About World Calisthenics Organization (WCO) & Streetsports ®
Founded by Kenneth Gallarzo and Brendan Cosso, the World Calisthenics Organization (WCO) was created for calisthenics enthusiasts by respected authorities on bodyweight training. The overarching intention of the WCO is to bring the calisthenics and street workout movement to the forefront of the mainstream fitness industry.
The WCO achieves this by educating the community on safe and effective training methods and holding one-of-a-kind events
Calisthenics has elements of practicality and versatility for trainees of all walks of life. It can produce gravity defying strength, while remaining accessible to older populations and kids.
Despite the countless athletes who have taken to bodyweight training, there has been very limited support or resources for enthusiasts unfamiliar with calisthenics. Fitness professionals and a growing community of practitioners are seeking a systematic approach to calisthenics, with no avail. The World Calisthenics Organization recognized this dysfunction, and plans to refine calisthenics education with StreetSport.
StreetSport, the methodology behind the WCO, has taken off on an international scale. Gyms worldwide are hosting StreetSport workshops, setting the standards and practices for facility owners looking to teach calisthenics to their members.
The WCO has continued to define their methodology, providing enthusiasts and fitness professionals with a comprehensive and accessible approach to bodyweight training.
