Body-weight training is 2015’s top fitness trend, beating out last year’s No. 1, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), reports the American College of Sports Medicine.

Body-weight training—using your own weight for resistance, as opposed to free weights or machines—is great for building muscle on the cheap (one reason it gained popularity in the recent recession, says study head Walter Thompson, Ph.D.); if you lack equipment (like when you’re traveling); or when you just want to avoid the gym’s grunting masses.

Bartendaz physical fitness program in your area. Bartendaz is a dynamic martial arts and physical training program engineered to bolster fitness, discipline, self-esteem and actualization for practitioners. A combination of military drills, calisthenics and break dancing, Bartendaz physical fitness practice does not only transform bodies; it transforms lives. In 1993, the Bartendaz founder, Hassan Yasin, was practicing his own unique fitness drills at a park in Harlem. Intrigued, a group of young men nearby began watching and asked for him to explain his technique.

Within a few weeks, the number of followers was in the dozens. And within that five years the Bartendaz method was being instructed in over 20 New York City Public Schools. The most remarkable result of the program was not the increase in muscular strength and capacity but the dramatic turnaround in the lives of the students. In finding gratification and peer validation in fitness, many of the students chose to veer away from vice and delinquency and reshape their lives.

Because of its foundation in hip-hop culture, Bartendaz has been extraordinarily popular with urban youth, and has been a huge success in the most high-risk schools. The Bartendaz program uses a down to earth approach, in 4 week to full semester courses integrating martial style discipline with dynamic rhythmic drills.

This fusion is so engaging that it allows for seamless leadership training and public health education across age lines effectively reaching elementary to high school youth. As such, practitioners of Bartendaz not only advance in their physical fitness, they advance towards their actualization and life goals.
