Benefits & Member Specials
This program was designed to tighten and sculpt the body by developing and strengthening the smaller muscles of the body.
Why It’s Right for You
Callanetics is a good workout for people who are into working with toning rather than muscle-building or cardio endurance training. This program was specifically designed for individuals who want to see an improvement in their body figure, not necessarily their strength or cardiovascular health.
Why It’s Not for You
Callanetics was designed to help develop the skeletal muscle system to improve the body’s figure and strengthen the body’s muscle system. While it can be helpful and help your body look a particular way, it might not align to your goals.
With this system, it has been proven to see results in as little as 17 hours working with the Callenetics studio workouts.
There is limited nutritional information on the website; most of the information available focuses on basic dieting requirements, such as eliminating certain foods and avoiding foods that can affect the body.
The monthly membership payment is $14.95 for access into the videos, which can add up pretty quickly
As little as 20 minutes a day:
The Callanetics programs include workouts from 20 minutes long to 40 minutes long.
The membership benefits such as videos and emailed newsletters, along with the website, which can be accessed from any device, including mobile devices.
One of the biggest things about this online platform is how it is backed by the creators of the Callanetics Studio methods.
No Need for a Gym:
The exercises in the program focus on deep muscle movement, mind-body connection, and muscle strengthening. There are no machines needed.
The Callanetics Studio has proven results in as little as 17 hours of instruction.
A Certain Amount of Discipline is Required:
Callanetics Studio membership requires discipline on the part of the member, just like every gym. The members will get their daily subscription email, but there is no tracker to make sure the member is keeping up with their programs.
Injuries or Physical Decline can Hamper Progress:
If you have medical conditions, it will be hard to start on a level where you will be able to lose weight quickly. Building up muscle and stamina when you have not worked out in a long time, or lead a sedentary lifestyle, it will be harder to get the programs started.
The program is focused on women’s bodies, and keeping them fit. A man would likely not feel comfortable doing these exercises.
The monthly membership payment is $14.95 for access into the videos, which can add up pretty quickly, especially if you have issues with accountability, packed schedules, or physical limitations.
Support is Limited:
If you decide to pay for the membership, you will be able to ask questions to the creators of the program directly, but the community interaction and the trainer-student relationship is weak.
