Product Description

The original and best selling Callanetics workout! Now you can actually look 10 Years Younger in 10 Hours. Callan Pinckney, author of the revolutionary best selling exercise book Callanetics (a perennial New York Times Best Seller), personally demonstrates her innovative deep muscle exercise technique that can literally shed years off your figure in hours without putting pressure on your back. Unlike other exercise programs that stress hard jerking motions, Callanetics is a series of small, gentle, precise motions consistently applied that activate the body's largest, most powerful muscles to quickly tighten hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, flatten the tummy, lift the bust and firm under arms and tone the entire body. It will also dramatically improve your posture. You will feel the difference after one hour and most people will actually see a difference after two hours. By following the simple 60 minute Callanetics work out twice a week, the body you always dreamed about is only hours away. This Original Callanetics workout, available on DVD from the Callanetics Management Company, is the same hugely popular exercise programme which was first released over 20 years ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic effects, always. 30 Oct 2010
I have been exercising with various keep-fit videos for the last 10 years, everything from Cindy Crawford and Elle Macpherson to the latest ones with Davina McCall, and I must admit that I go back to Callanetics time and time again. I am not very fit, in fact 3 sessions per week with workout dvds and walking the dog everyday for an hour is all the exercise I get. And there have been times in my life when I totally went off exercising for 2 or 3 months with the usual excuses: no time, too tired, the results won't be visible if I don't do the dvd every day etc. But luckily the Callanetics video is there to get me back into shape very quickly if I have been a bit slack for a couple of months. I find that it gives results very quickly, especially as far as "pillows" on the bum are concerned. I find the DVD too boring to do on a regular basis and use it only once a week or so but even with infrequent use it has a very good effect on the body.

The exercises are challenging, and I remember that when I first got the dvd a few years ago and enthusiastically did the whole 50 minute routine twice a week for a couple of months, I could never do all those hundreds of stomach repetitions without stopping and taking a breather. The instructor promises that as you build strength you'll be able to do them all but I never seemed able to - perhaps if you attempt the dvd 4 times a week that might happen, but it always feels like a killer to me with my once a week usage. However, that is what Callanetics is about. If you've never done Callanetics before, be prepared for plenty of repetitions! You won't find a hundred different exercises on this video, in fact many of them are not strenuous at all and are even quite gentle, such as the various stretches that don't require too much effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars finally I've found it !! 18 Dec 2010
Sorry for my English but I'm French and it's been a long time since I haven't wrote in English.
I practice Callanetics here in Tours but with the video I can do it at home too !! In France, it is impossible to find any DVD of it, and I was so happy to find it here !! Thanks a lot.
Concerning the package it was perfect and the time took to ship too ! And it was cheaper than many propositions I have received for second hand DVD !
So now I have to quit, must go and have a lesson of callanetics !!

3.0 out of 5 stars Same exercises but on DVD - good 7 Jun 2012
I used Callanetics ( VHS) when I was in my teens and It helped me achieved an amazing figure. I stopped when I changed to DVD player and found that there was no DVD of this amazing programme! Needless to say I put on weight. But I do remember how fast it worked and the intense pain after my first attempt. The pain is worth it. I am delighted to find this on DVD now! I look forward to reacquainting myself with my previously toned body. This exercise works and it works astonIshingly fast, just be prepared to feel like you have been in the ring with Mike Tyson ( and he spent the entire time pummelling your bum, jelly belly and bingo wings into shape at lightening speed)

My Only critique of this is that the DVD case was broken when I recieved it so the DVD was susceptible to scratches.

5.0 out of 5 stars You WILL get results from this! 14 Jun 2013
I first bought this in the early 90s in video format. I watched it through as you are supposed to before attempting and thought to myself 'easy'

I then started the routine .. I can honestly say I had to keep stopping and worse never thought I could do the whole routine with ease! My legs felt like lead weights on a couple of the exercises but I persevered.

The next day I couldn't move! I figured I must have been doing something right and although I thought I may never be able to do all the exercises with ease I continued to give it my best shot .. surprisingly, my body started to get tight and toned very quickly!

I have progressed now onto the DVD and it is the only fitness DVD that I go back to regularly. All the exercises are slow deep muscle movements and only require the tiniest of movements .. some of which appear to be based on ballet but as Callan Pinkney was ballet trained it is not surprising! Don't let this put you off ladies as you do not need to be a tiny frame and 5ft in height to do this .. I am a great example of this as 5 ft 10 andnot the slightest of builds! You will get results. I miss out one of the exercises as I have dodgey knees but still I love doing my Callanetics. I hope any ladies out there who are looking for something different will try it. There are other DVDs out there of Callanetics but stick to Callan Pinkney .. before she died she became concerned as people were adapting her exercises. Anyway, I believe her legacy will live on .. beautiful, tight fit bodies! Try it and you will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better then pilates 14 Oct 2012
By bin
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I used to do Callanetics in the 80s ... but with the death of the vhs I was doing the exercises from memory. It helped me recover from a terrible car accident. I used it again when my body was frozen from too many hours of work (and neglect). When I started back on a "get in shape" routine, I decided to try pilates. I thought this would be an advance from Callanetics. I was wrong. This dvd costs 5 times as much as the newer dvd's but it's 10 times as rewarding. Turns out I'd forgotten a lot of the routine, but the results are amazing in a very short time. Well explained and well paced. Callanetics.
