Would there be a noticeable difference in results between one month of training calisthenics, and one month of weightlifting at a gym?

    Are you talking about overall fitness? Lifting strength? Static strength? Endurance? What sort of a workout are you doing at the gym? Your question lacks sufficient detail to provide any sort of an answer.

  • There are different types of strength, speed strength, explosiv strength anf maximal strength and you can train them in different ways via calisthenics, gym and others. .. depending on your goals so you should be more specific what you mean.

    In my opinion, it's still unclear.

    Namely that the person asking the question never clarified what exactly a "gym workout" is or what criteria they're judging the two events by. To me, it's like trying to answer a question on Stack Overflow of "What's the difference between doing an application in a function-oriented language and doing an application in an office?" Nikita above has their own interpretation of the question, but that requires us basically writing a new question based on assumptions. Ultimately, if we want to answer calisthenics versus weight-lifting, we should ask that question.

    @Alec along with what Sean says, what kind of gym workout? Weights? Treadmill/exercise bike? Spin classes? Circuit/WOD type workouts? It's not really answerable in the current form, even with the edits.
