“Simple pull-ups once changed my life completely from negative to positive and they did the same to thousands of people around me after sharing this positive change. Now I believe that simple pull-ups can change, inspire and motivate for better everyone around the world”

Māris Šlēziņš Founder and chairman of the WSWCF @marisslezins

BACKGROUND

In 2011 Latvian Street Workout Association (founders of World Street Workout and Calisthenics Federation) together with company “Latvian Railroad” organized “Latvian Pull-Up Day” for the first time. It was a one day pull-up competition in 50 cities of Latvia with super-final live on TV at the end of the day. This event collected more than 3000 participants and gained huge attention among the whole society. After the success in first year, event in year 2013 was organized in 60 cities and collected around 8000 participants (1.6% of the economically active population in Latvia) together making more than 70 000 pull-ups within one day

IDEA OF THE EVENT

World is full of negative energy that is affecting our lives. We want to unite the world – all people without discrimination of their age, sex, nationality, race or religion – by helping them to unload their negative energy through exercising (pull-ups) and replacing it with positive emotions.

The Pull-Up exercise is good measurement of one’s physical condition, as the person uses only its body weight for exercising. It is a natural and non-injuring movement, which can be performed by people of all ages, both men and women. The advantage of the Pull-Up exercise lies in possibility to quickly exhaust the physical strength and unload the negative energy by substituting it with positive emotions for the work done.

We offer a combination of exercising pleasure and charitable action (purpose). In September 10 people all around the world will pull-up and at the same time will do good things by donating money or goods for a previously specified charity purpose within their country. Even if the person currently lacks possibility to donate, his participation itself will contribute to the scale of the event and thus will help to increase the recognition of the event among people, organizations and companies in future. The charity purposes may be different – to help disabled persons, children, animals, to build new or reconstruct existing sports grounds, where people can exercise and unload negative energy throughout the year.

Find the place where you can do Pull-Ups and the specified charity target of this place in a special Pull-Up point map , visit this place by yourself and your friends and family members and take part in the most global human strength and charity project in the world. You will also get to know how much Pull-Ups you can make, how much Pull-Ups your friends can make, how much Pull-Ups your country can make in comparison with others, as well as how much Pull-Ups the whole world can make within one day.

In case if you can’t find any Pull-Up Point in your city or country and you would like to organize one, for more details please contact us by writting to: info@worldpullupday.com
