Calisthenics in Stuttgart – check out these three parks!

Hi guys! Do you like to be active in the open air? I do! I prefer a cold breeze of wind around my sweating head while exercising over being locked into a steamy room in a fitness center. So you can imagine what my answer was when a friend of mine, Maxim Ebers, asked me if I want to join him for a workout at the calisthenics park in Stuttgart-Degerloch. But don’t worry if you don’t live in this area of Stuttgart, there are two more opportunities for calisthenics in Stuttgart.

Introductory class at CrossFit Animarum in Stuttgart

Hi guys! Do you feel fit? I actually didn’t for quite a while. I had too much work to do and not enough time for sports and fitness. That had to stop. You can imagine that it felt like guidance from above when Vale from CrossFit Animarum in Stuttgart reached out to me and asked if I wanted to come over for an introduction. Sure I wanted to! 🙂

Secretary Run Stuttgart 2013

We raised 150 Euro for Brustkrebs Deutschland e.V.! Thank you very, very much for your support guys.

For all of you who are new to this blog, I participated in a charity run last Thursday called “Secretary Run”. It was a 5 km Funrun, starting at Stafflenbergstrasse and leading around Uhlandshöhe.


It was quite a small event, I think we were around 35 runners. But it was a very relaxed atmosphere and everybody was in a good mood.

We were extremely lucky with the weather. Thursday was a rather cold and rainy day in Stuttgart. But the rain stopped five minutes before we started our run and at the end, even the setting sun came out to cheer us up on our last kilometer. Smiley

Here are some impressions from the track:


From Stafflenbergstrasse, you have a lovely view over Stuttgart. I wouldn’t mind living there.. Zwinkerndes Smiley


The track led through very nice residential areas. I haven’t been in this part of Stuttgart very often in the past so the run included a bit of sightseeing as well.


As I said, it was a very small event so they haven’t blocked the streets, only put up these signs… Smiley


Here we come…


… and there we go… Smiley mit geöffnetem Mund


And that’s the view we got rewarded with on the finish line… nice, hum?!


I really enjoyed participating in the Secretary Run and I will definitely be in next year, too. I only hope they manage to motivate some more runners and thus raise more money for Brustkrebs Deutschland, that would be nice.
