The Firm Methodology: For more than 25 years The FIRM has combined weight training with cardio in a unique, effective way to help you develop the body you’ve always wanted. The Firm method maximizes your ability to sculpt and shape your entire body, burning up to three times more fat than cardio alone.
DVD has premixed alternate workouts and Spanish language option.

Certified instructor description:
You’ll burn calories and tone your body while integrating elements of balance, flexibility and yoga. Slightly less intense than most Firms, it’s designed to provide a “recovery” day between your more challenging workouts. But it’s not “easy” — these are real exercises. The cardio is all low-impact and non-intimidating — an energizing blend of aerobic classics and Latin dance favorites. The toning mixes yoga and traditional body sculpting. Taught add-on style, it’s a series of four to six routines linked into “combos” (e.g. a squat with a French press, a shoulder roll and a calf lift). Well cued by Emily Welsh. Has a 25-minute, “express” premixed workout.
