    Was reading an article on Callenetics.

    Lose Ten Inches In 10 Hours - MSN Life & Style UK

    In the article it says... "The effects of each class will usually last around three to four days before the muscles slacken again. All it takes is another session to top it up"

    Is it something worth doing? I can't quite tell! So is it basically that you have to keep doing it all the time and it has no permanent effect?

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with it?

    Hey, I ordered mine from ebay and I bought the book from amazon; the before and after pictures in the book are amazing. The dvd itself looks really dated but once you get pass that, it's okay. The exercises look simple, but some of them are hard. I haven't done the dvd yet, but plan to start either next week or the week after. You can notice difference within a few hours of completing the dvd x

    That's a great idea Claira. Be more fun knowing others are doing it. I have bought 10 years younger in 10 hours. Should be despatched on Monday so may have it Tuesday or Wednesday. I can't wait to try it!

    I have read up on the website. It doesn't seem to matter which dvd we have. There are specialist ones for targeting certain areas but apparantly it's all contained in the main dvds anyway.

    Hey,
    It's not strenuous, just requires flexibility but you'll become more flexible when you do it. I bought the book, too, which has images of the transformations.

    Well it was devised by someone with spinal curvatures (scoliosis and swayback), one hip higher than the other, and feet turned inward so severely that she wore leg braces to her waist for seven years of her childhood. She was in a wheelchair and had tried several exercise plans but it always made her worse so she experimented with different exercises and her early ballet training and found that small and precise movements were painless and made her body look and feel better. Her friends noticed her looking good and asked her to teach them. She then wrote a book and her first video was was launched.

    Basically men and women of all ages and fitness levels benefit from it and apparantly you will feel the difference in minutes and see really good results after just a few hours!
