Meet dmitriy semenov

About Dmitriy

 Presently, and now for the last 3 years, I have been a dedicated  practitioner of Calisthenics. Calisthenics is a form of exercise  consisting of a variety of movements which exercise large muscle groups  (gross motor movements), such as running, standing, grasping, pushing,  etc. These exercises are often performed rhythmically and with minimal
equipment, as body-weight exercises. 

My name is Dmitriy Semenov and I am a Mind-Body Lifestyles coach at Ultimate Calisthenics.

I am a former professional and national world juniors hockey player; an  amateur-level athlete in boxing, muay thai, volleyball, and soccer, as  well as placed 3rd in Canada in partner-stunt acrobatics.

 Presently, and now for the last 3 years, I have been a dedicated  practitioner of Calisthenics. Calisthenics is a form of exercise  consisting of a variety of movements which exercise large muscle groups  (gross motor movements), such as running, standing, grasping, pushing,  etc. These exercises are often performed rhythmically and with minimal
equipment, as bodyweight exercises. 

Throughout my athletic career, I have also thrived and conquered  numerous very serious injuries to my knees, elbow, wrists, and a serious  debilitating back condition. 

My educational background is in health, fitness, and sports psychology at York University's Faculty of Health.

I choose to run group classes and personal training at Ultimate  Calisthenics because this brand new, state of the art facility is fully  equipped for weight, strength, and cardio training,  as well as, MOST  IMPORTANTLY, set up for body-weight exercises, or as now known to us as  Calisthenic Movements or just Calisthenics.

Body weight exercises  are essential  as they increase blood flow throughout the body, improve  body mobility and muscle flexibility-getting you ready for whichever  jobs that you may do or whatever daily routines that you have.

 This ultimately is the key to mental as well as physical health which  are necessarily interconnected. Body weight exercises, when performed  properly with full range of motion, will enable you to perform great as  well as feel great. This is how our bodies were meant to move throughout  the evolutionary history over millions of years.

Only once we  reconnect with our bodies through natural body movements that we may  then add weights for strength training,  and high intensity interval  training and cardio exercises.

The fitness industry very often  will tell you otherwise: do weights and cardio and "eat healthy"- as if  these concepts are self-explanatory.

Being a Mind-Body Lifestyles  Coach at Ultimate Calisthenics, I aim to educate and inform you so that  you gain an understanding of the big picture of health.

We will  take you from zero to hero and establish a concrete and individualized  fitness and nutrition program for your personal mind, body, and  lifestyle.

I will personally assess your habits, your daily  routines, movements required by your job or absence of movement which is  very often the case, your eating and sleep patterns, as well as mental  stressors in your lives. Only then an effective program can be developed  for you and you will truly be on your way to optimizing your mind, your  body, and ultimately your lifestyle.  No matter whether you are a man  or a woman, competitive athlete or not at all, no matter your age, the  approach is always the same:

-health and habit training

-injury prevention

-sport-specific as well as job-specific training

-body optimization in terms of healthy and long-term sustainable weight loss

You may contact me directly through this page or find my class schedule at Ultimate Calisthenics.

I can't wait to get started optimizing YOU and get YOU towards YOUR optimal self!

Thank you for your time and attention,

-Dmitriy and MBL Coaching Staff
