Certified instructor description:
From 1998 — The Firm's first all-cardio video. You get 35 uninterrupted minutes of fat-burning aerobics (sometimes using dumbbells to increase cardio intensity). It features well structured transitions and lots of The Firm's unique "four limb" movements. You'll start with a solid step routine then blast right into challenging hi/lo cardio (including a few minutes of fast-paced dumbbell toning). This workout was reedited from earlier Firm videos so you get a variety of instructors and techniques. You also get the classic Firm's usual high quality production and upbeat instrumental music. Requires a step, two sets of 2 to 8 lb dumbbells; a workout dowel is optional. ©1998.
