Founded in 2015, Burton Calisthenics Club approached East Staffordshire Borough Council with an idea to provide a Calisthenics Training Frame for both it’s members and the community. Following the presentation of an idea to the Neighborhood Forum, companies were invited to tender for the project with Streetscape being the successful bidder.
The aim of Burton Calisthenics Club is to encourage people lead more healthy and active lives through exercise and good nutrition. One of the reasons it’s been accepted is that project meets the priority of East Staffordshire Borough Council which is protecting and strengthening communities and also East Staffordshire is part of Healthy Cities network and promoting healthy activities is an important element of that. Engaging healthy activities in communities creates more motivation, encourages people to engage in a challenge, take interest in other sports, improves socializing and discourages from bad habits and unhealthy addictions. Each individual’s physical activity and balanced nutrition is very important part in creating strong and happy society.
With help from various funding sources such as Tesco’s Bags of Help, and multiple fund raising and awareness events through local organisations such as Dads4dads and Harvey’s Girls, the bespoke design Calisthenics unit was successfully installed with an Open Day held to thank all those involved to make the project a success.
Burton Calisthenics Club now have a membership of over 40 members from 7 different countries and regularly organise events such as organised pull up challenges and group exercise classes.
