, quads, and ankles. Expect Middle Split to focus on hip and hamstring flexibility, while Thoracic Bridge targets the upper back, chest, and shoulders. You can apply these skills, and the impressive mobility you gain, to your other fitness pursuits to help keep you injury free and moving well.
Here’s What the Professionals Have to Say
“The mobility is put together so well. It confirms to me that most people have mobility that is pathological. In my work as a Physio I treat many people with rotator cuff injuries. They have mobility that comes nowhere near what is in this program. If only they did these mobility exercises before they got injured! This whole program is so well thought out. This is worth way more than it costs. I truly believe this is the best program I have seen that is also beneficial in terms of musculoskeletal health.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Is bodyweight training effective for building muscle?
There are two different types of muscle that you can put on. Bodyweight training is most effective at building muscle density. Think incredibly strong but lean like a gymnast. Muscle size is more common in bodybuilding but can also be done with special programming of bodyweight training.
Is bodyweight training enough?
Bodyweight training is so effective that weight training is not required at all. Some students choose to supplement their weight training with bodyweight work while others do not weight train at all. It comes down to your goals and having a good program like GymFit to progress you properly.
Why are bodyweight exercise as effective as weight training?
The short answer is that the body doesn’t care whether your resistance comes from a weight or creating load through bodyweight progressions. Bodyweight workouts focus on maximal muscle contraction which makes the muscle more efficient and thus stronger.
Can you build muscle without a gym?
Absolutely. Many students workout at home with minimal equipment or at playgrounds or parks. Some skills and exercises do require equipment to learn, but for most everything the best piece of equipment is your own body!
Can you maintain muscle with bodyweight exercises?
Yes, though it depends on whether your mobility is in line with your strength. If you are too tight while being very strong, you are very likely to get injured. In this scenario, we put muscle gains on maintenance while building the proper mobility. The benefit of good mobility is that you’ll be able to use the muscle in larger ranges of motion and so will be even stronger long term.
