What is an inspirational workout that combines doesn’t use free weights or weight machines, but instead causes each exerciser to use their own weight on bars or on the floor? It’s called Bartendaz.
The Bartendaz Workout has caught the attention of schools and at-risk youth everywhere by using calisthenics or acrobatic workouts designed to promote flexibility and muscle tone.
Hassan Yasin, founder of Bartendaz Workout, a who spent time behind bars in his mid 20′s, turned his life around and began his non-profit, Giant Thinking and began motivational speaking with topics including gang prevention and substance abuse awareness.
After being approached to create a program to get kids to stop cutting class, Yasin developed the Bartendaz Workout that uses exercises that takes the aggression of at-risk youth and has them take it out on the bars, or doing exercises such as sit-ups or pull-ups. The Bartendaz Workout has attracted clients such as Ludacris and the New York City Apollo Circus of Soul, for its ability to mix acrobatic exercises and the use of simple bars in order to tone muscles and build strength.
18 year old Bartendaz fan Justin Kemp says, “I feel challenged. I love when I’m challenged because … it keeps me on top of my game.”
