Hello my name is Mehdi, better known as HYPEMAN.
I’m 26 years old, and I work as a coach at DH Transformation. I started calisthenics about 3 year ago with Mike (CEO).
He provided coaching and shared his stories and ambitions with Barbenders, and I was captivated! A year later, I was told that I could become an Ambassador. Today, I am honored to announce that I am the Community Director of Barbenders.
I strive to get as close as possible to the community and their well-being.
With my HYPE, I try to make everyone feel comfortable and at home with us.
All your questions are also welcome here.
Looking forward to meeting you at the open gym, one of our competitions, or elsewhere.

Meet Jari, a passionate mechanic with a love for calisthenics. Standing at an impressive 190cm, this towering individual defies expectations with their remarkable prowess in training front levers. While his expertise lies in fixing things under the hood, he also mastered the art of defying gravity through the discipline of calisthenics, with the front lever being his absolute favorite.
What sets Jari apart is not just their mechanical skills but the intriguing fun fact that challenges stereotypes. Despite his towering height, he achieved the front lever faster than some people he knows who are even shorter then him.

I started this sport to get fitter and for the health benefits, but when I got stronger I really wanted to learn some insane static skills. My favourite discipline is the planche. A fun fact about me is that I learnt a handstand push up way earlier than a clean muscle up
