David ‘Jacko’ Jackson is a former professional rugby player turned professional Strength and Conditioning coach and calisthenics athlete. A successful rugby career, including representing the world famous Barbarians, was cut short due to injury. The end of one career was the birth of another and a new found love of calisthenics was born. With no gymnastics background or calisthenics experience Jacko and Tim have applied their knowledge of training, exercise science and strength and conditioning to develop their own calisthenics skills, movement and body strength. This in turn led to the birth of the ‘School of Calisthenics’ where their love of calisthenics and learning new things came together.
Team Proverb are huge fans of both The School of Calisthenics and Jacko. We asked him what Pre-Season means to him.
