Who is Frank Medrano?
At the About Me page on FrankMedrano.com, Frank explains that he got hooked on calisthenics the first time he tried a few bodyweight exercises on a pull up bar:
“It gave me control of my mind and body and ultimately gave me strength to master and dominate anything I wished to accomplish.”
Calisthenics, for those who don’t know, are workouts typically performed without the use of machines or equipment. They generally consist of repeated (rhythmical) motor movements. Sit-ups are a common callisthenic, for example, as are push-ups.
Frank has attracted a large following of fans on social media. His Facebook page has 3.2 million likes, for example, and he has 550,000 subscribers on YouTube. His Instagram regularly features pictures of him doing callisthenic workouts around the world and has 187,000 followers.

eBooks and Training Programs
Want to look as good as Frank? He sells three different eBooks that promise to teach you different levels of calisthenics, including Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced calisthenics.
Each eBook promises to help you achieve your fitness goals over the course of an 8 week program. In the Beginner program, those fitness goals including burning fat and building muscle. In the Intermediate program, the goals include building more muscle, boosting endurance, and getting shredded.
The eBooks come with catchy names. The Beginner program is called Superhuman Origins while the Intermediate program is called Superhuman Rising. Frank has not yet named his Advanced Calisthenics program.
Along with specific training exercises, Frank recommends different foods to eat to support your fitness goals. Frank himself is vegan, although not all of the meals he recommends are purely vegan.
You can download each eBook online and read it on any device that accepts PDFs, like your laptop, desktop, Android, iPhone, tablet, and most other electronic devices.
Each eBook is available for $30.
You can buy Frank Medrano-branded apparel, which costs $30 to $50 for tank tops, t-shirts, hoodies, and sweat shorts.
There are about 100 pieces of apparel available at the online store. Some of them feature slogans like Eat Clean, Train Dirty, while others feature Frank Medrano’s name.
Apparel is available for both men and women.
Frank is affiliated with a supplement manufacturer called Function Supplements. These supplements promise to contain all natural formulas and “the world’s finest natural ingredients.” The supplements were designed by Frank himself.
You can purchase Function Supplements online at Amazon.com or at TigerFitness.com. Specific supplements include:
— Function 1NE Probiotic Supplement with 35 Billion CFU ($27.99 for 30 capsules)
— Function 2WO BCAA Solution ($39.99 for a one month supply)
There are the only two supplements currently available through Function Supplements, although Frank may be releasing more in the future. Both supplements are vegan-friendly.
Frank also advocates using a device called the Lebert Equalizer. This piece of fitness equipment was manufactured by Lebert Fitness. It’s designed to be portable and multi-purpose while working the arms, chest, back, and core muscles like no other piece of equipment can.
The device comes in the form of two Equalizer bars. You place the bars shoulder length apart on the ground and then do handstands and other calisthenics movements on the bars.
There are two versions of the Lebert Equalizer, including:
— Lebert Equalizer: $99.99
— Lebert Equalizer XL – Black: $109.99
The main difference between the two is that the XL version is designed for people taller than 6’1”. It also allows for deeper stretches in the dips and full extension in the vertical rows, which should make exercises more effective.
