The FIRM: Fat Blaster
Allie Strickland, Nancy Tucker, Lisa Kay, 2013
This is one if my all time favorite FIRM's. This 45 minute mostly cardio workout has a super high FUN factor! Now digitally remastered, this is originally from the old Anna Benson Firm days so its got a ton of background exercisers, good music, and is in the mansion type set. The music is super-upbeat and really makes you want to workout-especially in Allies "chica kielbasa" segment.
The workout consists of mostly step and floor aerobics. I always work up a nice sweat and have fun doing this workout. There are a few 4-limb aerobic segments where you use light dumbbells and then there is a semi heavy lunge and weighted lower body sequence led by Nancy near the end. The workout closes with a tough ab workout led by Lisa and a cooldown stretch.
The moves are all simple and athletic so even despite this cueing issue, its still pretty easy to follow or catch back up with if you miss a step. I would rate this workout intermediate but like most Firms, its easy to modify it up or down to suit your needs. I received this dvd to review.
