Street Workout, also known as “Street Gym” or “Callisthenics”, dates back to the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece.
Callisthenics comes from the Greek words kallos (beauty) and stenos (strength).

Today, Street Workout is a popular outdoor fitness discipline, accessible to everyone, that combines weight training and often spectacular “Freestyle” (street gymnastics) moves.

Street Workout is becoming increasingly popular in Europe, with more and more men and women of all ages and levels taking part, and several teams emerging to develop the discipline. Often, “WorkOuters” or “StreetWorkOuters” still carry out their discipline on street furniture (benches, lamp posts, poles, playground equipment, fitness trails, etc.).
Husson first uncovered this new discipline more than 10 years ago, when the first generation of its Color’ado® Outdoor Fitness equipment, dating from 1991, was regularly used by “WorkOuters”.

Working with sports experts, Street Workout associations and the Strasbourg-based “BarStras” team in particular, Husson was one of the first companies to invest in this emerging discipline, introducing the new Out&Fit® SWO spaces.
