Freestyle Calisthenics: The World Is Our Gym w/ Rain Bennett
Rain Bennett is an independent international documentary filmmaker who creates projects focused on cultural or social issues, food, music, art, and health. He created the movie Raise Up: The World Is Our Gym to document the history of the art form and the new age of calisthenics. I'm beyond excited to chat with him today because I strongly believe in building bridges between disciplines to have a cross-exchange of information and ideas. I appreciate the creativity, style, and expression of movement that calisthenics contributes to the fitness community.
Rain does a ton of consulting with businesses around storytelling to help them connect with their audiences and customers. He does a phenomenal job of translating his skillset in filmmaking and storytelling into actionable items for fitness professionals to use in this new age of technology.
