    Callanetics is a way of life...

    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.

    When was the last time you felt strong, vital, and healthy?

    This is where Callanetics can help you. It's so easy to forget that the most incredible exercise machine ever invented is your own wonderful body. I found that out when I invented Callanetics, and I became stronger, more vital, and healthier than I’d ever been.

    Callanetics is a way of life that enriches and strengthens your body, mind, and spirit. It is what I call a cross-training tool to enhance the skills you already possess. If you already jog or swim or dance, Callanetics will help you jog or swim or dance better; if you sing, Callanetics will improve your voice and your lung power; if you are tense and tired, Callanetics will revitalise your energy. So many of my students were resistant to discussion about weight because they'd been told so many times (and by so many people) that the reason they were fat is because they're lazy. These people discovered that Callanetics worked where other programs had failed because it taught them to proceed at their own pace, and was entirely non judgmental. Every tiny bit of progress was cause for celebration.
