"I'm not always a The Firm fan, but lately they've brought out some great workouts and this is one of them. I really enjoy doing it and already found it to be beneficial after only four times doing it.
It's a 45 minute routine and it's all standing and floor toning. It's led by Annie Lee who I found to be very friendly, encouraging and cues well. Sometimes you'll work one muscle alone, and other times, you are working multiple body parts in one go. You begin with one move and then incorporate add on moves to include more body parts. This is what's going to help you maximise the fat burning and lose weight.
As I said, I've already done this four times and feel the benefit from it. If The Firm are going to be bringing more workouts like this out, then I'm going to keep buying them. This is a great workout that you can combine with your cardio workouts."
Good sculpting workout

"This is a good, almost-hour long sculpting workout with great moves. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because even though Annie is a great cast member in all FIRM workouts, she is not as confident as lead(at least it doesn't seem so). But this is a great FIRM workout and I use it often on sculpting days."
Good workout, horrible leader

I have done this workout several times now. It starts out very slow, the first 15 min have a lot of down time, pretty long breaks between sets for my taste. After those 15 min however, it does pick up. There are some great "mid section" moves which I really like. Lots of lunges and dips of course. It is an overall good total body toning workout. That being said Annie Lee is terrible! She seems very sweet and well meaning but just a bad cuer! She doesn't tell you whats coming up (eg which foot leads off, when to hold the move, when to go to 3 repetitions instead of 1, etc) She says "last one" AFTER the last one. Her words are generally confusing and unclear. I could go on and on but the gist is that you feel like she is just someone in the class, definitely not the leader. It feels like she expects you to already know the routine. I have done it several times so far so I am getting very familiar with the routine so her cuing mistakes are mainly an annoyance for me at this point, but it is extremely annoying. I will continue to do this because of the great moves, at least until I find a workout that is just as good with a better instructor."
Great workout. Love it. Great lead and choreography. Get it

"This is the only workout that I fell for/was extremely drawn to while previewing it after I received it this evening. I very much like Annie's direct but cheerful approach (reminiscent of the Firm instructors of old--Tracie Long, Susan Harris)and the moves--simple, effective, and unique. It was nice not to hear "now one more and we'll add on", to do a workout without impact, and to experience the slight burn of deliberate moves choreographed inventively. I worked up a sweat, but this workout--the perfect introduction to The Firm body shaping exercises (as the back cover copy states)--did not leave me drenched, which I liked very much. I have a variety of workouts and don't feel the need to pump heavy weights, do 16 reps of everything, and be drenched in sweat after every workout. It was nice to feel worked out and revived after doing this workout. The 25-minute express workout will be perfect to do in the mornings before work and/or when you want a short, compact workout. Absolutely wonderful workout. Excellent job Firm and Annie! Excellent job!"
