Great book! Very thorough and Easy to understand! Following his YouTube page as well.
Love it! Revolutionary workout!
The book is very well laid out and the content is outstanding. I am not in very good shape to start out, and will be using the progressions to enable me to perform all the needed motion exercises. The book is very nice and of high quality. I appreciate when purchasing something and actually getting what I expect. I am happy to support your channel by making purchases. I will likely also purchase the rings you have on your site, they look to be of high quality as well. Thank you. David
I'm really liking the scalability of the exercises! I have fibromyalgia, so it gives me a way to get into a routine while not jumping straight into full blown versions of like- push ups for example- that typically aggravate my joints.
I am halfway through my seventh decade and have worked behind a desk my whole life. This book is a step by step manual on how to start from zero and slowly, carefully, and at my own pace, work toward strengthening and increasing mobility and stamina. It is easy to read and understand. The photos illustrate each step along the way. Highly recommend.
Love the spiral binding. Opens flat to make it easy to read. Good pictures & descriptions. Using it in conjuction w/ my PT. Can't wait to use after & go further in my healing.
Book is well made, feels durable, and the progressions are easy to follow. Very nice supplement to the YouTube while still maintaining Hampton's wholesome, humorous nature.
Love this book and so appreciate all the work Hampton puts into everything.
The book came so quickly. The photos and instructions are really clear. The design is great so that I can have it open while I work on the exercises. I am getting older and doing calisthenics are helping be get stronger and more flexible. I really appreciate the ability to scale - it means I can DO something every day, make progress and not quit out of frustration.
We love watching his videos. Was excited to see the book come out. Especially for those that don't have great access to the internet. Book looks great and has specific instructions for each exercise. Great for beginners to advanced students.
Who couldn’t love Hampton and this simple yet powerful philosophy?! On a few of the variations with subtle differences I think a few more photos or photos at different angles would help. But I love it and recommend Hampton to anyone!
I love this book! Thank you so much for thinking about people who are lost on how to get their strength back and you explain it so well with pictures too! Thanks so much!!! ❤️
Great book, great mentor. 10/10 my friend!
I really like how easy it is follow each workout. Everything is explained in detail and easy to understand. Plus there’s pictures for visual aids! I like the website but this is a nice alternative that will allow me to further personalize a routine that works for me.
Great quality and content!
This is a high quality book! I love the durable pages and the spiral bound format. Makes it very user friendly! Also love the care and effort made to accommodate so many levels of ability. This is such a great book-I am so glad I purchased and I’m so happy to support you, your channel and your amazing work!!

This guide book is very nice! Quality thick pages will stand up to frequent page turnings. And the coil binding is genius! Lies flat and stays open to the page you are using. Large enough to read while doing the exercises, small enough to pack with you when you are on the go.
I look forward to using this, and putting Hampton’s exercises to work. Excellent photos, tutorial step by step instructions. The opposite page lists great whys, and form cues of the exercises, and how to make them harder or easier.
This book is a keeper, don’t miss out!
Hi quality printing. Very easy to read, clear concise exercise and movement descriptions. Also good instructions on making the exercises easier for beginners and how to step up to more advanced movements.
You've got a good thing going here. This should work for anyone at any age. I plan to start Monday
Love the book it will help me with my workout routine.
Very nicely organized and presented. I'm reading a chapter a day, and it's a pleasant book to read, in addition to being good instruction.
Love your videos and energy! Thanks for the awesome book. I personal love the physical form of knowledge so your book is a win keep up the good work.
GREAT info.....but very repetitive. I feel like it could have been a MUCH shorter book. The pictures were awesome and I loved the casual style of writing.
New exercises were inventive so I'm happy with the purchase. But seemed like lots of cutting/pasting was done. :-(
I share this mobility program with everyone. I work in the fitness industry and I freely share this as an effective but simple base to start learning how to move. I have been using it daily myself and can see the improvement in surprising ways such as suddenly being able to perform squid squats in a HIIT class despite never having done them before and isolating my upper back muscles easily as I work on horizontal pullups. I am a 51 year old female so this hasn't been a common experience before. I appreciate the thoughtful order of the progressions and look forward to sharing more breakthroughs as we progress. Thank you for offering the program freely on the website as well as offering it for sale in book form. It makes it very easy to share while also supporting your work.
Such an easy way to start working out and focuses deeply on progression and regression. I think Hampton made an excellent book that dives into calisthenics for both beginners and the advanced. One thing I love about the book is it gives the reader a variety of different exercises, showing proper form and explains common mistakes that people make when exercising. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone looking to further themselves into calisthenics.
This book is awesome. I came across Hampton on Facebook while watching other self-help and exercise videos. I loved his kindness and real down-to-earth personality. There was nothing "fake" or "misleading" about him, and the way he engaged the audience just made me feel a true and deep respect. When I saw that he had made a book, I knew I wanted it. But, beyond the charisma of the author, this book really is AMAZING. Extremely well organized and thoughtful. Insights and instruction are on point. I highly recommend this book, and any/all of Hampton's videos or tutorials. Thanks, friend.
So glad that I purchased Hybrid Calisthenics! It is well written with clear explanations, tutorials, and pictures. I understand each exercise and their progressions, and what I need to accomplish to move through these progressions. The weekly routine makes it easy to start and I think it will be easy to stick to the routine. Great book for folks of any fitness level!
I’m loving the easier navigating in a real book. Just put sticky tabs labeled MTh. TuF. WSa on the exact exercises I’m on. Plus, I can go online for the videos if I need more info than provided in the two photos per exercise. I had to let my exercise trainer go with Covid so I’m starting at all the lowest levels to build up
Advice: Don’t do what I did when first starting up. I was able to fairly easily do 3 sets of 30 half-squats. Two days later I had terrible soreness and struggled to walk for several days. If you’ve not exercised for awhile just start at one set of ten reps and slowly add reps and sets. In a month you’ll be plenty advanced without suffering.
Great job. Thanks, Hamilton!!
Note: I’m nearly 80 so maybe a younger person would navigate online easier than in a book?
I love your channel/online presence and this book is a great way to be able to access your advice, techniques and encouragement even when not online. It's really appreciated that you made this. Thank you!
I'm a 62 year old and overweight. I've tried more exercise programs (and spent more money) than I care to recall! I'm finding Hybrid Calisthenics to be unique in my experience. The program is simple. The exercises are clearly defined and illustrated with progressions from very easy to extremely challenging. I'm a little sore physically but very pleased mentally with this purchase; by far the best investment in my health in quite a while!
I bought a book for me and a friend, we both are very excited to have this book on hand and continue practices on our own :)
I love this book because it feels like... Hampton really cares about this message. He isn't trying to sell health or fitness as a product, but as something attainable at all levels for all people. I especially like knowing that there are VERY low-impact ways of adapting the exercises and movements to scale up--this is great for those of use who have previous injury, disability, or are facing an uphill battle to get back in good health.
I love this book. It's easy to follow and understand how to do the exercises and I can feel them working! Hampton is adorable and I'm happy I could support his work by buying a copy of this book!
The book was as great as I hoped it would be. My son has already stolen it from me and started looking at how to improve his chinups.
Great resource for newbies all the way up to advanced athletes. Workouts and exercises are well explained and allow the user to perform them accurately.
Great job. So far the text is laid out in a concise easy to follow format. Nice job.
TL:DR This book is exactly what I need, convenient, easy to use, and has something for literally any ability level. Also, Hampton is a beautiful soul whose videos have been bringing me encouragement and joy during a very trying year, and I am happy to be able to support him and his work.
I am a middle-aged, overweight woman recovering from a shattered ankle. I haven't been able to walk independently for almost a year. My whole body needs rehab, and many of the exercises that have been prescribed by my physical therapist are actually beyond my current independent ability level.
This book breaks down every exercise from the easiest modification to the most challenging. It doesn't matter what level you're at, Hampton has ensured that you can do this.
The videos online are helpful, but I love the ability to have it open next to me when I'm actually attempting the exercises. The spiral binding ensures it lays flat and doesn't lose your spot, which is something a lot of other books overlook.
I recommend this to anyone of any ability level, but especially for people like me who are not fit enough for other typical exercise books/routines. I can not express how helpful and encouraging it is to have modifications that I can successfully complete. It's taken rehab from impossible to attainable.
Just got my book and am excited to use it. I love watching Hamptons videos and am happy to have a book with the hybrid routine to continue learning and growing.
This is a great resource! I keep it on my counter with a tracker for which step I’m at for each exercise. I love having the progression, the variations, and the standards it handy so I don’t waste time searching. Hampton’s instructions are clearly stated and just detailed enough without being confusing. The entire book is easy-to-read and easy to navigate (colored page headers help you find your exercise). The pictures are clear and helpful. And the spiral-binding was a great idea!
The book quality is amazing! I am 3 days into the routine and feeling it. Looking forward to seeing my progression as I stick to it. I am doing this to help get into better shape and hopefully prevent injury while riding mountain bikes.
The book is done really well and meets everyone where they are. Super high quality print and content - love the spiral binding
Book arrived today! High quality and exactly what I was expecting! Excited to start the program and gain back some strength and flexibility. I am very thankful for the progressions provided for each exercise so I can start at a very beginner level
This book is an easy read. I like that I can workout at my own pace. All of the instructions and pictures were very helpful.
Review in two parts, content and book quality.
The content is of course the high quality you’d expect from Hybrid Calisthenics, no surprise there. Directions are clear with reasonable progressions. Abundant photos help clarify things even further and the routine included is simple to follow.
The book quality is incredible. Substantial paper weight with high quality ink, binding works great allowing you to lay it flat on either double or single page spread. I’ve purchased several programs from other creators, but this is the highest quality/most professional presentation I’ve seen.
Highly recommend this workout and specifically this book!
Great workout plan!
I have started this amazing step by step plan. So far so good. I feel like I’m improving already!!!
I love the thought and care put into the creating of this wonderful book! Thank you so much for this amazing resource.
Well written, easy to understand, works even when the internet doesn’t, and while I normally don’t like spiral binding, it makes sense in this application. 10 out of 10. Highly recommend.
Love the format of the spiral bound book (it lays flat!). It's well organized with the same easy to follow guided progression in difficulty as the videos and the photos clearly demonstrate each step. The program in the book reflects the same approach Hamilton uses in his videos so its a great supplement to watching online, but it could just as easily stand on its own. Kudos to the team!
The book is very easy to follow and understand. Has levels from beginners to experts. I love that it’s written as if Hampton is talking to you right.
I love watching your videos. I learn a lot from them and have emplamented some of them. I am looking to do more, just have to motivate myself, which this book will do. I love how you put it out there for free. Everything I have ever looked into, you always have to pay for the program. I love you came out with the book. This way I can revert back to it when I forget something.
Would LOvE if you could recommend a weekly practice.
Awesomest of the awesome sauces!
So far this book has helped me stay focused and on track with my workouts. Very descriptive.
Love the book!!! Very well done easy to follow!
Just got the book can't wait to put it in use
Great book..look forward to working om with it.
He is the Mr Roger's of exercise. Thank you.
I'm old school - I love, love, love the spiral bound format. Find a page leave the book open and it stays there. What a concept!!! Just like the videos, the book is presented in a clear, easy to follow way and there are great modifications. Thank you for a great tool.
Well done book. Clear and simple. I started it about 6 days ago and already feel the difference that starting with great form will do. Highly recommend this book!
Awesome book very high quality, love the exercises.
Going through the book is really easy. I love how it shows the easiest to the hardest. I like the closing thoughts to reach section and the suggestions for easier or harder. I also like the daily set up. My self and my daughter have used it each day. I'm so glad I got this book!!
Day one. Already love it. If you’re on the fence. Don’t be. Buy it. You won’t regret.
As someone who is almost 51, my goal is to get stronger and to stay flexible while on a very tight schedule. The layout and ease of the program is just what I was looking for!

This book is absolutely amazing. The setup of it is so easy to read. It is really awesome to follow. There are so many different levels, progressions, and details behind it that you're not confused about anything. There are pictures to help you with your form and so many different variations of the workouts that you won't have a issue figuring out where to start. I love this book. 13/5 would recommend.
this is very helpful it got my daughter ready for navy bootcamp
I bought the book on the strength of a friend's recommendation, the pleasurable sight of seeing Hampton exercise in a video, and the intriguing idea of using rings for the first time.
My goals might be a little different than for the book's intended audience, since I wasn't looking for a complete long-term program for fitness. I already knew more exercises (including some from the book) than I had time to do, and these are for more than general fitness. Some things I do because I like them a lot in themselves, and I wouldn't want to replace them with something else.
However, it was doubtful I could do a pull-up at the time and I never have been able to do a full bridge. Plus there was that allure of the rings.
My friend provided long distance moral support as we checked in with each other, starting with a yoga program and then adding things from the book.
It was definitely possible to take selected exercise groups from the book, and the many variations let me choose steps easy enough I could do them, that should progress into what I can't do.
I do things from the book about every other day, along with other things, and I'm really grateful for it.
A great quality book. The paper is high quality and the pictures are very clear. Great instructions. I like the explanations and clear progression paths for each of the exercises. My kids and I are following along and feeling better each day.
Just received the book. Got a chance to look thru it. The photos will be a big help in trying out the different things. I have to go slow because of a back injury and degenerative arthritis. But at least I can go thru the book and try some things to hopefully help me. Thank you.
The exercises are easy to perform and are very effective
The book is nicely laid out , making it easy to develop a plan for it's use.
I'm really happy to have this book! I am able to use it to easily progress through the stages by bookmarking the pages with the level I am at. There are lot's of descriptions and images to help me along the way.
I’ve always enjoyed Hampton’s videos and his website is excellent. I enjoy having a hard copy of the workout available to refer to and since it supports a wonderful young man, that makes it even better!
This is a great addition to my workout library. I appreciate the simple explanations and multiple levels for each exercise. Hampton demystifies what people need to do, and demonstrates easy to follow instructions to help us reach our goals.
love it! thank you!
I ordered the book. Put it on the table. Nothing happened. So I moved it to my bedroom. Still nothing happened. So, I opened it up and read it. Still nothing. So just this week I decided I should actually follow the directions on the pages. I’m sore (in a good way). It’s working. Great for beginners or advanced people looking to increase their strength.
Love the book has help me keep on track.
I have followed Hampton on Instagram for a while and find him so motivating. Love the book. Didn’t disappoint
The book is well made and layed out so that it's user friendly
Rock climbers, climb with pretty much just their body weight, maybe another 20 lbs of equipment but they're just really trying to get most every muscle group to statically or kinetically overcome their total body weight.
We can all marvel at their stamina and flexability, why therefore is a gym necessary when we carry our own every day? I like how this book locks this potential in a supportive and achievable manner.
A wonderful person writes a wonderful book about a wonderfully simple, yet wondeful effective training method. Wonderful! ;-)
Seriuosly, the low bar to start, combinded with a careful progression makes this the first fitness program that is REALLY for everybody, from absolute beginner to very (very, very) advanced!
It's healthy and sustainable, it aims at what counts in terms of human body movements and capabilities. Brilliantly simple yet getting more and more challenging in higher stages.
I've tried Hampton's routine several times now, so this book is not new stuff to me. But it significantly eases up prep / tracking and is just handy.
Can't wait for the App to have animated instructions, hack in the progression and simplify the daily sessions further.
The progression of Hampton and his Hybrid Calesthenics is also a joy to witness!
Have a wonderful day!
I love this book! I'd been doing the exercises online but it's really nice to have a physical copy where you can see all the tips and instructions in one glance. The paper is super high quality and the spiral binding makes it easy to lay flat. I like how the different exercise groups are color-coded so I can quickly find what I'm looking for. Hybrid Calisthenics is an awesome program and this book is a must-have! :)
Awesome quality and great information. Really makes fitness accessible for any level. Highly recommend.
This book is awesome. The exercises are all different difficulties for anyone’s level. This is great for remote workers to do on lunch as this is what I do. You will see improvements if you just stick with it.
Just wanted to say I love this book. I'm in the process of recovering from a broken leg and this has helped me work at my pace. It was great for giving me the freedom to adjust workouts to cater to my needs (I'm very much a beginner at everything so it helped with my confidence too.) It helped me start moving again, which in turn was great for giving me more energy and helping with the depression that was starting to set in.
Excellent photos for exercises. I love the progression, and Hampton's down to earth teaching.
Love the book! Everything I wanted to know is in one concise instruction manual. It’s easy to read with plenty of pictures to guide me on my workouts. I’m excited to start this journey.
I'm a beginner in calisthenics in every sense of the word and this book is very in depth and easy to understand. I'm excited to see where it takes me!
Great buy. I know I can access all the info on the website but this dude genuinely cares & puts out so much free info & asks for nothing in return. I wanted to help support & as a bonus I get this sweet book that is loaded with great info. Also I still like having a physical copy. Do yourself a favor & grab a copy
The binder arrived within the time frame I paid for. I really like the spiral binding as it makes it easy to navigate from page to page. There is also a work out regimen suggestion that has been awesome to get started at the stage I'm at. The examples go from beginners to advances this has helped me to stay focused and move to a visual end goal.
I've been looking for exercise/movement that will help me to continue to be strong in everyday movement. I'm going into "golden" years'' ....lol...and want to be healthy and strong. This seems like a very good way to do it!
I am a person that does a lot better with a physical book than a website, so I was very pleased to find this. I really love the way the book is laid out. Step by step with a clear plan and very beginner friendly. Lots of photos and instructions on how to increase or decrease the difficulty of your workout.
This book is extremely well written and I love the spiral binding!
I am very pleased with the program!
My book was damaged in shipping. No major damage and book is still usable but the plastic package was torn and the corner was crushed. Still love the workout tho.

Love this book so much. Really good quality and very nice to have. Thank you for all the information that you shared in the book. I can't wait to read it all, and do it ofc!! :D
Used to follow the video routines, and they were very achievable and helpful. It's just easier for me to do things regularly with a physical guide and reminder, so I can't wait to try this again. Hopefully all goes well!
The book itself has a nice weight to it, has a good cover, and the pages are this thicker glossy paper you'd see in travel guides, so it definitely looks like it'll hold up well. It doesn't seem fragile and turns easy and lies flat with no snags.
Wonderful layout with lots of photos and it's easy to understand the progressions.
Very well organized with good explanation of progressions. Excited to start the program.
So informative and written in language that is so easy to understand for anyone at any level of fitness training!
Love the bits of humor as well! Reminds me not to take my fitness so seriously...while still taking it seriously!
