Callanetics with weighted Balls

At Walk the Talk studios we have added some new classes to out timetable, including Callanetics with weighted balls.

Why add the weight?

Adding either 1kg or 1.5kg to the Callanetics workout, takes the effects of the work to a different level of intensity. By positioning correctly, you can access the deepest layer of muscles. The class feels harder than a regular Callanetics class at the time, however the results are faster and stronger!


It is very easy to fall into a ‘routine’ or even a ‘rut’ when it comes to Callanetics technique, going on auto pilot and finding a comfortable zone that we do time and time again.  Although you could argue that getting repetitive exercise in is better than doing nothing, you might be doing yourself a disservice.  Why?  Your body is smart.  If you make it do something repetitively without concentrating on the subtle techniques in Callanetics, over time it will get used to it and become so good at it that you don’t have to work that hard anymore.

When it comes to exercise, the idea is to challenge your body…to make it stronger…to keep it on its toes. A great way to do this is by adding variation to avoid  ‘hitting a plateau’ with your Callanetics technique. And from a mental perspective, variation will keep you from getting bored.


Body Blitz results

We had one of our lovely clients do a body blitz last year in January and this year she did another body blitz also in January and the results were even better than the previous year. She directly related this to having the different variations of Callanetics classes added to the timetable.

The Callanetics with balls classes are on Wednesday’s at 5.30pm-6.30pm & 6.30pm-7.30pm at Walk the Talk Studios 1A Abercromby Place Edinburgh EH3 6JX with Keira Thorley.

Hope to see you there soon!
