Full Backcover Description
For maximum convenience and economy, begin a regular home exercise program.
Medical research proves that for all ages, even the elderly, the best way to reverse aging and lose fat is not aerobics — but a combination of weights and aerobics. By using variable weights, the DVD extends the age range to the ultimate with a cast including a US Marine and women over sixty!
Easy for beginners, or maximum tough, The Firm typically produces visible results within 10 workouts. Master instructor Jayne Poteet leads a vigorous, joint-friendly program with grace and authority. The combination of heavy weights and a tall step produces superior hip/thigh shaping.

A 1992 workout that emphasizes minimal footwork, heavy weights and controlled movements. It's easy to follow but tough — you'll burn some calories and definitely sculpt your body. The aero/tone section intermixes both floor and step aerobics. It usually blends the toning right into the cardio (e.g. holding dumbbells as you're doing the slower-than-usual aerobics). But some sequences feature "serious" lower body sculpting (e.g. stepping up and down on a 14-inch box with barbells on your shoulders). The program ends with a series of classic standing and floorwork exercises like rows, flies and curls. As in all the original Firms, you get jazz-style music, an elegant set and high quality production. Requires two sets of dumbbells (e.g. 3 & 10 lb); ankle weights are optional. They use a regular and a high step; a regular step will work. They also use barbells, but a body bar or heavy dumbbells will work. ©1992 (re-released on DVD in 2012, now with chapters).
