Calisthenics is the term used to describe a wide variety of flexibility, strength and cardiorespiratory conditioning activities. Specific muscles may be targeted by selecting certain exercises which isolate them. Calisthenics normally can be done anywhere at any time without equipment. They can be performed with other people in a class setting, or individually. Calisthenics are often done in a circuit training fashion alternating between flexibility, cardiorespiratory and strength exercises.
