He says what makes Elysium exclusive and different than rest of the workout places is the fact that not the same usual workout happens here; it is very different and unique! It is fun when you are being creative and different with your workout. Then it just isn’t an exercise form; it is an art.

One has to be physically strong, mentally stronger.’ Quite upbeat on the fact that he would be able to motivate more people to step in Calisthenics, he sees himself being the fitness role model for the world very soon.
