Not bad... but not good...

"I like Karen Voight's more recent videos, so I decided to give this one a shot. I've been doing the Firm for quite a while and I was looking for something a little more advanced. I didn't really find that here. You need to buy ankle and thigh weights, but the squats and such are done without weight. The repetition without weights did make it challenging -- more so than I expected.
Unfortunately, they've crammed too many people into the workout space, and they are all dressed in brilliant 80's colors. The music is also pretty 80's (weird sax--those who were around will recognize it when they hear it). Karen's instruction is quite good and this tape is effective. Despite her talent, however, this isn't one of her best."
Brilliant again :-)

"This workout is fantastic. I really love Karen Voight and she cues so well here, that it's no wonder she's one of the best instructors out there. She really guides you through this as if she's in the room with you and you always know what's coming up next and she doesn't prattle on and on.
In this workout, there is standing toning and you use a step to do certain exercises too. You work your calves while on the edge of a step so this is a little different to other straight floor workouts and keeps it interesting. The one thing I really like about this too, is that as you get stronger and better at it, there are modifications you can make to keep challenging yourself. It isn't too tricky - a lot of the moves are classics - but it is very effective I can tell you. It's an older look because the workout was made in the early 90's, but the moves are classic for a reason - they work and give you results. I love this routine and hope you will too. It's worth every penny."
