This is the first The Firm workout I've done and I've been really doing it quite a bit There isn't a lot of jumping around but it will most definately make you work up a sweat!
The warm up is fairly basic but effective. The first cardio section is loosely dance based. You learn each move and build up to the entire routine gradually. It makes it really easy to follow. The instructor is perfect in her timing and guidance as well. She says exactly what you should be doing every step of the way-literally.
The first and second toning sections are very similar working your upper and lower body at the same time. You work every part of the arm using weights and you change moves quickly.
The second cardio routine is boxing themed with kicks and punches. Like the first cardio routine you learn the moves slowly and are flawlessly instructed.
The cool down is combined with some standing ab moves as well as push up.
From start to finish the work out is 40 minutes. The music is pretty standard but not what i'd call bad. As a whole it has a suburban housewives do aerobics feel but once you get past that it's really good. It's excellent for those times you don't have loads of time and are a little knackered but still want a thorough workout.
