"I just love this video!! I have all of the Firm videos, the fanny lifter, the stick..etc. I love this one because it is perfect for when you don't have a lot of time but you want to get in a good workout that isn't boring. I have been easing back into exercising after having a baby and after doing this routine just once, BOY! I could really feel it in my thighs, my buns, and my arms. The routine is easy to follow and it is safe. ALot of attention given to your butt and thighs with all of the squats. The music is ok, but hardly noticeable because the routine is so much fun!! I rarely say that about exercising but I have found the Firm series to be truly fun and I look forward to doing them. Get this one for sure! For those days when you only have 40 minutes to work out (the routine is 30 min. I am giving time to dress, undress..etc.) And, it is REALLY TRUE what they claim in their ads, You WILL See a noticeable difference in 10 workouts --- after 10 workouts, my family and friends were commenting about my appearance -- especially my butt and legs -- and I didn't think I could see any difference!! Anyway, get this one, you won't be disappointed!!"

"I rented this video at the library over a year ago and absolutely hated it, I thought I would give it another try, glad I did. Lisa Kay leads your through a 30 minute cardio workout along with 4 fellow Firm Master Instructors including Libby who shows beginner modifications. You will use the Firm Fanny Lifter for this one, but a normal step will do if you don't have it. Light weights are also used in some sections.
You will start out with a simple warmup then you go into your first cardio segment which is low impact. You will see marches, heel digs, step squats, calf pumps, lunges, knee lifts, all with simple arm movements. Some of the moves are performed with hops or jumps but you can leave those out if you prefer.
The next segment is step aerobics with light dumbells, I used 3 pounders for this. You will do heel digs and heel rocks with bicep curls, straddles with modified upright rows, lunges with tricep kickbacks, lunges off the back of the step with rhomboid pinches, all on the step. Squats with hammer curls on the floor finish out this set.
More step follows, this time without weights. This segment includes basic steps, A-steps, hamstring curls, knee lifts, L-steps, over the tops, and some jacks off the step.
For the next segment you will fully assemble the Fanny Lifter and do some power moves with light weights. You will do overhead presses while tapping your foot on top of the platform, then you will move into squats with variations, step squats, alternating side to side, pulsing, etc. Surprisingly I was quite winded by the end of this segment.
The next segment is more step aerobics, this routine includes straddles, side leg lifts, over the tops into squats, lunges off the back, and press steps into tap overs. I liked this segment.
The final part is more 4 limb aerobics with light weights using the step for part of the routine, though most of it is done on the floor. You will see grapevines with rhomboid pinches, step touches with bicep curls, knee lifts first on the floor, then the option to move to the step if you want.
Time to start cooling down, in this segment you will see simple moves such as marches, step touches, hamstring curls, tri-stars, sambas and side lunges.
Overall, I really liked this workout, it might take a few tries to get it all down but once you do it is a nice routine with variety. Lisa Kay is a pleasant instructor who seems to be having fun herself. It is better suited for beginner/intermediate levels, advanced won't get much of a workout with this one. I think it's a keeper."
Excellent Quick Workout

"If you are pressed for time, this is the workout for you! Lisa is an amazing instructor, her cues are perfectly timed, and the choreography is ideal for a non-dancer such as me. I use this workout when I really need to burn some calories but don't have an hour to do so. The Firm has really updated this program and I am very impressed with my results!!"
