Workout Videos

I keep hearing about video's called The Firm. Has anyone tried these and if so, what do you think of them. I work out 6 days a week for 45-60 min on the treadmill. I would like to do some firming up now. Do you think those videos will work? I have also seen videos from SELF magazine that I was thinking of trying. Any advice would be great!

i have done the firm workout. it will help you firm up. the only problem i have with the tapes is the are fast paced right from the beginning with little instruction. after doing the exercises for about a week you pretty much catch on. they would be a little difficult for a person who has problem with self motivation. just my opinion :)

I have gotten amazing results with the viedos I have. If you do the videos 3x a week, you will see results!

I use Complete Aerobics and Weight Training (60 min), Tough Tape 2 (45 min), and Super Body Sculpt (40 min, can be done in three separate parts for arms, legs and abs). I agree with the above poster - there isn't a ton of instruction, but after a few times through, I had them practically memorized.

Some of the system has gotten very involved with "tools" like the Fanny Lifter, Sculpting Stick, etc. I didn't want to buy that stuff, so I use a 12" step stool which was $5 at Target and a broom handle.

Someone was using Turbo Jam (I think?) But can someone give me an idea what kind of videos these are?

Turbo jam is a mix of kickboxing, body sculpting, mixed in with a bit of dance to make it fun and put to good music. I love it :) Here's the link below. I have a 10% coupon code if interested

the firm totally works. I used to use till I got a plateau, so currently following another program.
I recommend Tough Tape 2, Standing Legs and Super Sculpting. You will get toned and sweat a lot of pounds off

The Firm is great! It really helps to tone and for those saying it's too fast, use the modified version without weight first. yes, you may miss a few steps or reps at first but by the 3rd time you'll have it down! Good luck with whatever you choose!
