Yay new thread! I was VERY lax over Christmas as had friends and family staying. Consequently, I feel that my body has gone slightly wobbly, so going to step it up this month and pledge 20 :cry: sessions of Callanetics (a mix of 10/10 and Cardio C.)
Good luck everyone!

laurakitty 01-02-2010 07:27 AM

I failed last month, but I am back on it this month- in for 20.

ktspencer 01-02-2010 05:49 PM

I'm in. Hello all! I'm new but I definitely would like to join the challenge. I'll do 10 hours for Jan. (this will fill in the gaps when I'm not working out with my BFF too) :)

newmomtx 01-02-2010 08:58 PM

I am in. I will try to do 10 hours this month ( 10/10 or cardiocallanetics).

Btw, I have reached the dress size of 8 (US) - almost halfway thru to my goal of 4! :clap:

zinny 01-03-2010 07:04 AM

I am back looking for that new rear! Really feeling yesterday's workout (the first Callan in months) today. I will do 12 Callanetics sessions this month.

edna_scooter 01-03-2010 07:50 AM

2 down for my goal of 16 this month. 37 hours total. My pants are almost falling off but the next size down is still very tight :annoyed:

Danipower714 01-03-2010 10:39 AM

I'm back! :D

Did an hour of Super C yesterday. Was pretty tough in parts after a few months of no callanetics, but feeling good today! :kicking:

How can I find either a video or something to watch how you do Callanetics??

I'm limited what I can do, but I'm willing to try. I have back, hip, knee & ankle problems. Just wanted to try & see if I can do this.. A girls got to at least try.

sreichfeld 01-03-2010 11:01 AM


i am back to callanetics also.. quite some time passed that i haven't done any callanetics, but starting again!!:clap:

the goal is 10 this month.
just completed one hour of 10/10

penny_lane 01-03-2010 11:04 AM

i'm pledging 20 this month :D

pballerina 01-03-2010 04:05 PM

Hello! I'm new here to this forum -- I joined because of the Callanetics threads. I have been interested in starting for a while now but never had the chance; I plan on starting tomorrow as I just got my DVDs.

I'd like to join this challange if that's alright; do I just put a goal number of hours for the month of January?

If so, my goal will be 14 hours seeing as I plan on doing Callanetics every other day.

I only have the 10/10 DVD right now, I did order Super but I accidentally ordered a VHS!! Whoops... :blush: I'll start with 10/10, though, and at some point I'll buy the Super. I'm so excited!!

ktspencer 01-03-2010 05:13 PM

lori121- I searched them on youtube and found several. There is one whole set that has the titles in another language but the video is still in English. :)

I failed miserably last month, I could do only 3 hrs after being away for 2 months. I have to get back on track and try to do 15 hrs this month, My body really needs it!!!

AprilW 01-03-2010 06:06 PM

I am in. I am going to try to do 20 again.:) I got my last session for Dec. in on NYE.

Look on You Tube. That's where I watched the clips at to see what it was all about before I ordered the dvd's.

tempted_by_food 01-05-2010 06:33 AM

enjoy...at least you got 3 hours in every lil helps, I only got half of my total in for december, but its a new month!

logging in 1 hour of evo, that makes 1 of 10

pballerina 01-05-2010 10:37 AM

Did 1 of 14 yesterday! 10/10

inertia6 01-05-2010 11:02 AM

In for 13 Hours
I just started doing the 10/10 DVD last month and I'm loving it. I'll commit to 13 hours in January. I have been doing them every other day, but I'm resting my neck today - JM's Banish Fat Boost Metabolism kicked my butt...

January goal: 13 hours
to date: 2 hours done

Question: my neck continues to hurt doing the stomach exercises. Is it alright to hold my legs with my elbows out while pulsing, or would I be better off trying to reduce the amount that I curl up so I can keep my arms straight and hands by my hips? When I hold my hands behind my neck, it feels much better, but does this reduce the effect of the exercises?

Thanks and Good luck to all!

Mulberry32 01-05-2010 12:21 PM

Cardio C done for #3

Romy@callan 01-05-2010 01:06 PM

Happy New Year !
Happy New Year 2010 to all of you !
Hope everyone is well and full of the Callanetics spirit :heart:

Happy pulsing :cool:

pballerina 01-05-2010 03:06 PM

inertia6 -- I have the same problem as you! I find that my neck hurts a lot during the stomach exercises, and I really am trying to use my abs; I keep my chin tucked to my chest, yet my neck keeps on hurting. I would be so happy if anyone could answer this question! I, too, wonder if putting my hand behind my neck for support would reduce the effectiveness of the exercises? I seem to vaguely remember that in one of the videos she said it was ok to do, but i might just be making that up! :/
