A group which specialises in training without using apparatus or expensive machines is hosting an exhibition in Corby town centre this Saturday (August 17).

The group, called The Compound, uses calisthenic techniques – which means training without using equipment –such as pull-ups, push-ups, dips, squats and circuit training.

They normally meet at the William Knibb Centre in Kettering on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 6.30 and 9pm.

On Saturday, members will be demonstrating some of their techniques near Primark in Willow Place between 10am and 3pm.

Danny Brooks, one of the members of The Compound, said: “Our sport follows very closely to gymnastics, especially the rings event.

“I call it a sport because we hold and support events all over the country and compete in championships abroad too, most recently Norway and Madrid.

“The plan on the day is to get the kids involved and hold some basic competitions on the pull up bars and so on, to give people a feel for what kind of training we do.

“We will also hold short, staggered, ten minute demonstrations of more advanced workouts throughout the day.”

More information about The Compound can be found on their Facebook page, their Youtube channel, their Twitter feed or at their website.

Last year, one of the group members Anton Guidera, attended the opening of a new outdoor gym in Hall Meadow Park, Kettering Leisure Village (pictured above).
