GIFTED: 30 years ago Callan Pinckney created the very first Callanetics exercise programme which was released on video and subsequently garnered worldwide fame. Now Callan has released a new version “Countdown: 30 Days To A More Beautiful Body” on DVD.
Pinckney’s first book Callanetics: 10 Years Younger in 10 Hours was first published in 1984 and spent two years at the top of the New York Best Seller list. The first video of the program, “Callanetics” was released in 1986 and became the All Time Biggest Selling fitness video in both the UK and US.
Callan Pinckney was declared the “High Priestess of the new Fitness” by Vogue magazine.
Countdown: 30 Days To A More Beautiful Body is a 30-day program designed to get your body in great shape, quickly and effectively.
Callanetics is a series of stretching and contracting exercises that activate the body’s largest
muscles groups, using tiny, gentle, precise movements, called pulses. These pulses reach deep into the muscles to give you a strong, firm body, without adding bulk.
The exercise classes are presented by Lacey Kondi and her team as they help you to take your first step towards a lovelier body.
CaIlanetics helps you defy gravity. As many students have said, Callanetics is like a face-lift for your body. Most of all, the unique movements of Callanetics strengthen and relax you at the same time.
No longer will you feel exhausted or drained after a workout. You’ll feel energized and empowered.
The Callanetics Countdown is made up of 3 levels, each one getting progressively more
challenging and included with the DVD is a 30-day recipe booklet to follow alongside the
Callanetics 30 day programme, with delicious nutritionally balanced meal suggestions and
recipes to try.
I really enjoyed this DVD and am currently on the first level of the 30-day programme. I find it leaves me feeling invigorated without feeling hot and sweaty (very good for us ladies of a certain age!).
Lacey does speak rather fast so you do have to pay attention but for those of us with hearing loss, there are great subtitles! I wish other exercise DVDs had these.
The routines are easy to understand and follow in a gentle way. This isn’t a power-based, shouty work-out.
If you are looking for something that allows you to really focus on the parts of the body you are working, why not give this one a try?
I will certainly be carrying on to complete my 30 days to get rid of those Christmas excesses!
If you can’t wait to start your Callanetics Countdown, you can find the DVD on Amazon and the other usual retail outlets priced £12.99.
