5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelieveable, amazing results! June 20, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
First of all, I hate exercise....can't stick to anything and be consistent! About 10 years ago, my Mom introduced me to Callanetics. I remembered getting amazing results from it, and decided to try it yet again. These exercises are quite difficult at first, but the results are incredible and the key word is FAST! You SEE the results much quicker than any exercise or weightlifting. In 5 sessions, my stomach was much flatter, thighs tighter, and I could see muscles in my upper arms that I never knew were there. My husband even commented on how great I looked, and I felt that way too! I began Callanetics to get in shape for a wedding in Las Vegas...I see the pictures of myself and can't believe it's me! My body is so much fitter and tighter than it's ever been. I no longer need the tape as I have basically memorized it, but use it now and then. I highly recommend this for smaller framed people (I'm 5 ft). It lengthens your muscles and tones without making you bulky. It also makes us appear taller and leaner. The accompanying book is a great way to review the whole program and the before and after pictures are amazing....a must-see for beginners, if those pictures don't get you motivated, nothing will! I love Callan and thank her so much for Callanetics, an exercise I can stick with for life!

5.0 out of 5 stars astonishing! March 29, 2005
By rsw155
Format:VHS Tape
Before ordering this video, I did my research to find excellent reviews and high ratings for Callanetics but I never really found before/after photos, which are usually a big inspiration for me. I wanted to know how it worked, how it felt, did you look different after one hour? So, for the sake of everyone else out there like me, I had to write regarding the questions that weighed on my mind. I found repetitive statements everywhere and I wanted to add information that I was curious about but could not find. So here goes:

THE VIDEO ITSELF

The Callanetics video itself is dated. 1986 I do believe is the original publishing date. There is no fancy stage production, no fancy clothes and extremely low key, soft, meditative music. I am not thrown off by this and as long as I enjoy something, it does not matter to me. I have always done Pilates and instead of giving me energy afterwards, I was usually so relaxed I would go straight to bed. I can tell that this video will do the same for me. I take time for myself and let myself relax... as this is also highly recommended by the instructor herself, Callan Pickney.

THE INSTRUCTOR

Callan Pickney is very patient, demonstrative and informative. She does not begin an exercise without thorough explanation and is constantly giving advice as to how to perform better or what exactly to avoid. Her voice is very soft and soothing. There are no harsh tones or words from her, only encouragement.

THE EXERCISES

The exercises are not hard, just a little time consuming. Concentration is a must as the most movement required from Callanetics is a little stretching and only an inch or less movement in every pose! Hard to believe, right? You will feel it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best for getting tight and here's the proof February 10, 2006
Format:VHS Tape
Okay here's the numbers from January 3rd to February 3 2006.

January 3: Bust 35 Waist 28 Hips 38.5

Febraury 3: Bust 32 Waist 25.5 Hips 35

If you look that up in a clothing catalog I used Victorias secret

that means I went down from an 8/10 to a 2/4. I have actually gotten a juniors size 3 up and zipped.

I divded the workout into 2 days I did upper body and abs one day, lower body the next and continued to alternate. I walked 3 miles a day (Work and back) and watched total calories consumed.

A co-worker and I were talking the other day. We're both the same height (under 5.5) I outweigh her by a good 7 pounds (120's)

she's closer to an 8/10 and i'm not. The difference is the Callenetics. I've got a lot of videos I've tried and many have worked but as I get older, I don't want to work out with video after video. So it truly comes down to callanetics and walking. It's so simple after you learn the routine you don't even need the book or video so you can pass it on. It's no impact, designed for people with bad backs. Don't do it in front of small children though because you will cuss when your learning. On other thing try to resist the temption of jumping up and getting the tape measure because after every exercise you just know that you've lost inches. Oh If you can find a copy of the book, get it! Not only are the photographs an inspiration but also there's exercises included that are not in the video as well as a maintenance program that takes only 15 minutes a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive results in 5 workouts October 22, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I'm a 37 year old athlete and avid video fitness junkie- mother of three. After this year's long softball season ended, I looked for a video that would give my muscles a break from the weights,intervals and other conditioning routines I've used from my FIRM and Voight videos. I looked for an anaerobic workout which would allow my muscles (and aching knees!) to heal. I tried and hated Pilates. I switched from outdoor running to treadmill walking and started the Callanetics program. It's been just over 3 weeks and at 3X / week, I can't believe my body! Even though I'm at an appropriate weight, (BMI is 22.7), I always felt like when I reach my best in season condition, I have sausage-looking legs and lumpy muscles in my arms. I'm watching the change slowly happen. My bulky quad/thigh muscles are becoming smooth. My calf, hams, and glut muscles are starting to look so nice. I can't imagine that I'll ever get there, but the program promises a long, smooth dancer physique. It's looking promising! Those round muscles in my arms? They feel like they're actually stretching. These are the things I can warn you about: It's not a hard workout in that I'm not tired during or after the workout. You'll have to position yourself and repetitively move one body part isometrically (small 1/4 inch moves). You are warned not to move to the point of straining. I don't. I figure I have all winter to stretch these muscles out. HOWEVER, I feel more "all over", deep tissue sensation for DAYS after a workout. Much more that I do with many reps of light weights! It's not pain, but I feel it! Within a week, I was measurably more flexible as well. What a great feeling!

I do not hesitate to recommend this workout as part of a well rounded fitness program. It is impressive in its ability to provide safe sculpting, even for those of us in athletic rehab, so to speak. It should be alternated with a good 30 minute aerobic program.
