Thank you for the detailed information Shalindra!
I always do my workouts with the DVD's, i find it alot more entertaining and it reminds me of the exact positions, tho sometimes i skip that step.
Actually had to stop it for 10 days because i bruised my tendon!

But i totally agree with Callan - the new and changed callanetics routines are not as effective and way easier, I remember finishing the evolution dvd and im like 'That's it???'
Callan truly was an amazing teacher.

Will get the dvd asap!

It is worth it to me Candice. I remember finally memorizing all the movements and then I just used the videos for references on form. This DVD takes that to a new level I think. Form is dicussed in great length for each of the movements discussed.Can you get the same information off her other dvds? Probably, but you would need to hang on to each word ,or as I did, pull out a callentics book and really read every word. I actually did this last week or the week before while I was waiting to order the dvd and still got good information from the dvd. As the dvd says, it is to be used with the other routines, whichever you do. This is basically a dvd on form, to show you how to make the workout more extreme to get better results just in the count and how you move.
For $12 I would have wished it was longer but this is a reference dvd that is invaluable now that Callan has passed. Her Callanetics have been changed and not to her delight. This shows you how Callan wanted Callanetics to be done.

Recieved the Secret of Callanetics in the mail yesterday. I will have to watch again to do a complete reciew but basically she takes the movements from the basic program and then explains how to get the maximum benefits. She uses 3 certified instructors to illustrate the movements expressing pro points and pointing out bad form. I think it is a very useful video, I paid $12 through total fitness dvd.

10 in10 generally takes me most the day to complete, I know that sounds crazy but I do a little and then sit or do something else for a few minutes to ease the pain.Well I call it 10 in 10, it is labeled basic Callanetics in the books.

I am going to order through totalfitness dvd eventually,when I can swing it, but for now just useing the full explanations in the books.

Shalindra, thank you- I found the video on youtube. I'm really interested in what she has to say about her own workout and diet/form. But yeah you're right, I love her soothing voice!

You live in the US right? You can only order it if you have Aramex shipping services.
Amazon uk. will send it to an aramex adress in the uk and they forward it to wherever you live. It costs extra though.
I have that service but haven't gotten around to ordering yet.

Are you going to order for sure? If so maybe you could make a copy for me and I'll trade you for a different DVD.

Hi there,

I think the AM/PM programm would be perfect for you since it starts slow and is gentle on the muscles. It's a 20 minute workout for morning and evening.
I have a copy available and if you want to I could send it to you.

Please let me know :)

Candice I am looking for this secrets vid, I did find some snippets on you tube, I am leaving messages at the different video suppliers to see if we can find The Secrets of Callanetics. From what I see she goes into great detail on form, I realize that information is probably in the books but I think I miss that soothing voice of hers as well.

I did find this available through the amazon.uk store, but it says unavailable through my amazon, not sure I understand that one.

Total FitnessDVD can get The Secrets of Callanetics for $12.95, going to order myself a copy but here is what Mary @ Total Fitness said about the DVD
"
Re: The Secrets of Callanetics
I can get it again if you want, but just so you know it's not a workout - it's mostly just an interview with Callan (90% of the video is) and then parts of it show form pointers.
Do you still want it? I only discontinued it because too many people thought it was a workout."

I have an extra copy of the older original book, Callanetics Countdown. It's perfect for beginners who may have difficulty getting started. There is a daily routine starting slow.

It's what I'm using because I have MCS and my over active immune system attacks my muscles when chemicals are released during exercise so I have to REALLY start slow.

I'd like to trade for any Callanetics DVD except Evolution which I have but can't use yet.

Hey everyone :)

I would like to trade Callanetics videos / Books with anyone of you!
I know now it's hard to find some of the older videos but I was lucky enough
to get my hands on a few. It would be a fun way for us to get a little different workouts.

I'll just list the videos I have and would like to trade so if you're interested please msg me

- Callanetics 10 years younger in 10 hours (60 min)
- Super Callanetics (90 min)
- AM/PM Callanetics (each 27 min)
- Quick Callanetics Stomach (20 minutes)
- Callanetics Evolution (without Callan) (60 minutes)


Note: I'm especially interested in a video called 'Secrets of Callanetics'
