You all have inspired me. I have 20+ year old VHS versions of 10 in 10 and Super Callanetics but I don't have a VCR anymore so I ordered Callanetics Evolution yesterday and had it overnighted (thank you Amazon prime). It arrives today. I'm a little scared but excited.

Thank you guys for all the hugs. I'll get back to exercise as soon as I'm no longer in pain -- hopefully just another week or so!

Bronwyn - so sorry for your injury! I think you're right to now try anything until you're healed. I'm recovering (I hope) from a back spasm, and am absolutely not going to try any exercise until it has left me 100%.

I got my Callanetics 10 in 10 DVD last Saturday, and am watching it right now, just to get familiar with it. Hopefully I can start it soon. I'm concerned about straining that back muscle doing these positions, but I also think that the strengthening this workout can provide could help my tight back muscles in the long run.

Anyone have any insight into how this has helped your back?

I had low back pain and sciatica pain for many years. These stretches have made my back very limber and pain free

I just did Evolution for the first time, well, half of it. Holy guacamole! I'm OUT OF SHAPE. This is going to be tougher than I thought. I'm having a really difficult time engaging the pelvic floor while relaxing other areas. It's like I have to tense everything or nothing. Hopefully this gets better with a little practice.

As I understand from the 10/10 DVD, Callan had severe back problems and is very focused on protecting the back during the exercises. I suffered a herniated disc last December (the worst pain I have ever experienced) and was very wary about getting back into any kind of workout except for my physical therapy. I'm happy to report that I feel awesome since returning to 10/10. If I ever feel any hint of a strain, I modify the exercise. My PT explained how strengthening our core is so important for back support, and the 10/10 stomach exercises seem great for that.

Thanks, Curvesgal and Alcestis. I'm so glad to hear that Callanetics will be good for my back. It's definitely my weak spot, and I want to strengthen it and my core.

I'll be starting 10 in 10 sometime this week!

Wow I am loving this. I've got a video tucked away somewhere but no player Doh! Yeah reminds me of the 80,s and all those new videos that flooded the market. I've still got some old leotards and tights. Won't be getting those out tho. Re the feeling sick. No one drinks enough water whilst exercising and this could be the problem. If you are dehydrated those poor old muscles are already in trauma. So try to drink water and see if that helps Also leave 2 hours between eating and exercise might be another problem. Xx

I'm really starting to see a difference in a) my stretching ability and b) my shape! It's so exciting. I can now rest my head on my legs (and I keep calling DH into the room: "Hey, come look at what I can do!") and I'm getting that definition in my waist and hips.

It's a miracle!!

I haven't really checked on the definition, but I do know that I'm stretchier than I have been in a long time - I'm more closely acquainted with my knees than I've ever been before, lol!

I'm off to do my one Super session for the week.

I really am loving it! Today, for the 1st time, I was able to do ALL of the stomach sets without crashing down a single time! 100 with knees bent, 100 with left leg up, 100 with right leg up, and 100 with both legs up! I can REALLY feel my abs right now, lemme tell ya, lol!! AND I was able to touch my forehead to my legs in the stretches. I love love love 10 in 10!

Oh My WOW! I have a LINE on my thigh! You know - that long vertical line that shows up when you've got a muscle there? The nice one? Yep. I saw that in the mirror this AM and about flipped.

I have been so impressed with the enthusiasm here that I got three callanetics books from the library (they didn't have any dvds ). I am still obese and very unexercised but will try to figure out and practice the core moves from these and the UTube before purchasing a dvd.

Beyond really needing to tighten things up as I lose weight, I also need some serious work on posture, strength and flexibility and something I can do at home in my tiny apartment. This seems like it will fill the bill.

Well, I guess it starts with cracking the books. Wish me luck.

I've still been afraid to try my new DVD since my recent back spasm. I did order a "Callanetics for your Back" book from Amazon, and am reading it. I was thinking of starting at the beginning of the DVD, and doing the warmup and the first exercise or two for the first time. Then maybe working my way up a position or two each time. After the pain of the spasm, I really don't want that full-body muscle ache that often comes from starting a new workout!

LoCarbGal, I do a full Callan workout 3 times a week and sometimes on the other days if I'm feeling stiff or just want to stretch I'll do the first part of 10 in 10 (from the beginning to the neck stretches) and then do all the floor stretches toward the end where you do 50 each - legs spread, then each leg and then both legs together. I think it times out to about 20 minutes total and it's a very nice little full body stretch.

I think your plan of starting out with the stretches is a great way to get started with Callan because it will get your body all nice and stretched out before you move up to adding in the other moves.

Callanetics videos

I've just found this thread and I suspect it's going to get as long as the main monthly Callanetics challenges too! When we start talking about Callanetics, everyone is intrigued and inspired and wants in.

May I also recommend Beginning Callanetics, which is a wonderfully gentle introduction to the exercises. It shows 'real' people doing the exercises, and make mistakes which Callan corrects. Wonderful for training purposes! Just Google it and you can find the DVD on Amazon I think.

I love the idea of JUDDD so will have to look into it further. I've always thought that my main issue with dieting is the fact that it never ends. This is so much more flexible when you're entertaining or eating out with others.

Happy pulsing everyone!

10 in 10 is 57 min long

Super is 1 hour and 8 min of actual workout time. The video also includes a section of Callan teaching all of the moves.

Evolution is the 'modern' version of Callanetics and I've never watched it so I don't know how long it is.


Vicki, one of the instructors of the Evolution series is Sandra and she occasionally posts on the Callan thread here on LCF

I don't know if the Gold Coast of Australia is large or small (if it might be close to you or not) but she has a studio in Australia called Gold Coast Callanetics.

She trained with Callan - the creator of the original series - so she's familiar with both the original and modern moves.

I would have loved to have had an instructor close to me when I was starting as I believe form is huge for this workout.

(Happy belated Birthday too. )

Thanks, Kissa. That made me smile.

I always worry I sound like a drug addict in this thread. I just love it so much I don't want anyone to give up on it without trying the different modifications.

I couldn't sleep this morning so I popped out of bed and did 10 in 10 to get it done for the day. Now I am wondering if I can do that a couple of mornings a week. I am sooo not a morning person but work and life often get in the way when I try and exercise in the evenings. Not to mention I am tired after a long day and usually hungry for dinner! When do you gals fit in your callanetics?

TJ,
I like to do 10/10 mainly in the evening because I hate going to work with jelly legs! I also find it helps me relax and unwind (well, maybe except for the pelvic scoops...).

Mornings I do my cardio and I save Callanetics for late afternoon or evenings. I do either the 10/10 or Evolution a daily basis then treat myself to a bubble bath.
