    Actress Katie Cassidy, who stars as Laurel Lance on The CW's series Arrow, mentions CALLANETICS® as one of the ways she got in such amazing shape for her role:

    "I want to be as authentic as possible. I didn't want to just be like, "Okay, they're making me train with a trainer three or four times a week." I was like, "I'm going to bust my ass!" I actually ended up with three different trainers. I had a boxing trainer -- a fighting trainer -- then a weightlifting trainer, and then I did CALLANETICS. So it was all... Read More...

    Diets Don't Work...

    Diets don't work. I’ve been saying that for my entire career because it's true. Just thinking about dieting automatically makes most of us feel deprived. Even the word diet misleads us into believing that eating high- quality, delicious, and naturally low-fat foods is a temporary activity, rather than the way we're supposed to be eating all the time. What you can learn to do is rethink the way you eat, learn what it is your body needs, and satisfy its true hunger.

    Posted on August 18th, 2016
    Callanetics in Triple Slow Motion

    The movements in Callanetics are tiny, delicate, gentle, and precise. They are done very slowly, as I have always said 'in triple slow motion'. Think of Callanetics as meditation in motion. In this way you reach deep into the body to work the large muscles, as though working through them layer by layer. Never jerk and never bounce. Know how tiny one quarter to one half of an inch is. Measure it! The movement is a pulse. If the direction calls for 25 repetitions, think of it as 25 pulses. Do that amount of movement slowly and gently. Only... Read More...

    Most women view their bodies as flawed . When someone comes to me for her first class, I ask her to stand in front of the mirrors and look objectively at her body. (I ask students not to wear tights - black tights hide multitudes of sins - or chic, belted leotards. I want them to wear something comfortable, yet revealing.) I ask her, "What would you like to change? What is it that you do not like about your body?" With nine out of ten of my students, the flaw they think they see is not a flaw... Read More...

    Our bodies are designed to be active, throughout our entire lives. But we've reduced our physical activity by nearly 75 percent since 1900. We know more about dieting and exercise and reasons to keep fit than ever - and yet we keep getting fatter and fatter. Obesity doesn't only mean that you look fat. Obesity is actually a disease that greatly increases your probability of developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and many other ailments, as well as an endless cycle of self-criticism and doubt.

    Total Relaxation
    by Callan Pinckney


    Over and over, you'll find me asking you to relax your body totally while doing an exercise. It's very difficult for people who haven't experienced Callanetics to understand what this means. Clearly, it is quite impossible to simultaneously contract and relax a muscle you are working-but that is not what I mean. What I'm asking you to do is not to forcefully tense your muscles-the ones you're working or any of the others. Tension-any more contraction than is necessary to perform the required movement-makes additional work for your muscles... Read More...

    There's no such thing as the Tooth Fairy, and there's no such thing as a perfect body. But Callanetics can help you have a better body-a body you're proud of.

    Having a beautiful body means different things to different people. One may be that you look good, in or out of clothes. Another- and I like this one especially-is that you spring out of bed in the morning, eager and ready to face the day, instead of feeling so tired that you tell yourself, "I'll just lie here for five more minutes."...

And feeling in control of your body actually helps to reduce stress. My goal is to help you to develop a positive attitude - towards your body and your life."

    I'm just too tired. I hear that all the time (and have often said it myself). But there are two different types of fatigue: weariness, when your vitality and creativity, your inner energy, seems to have drained all away; and fatigue, when you are physically exhausted from lack of sleep, illness, poor eating, stress, overwork, etc., etc., etc.

    Power of the Mind

    There is little dispute these days that the mind and body are totally interconnected; and I am truly thankful for that. Some people seem to be born with a natural talent for controlling their bodies through the mind; others learn it with a great deal of effort; still others don't have a clue about what it means.

    Whether scientifically provable or not, the mind can have such power over the body as to alleviate pain and help heal physical conditions. The converse is unfortunately even more common- the mind can also create pain and disease. Back problems are... Read More...

    With all the World Cup action underway it's a great time to remind the men in your life just how effective Callanetics is for them too.

    When Callan was invited to Templehoff Airforce Base to teach Callanetics to the soldiers she was shocked at how difficult they found the exercises. As they attempted the Hip & Behind exercises they couldn't even lift their legs. One solider described her telling them "You're a bunch of Tinker Bells, powder puffs, mamby pambys". Of course they eventually all fell in love with Callan and her exercises. ‘God, this is incredible,’ one... Read More...

    Callan's Slender Secrets Part 4

    For the fourth in our series of Callan's Slender Secrets, Callan talks about the Bathroom. You can print the prompt card at the end of the article to keep with you as a reminder.

    THE BATHROOM

    Callan says:
    “Throw those scales away! They are ridiculous. We are maniacs with numbers. When
    you are doing Callanetics, the scale can show weight gain because muscle weighs
    more than ‘flab’. Don’t get stuck on numbers. You will look magnificent.”

    THE KITCHEN

    Physiology of Callanetics Exercises

    Physiology of Callanetics Exercises
    By Patty Brittingham, R.N., M.A.

    The CALLANETICS program is a unique method of anaerobic-type exercise that is recognized as one of the most thorough muscle toning routines on the fitness scene today. It is best described as a combination of isotonic and mild isometric work that uses a very small range of motion of about one inch "pressing" type movements and very controlled "pulsing" type contractions of muscles. These characteristics make the exercises neither purely isotonic nor isometric.

    The program is extremely safe and designed so that anyone can... Read More...

    Callanetics with Nigella Lawson...

    As we approach the end of January, it's time to really focus on those New Year Resolutions. Don't let your enthusiasm slip. Many of us hate to exercise but if we can keep motivated at this time of year we are more likely to achieve our goals. Even celebrities struggle with exercise. Take a look at what Nigella Lawson told the Sunday Times about her feelings toward exercise:

    "I always longed for adventure. Even when I was a baby, my mother told me they had to put a harness on me to keep me from running away. I left America when I was 20, intending to return six months later. I didn’t return for 11 years.

    I have many foreign ‘souvenirs’ from my travels. I have a deep wound on the back of my head inflicted by a Rhodesian tribesman's ax. I was helping a government medical inspector and giving injections. The sun was in my eyes, and I couldn't find the vein in a boy's... Read More...
