Instructor: Callan Pinckney (Instructor Profile)
For the first time Classic Callanetics presents every single exercise that makes up the original Callanetics routine, as taught by Callan Pinckney. Compiled from archive footage originally filmed for the Quick Callanetics video series. These are the exercises that revolutionized the fitness industry and deliver results that other programs can only dream of.
Callan Pinkney, author of the best-selling exercise book Callanetics, personally demonstrates her innovative deep-muscle exercise technique. Featuring a complete 60 minute routine.
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 tighten hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs; flatten the stomach; lift the bust and firm underarms and tone the entire body. It can also dramatically improve your posture. After one hour of Callanetics you will feel the effects; after a few hours of the program you should start to see the difference. By following the simple 60 minute Callanetics workout three to four times a week, the body you always dreamed of may be yours!
