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.
The Firm: Ultimate Fat Burning Workout

Intermediate: Active in sports, dance or any regular exercise (2 to 3 times per week).
Advanced: Very active in sports or consistently work out four or more times per week.
Aerobics Impact: Lower
Lower Impact: Both feet never leave the ground at the same time. This minimizes stress on your knees.

A short-but-intense workout that blends aerobics and dumbbell-toning into a non-stop fat-burner. It combines the intensity — and the results — of the legendary 1990's Firm videos with an updated, fresher feel (e.g. an uncluttered set, some kickboxing moves). It features lots of The Firm's “four limb movements” that burn fat as they simultaneously tone your upper and lower body (e.g. aerobic-paced lunges with alternating bicep curls). Alison Davis maintains the classic “Firm” experience with a confident attitude and direct, clear cuing (so even her fast-moving transitions are easy to follow because you always know what's coming). Requires 3 to 5 lb. dumbbells. ©2006.
