Difference between callenetics & pilates
What is the difference between the two? Whic of the two is better for toning? I am currently gyming 4-5 times per week doing cardio and resistance. Lost 12kgs but need lots of firming. Which one should I go for?

Callanetics refers to an exercise system taught by Callan Pinckney. Pilates is also an exercise system but has received far more scientific exposure and criticism so it has probably evolved more. (I have some questions about the biomechanical soundness of Callanetics and would suggest you find a well trained Pilates Instructor, although I am sure there are thoughtful Callanetics teachers out there).



Why not try both and decide for yourself - let us know what happens. Good luck
