Callan Pinckney came up with the idea behind a very different type of exercise program in the 1970s and she called it Callanetics. Callanetics is different from the other popular low impact exercise programs because it teaches you how to move precisely and slowly so you use each group of muscles individually. The simple movements are very effective at toning and shaping your muscles and building strength and flexibility.
Callanetics uses very sharp muscle movements to increase your metabolism and help your body burn off calories quickly and more efficiently than other low impact programs. Doing Callanetics can change the shape of your body and you can drop inches from your frame. Callanetics works for people of all ages and people in any shape.
Because you do the exercises in Callanetics slowly and precisely, you get much better results than you would using any other type of exercise program that you can find. One benefit of Callanetics is you don’t have to buy special equipment to do the program. You use your own body as resistance. Doing Callanetics can help you be more coordinated and have a better sense of your body and its movements.
Traditional Callanetics does not claim to help you lose weight but the CardioCallanetics program uses similar exercises but does so in a way that helps you lose weight and tone up at the same time by doing slow muscle movements.
The only way to lose weight with any type of Callanetics program is to watch what you eat and make sure you don’t consume too many calories in one day. For best results, you need do the Callanetics program a minimum of three times a week. That is pretty easy considering you can do the exercises anytime and anywhere.
