New Year. New You. See The homeless man’s workout plan


Movement is the essence of life. The simple joy of using your body to move through the world is a universal language. Exercise is a remedy that everyone can afford. Endorphins are a medicine available to everyone. Nowhere is this truer than in the case of Carlo ‘Carlos’ Giovanni Chellini, for whom vitality is his only worldly possession.

A man without a home, he still makes it to gym every day. At an outdoor gym open to the public he puts himself through his paces, doing bodyweight exercises with minimal equipment. Working out keeps him fit and lets him connect with others, both young and old.

Training has given Carlos balance in a life of uncertainty. It gives him a sense of purpose and fulfilment – something that material possessions will ever do.
