Cali-WHAT? The Correct Word for Bodyweight Training

I’ve heard bodyweight training being called many incorrect words like:

Calisthetics
Caliesthetics
Calesthetics
Calesthenics
Calenetics

The right word to describe bodyweight exercise known as street workout and street fitness is:

Callisthenics (British English)
Calisthenics (American English)
/ˌkalɪsˈθɛnɪks/ or /ˌkæləsˈθenɪks/

Origin
Early 19th century: from Greek kallos ‘beauty’ + sthenos ‘strength’ + “-ics”.
