Callan Pinckney, the creator of Callanetics, gives a full hour of clear, complete instructions on how to perform every movement in this 30 minute beginner's routine.
Unlike other exercise programs that stress hard jerking motions, Beginning Callanetics is a safe, gentle, easy-to-learn routine designed especially for the beginner. If you have never exercised before or if you are trying to get back into a regular routine, Beginning Callanetics has been developed so you can learn the fundamentals of Callanetics at your own pace.
Callanetics is a series of small, gentle, precise motions consistently applied that quickly tighten hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, flatten the tummy, lift the bust, firm underarms, tone the entire body and dramatically improve your posture. Featuring exercises for every part of the body, Beginning Callanetics also includes a special bonus section of exercises to improve and strengthen your back.
Callan Pinckney, creator of CALLANETICS®, was raised in Savannah, Georgia. She trained in classical ballet for twelve years and studied other forms of dance, movement and exercise. She had to restore her own body to health when, after an eleven-year backpacking odyssey around the world, the rigours of travel, combined with a congenital back defect, led to physical collapse. On her return to the U.S. she experimented with various exercise techniques, using her early ballet training to develop the program which finally solved her physical problems. Callan taught her revolutionary exercise program from her New York apartment and had many famous and distinguished clients worldwide, all of whom testify that Callanetics is a unique, safe exercise system for transforming bodyshape.
