Early life[ edit ] Pinckney was born on September 26, in Savannah, Georgia. She was born with spinal curvatures , one hip higher than the other and severely turned-in feet. As a result, Pinckney was forced to wear leg braces for seven years. In an effort to correct her alignment, she spent the next decade studying classical ballet. She was frequently suspended from school; her only interest was international travel.

Her adventurous spirit and her need to help others as she traveled the globe lead her to the path of becoming one of the foremost and recognized fitness entrepreneurs of all time! Callan was raised as a debutant in Savannah, Georgia and trained in classical ballet along with other forms of dance, movement and exercise.
After an eleven-year backpacking odyssey around the world, the rigors of travel, combined with a congenital back defect, led to physical collapse. Callan knew she had to take matters into her own hands to restore her own body to health in order to survive.
On her return to the U. Expanding on her success with her own back issues, Callan went on to teach her revolutionary exercise program from her New York apartment, first to those with similar back issues and then included others who simply loved the body transformation from doing Callanetics exercises.
Callan continued to teach, which she discovered was her niche and her love. Over the years, she had many famous and distinguished clients worldwide, all of whom testify that Callanetics is a unique, safe exercise system for transforming your body and your life! Pulses are used with specific exercises in every position-standing, sitting, lying to target the muscles you most want to re-define while strengthening your spine and other joints at the same time. Callanetics has the accolades of thousands of devotees to produce the fastest results in the shortest time possible.
The Callanetics Pulse is only part of this success story. The entire Callanetics program is a balance of strengthening and stretching your muscles and re-aligning your posture in a gentle, rhythmic and dynamic way.
What makes Callanetics unique? For Callanetics…. It is this pulsing action, combined with exact positioning and proper body alignment, which makes Callanetics so effective. These controlled, miniscule, tiny movements are the predominant, most noticeable difference when comparing Callanetics to other conventional exercise programs. The key is keeping the Pulse small without bouncing or jerking.
