The Firm: Volume 6: Forever Firm

Year Released: 1992

Categories: Circuit Training (cardio and weights)

Others have thoroughly reviewed and described this workout, so I am only adding my thoughts. I bought this one in April 2014 during Collage Video's sale. I have known about it for years--several veteran VFers had encouraged me to get it back in the day because I hated push-ups (still don't like them very much, but will do them) and this one didn't have any. I had also just turned 57 and have noticed that I need to do more stretching before and after workouts nowadays. This one seemed to fill the bill. It's a total body workout and like another reviewer, I have the two-piece fanny lifter from another FIRM workout series, so I can use the 8-inch for the "short box and then stack the 6" on top for the "tall box" work. I haven't done any of the other "classic" FIRMS yet so I don't know how this compares to them. I do like this one. it's likely to be one that I can modify up or down as I move into my 60s in a few years.

Instructor Comments:
Since I am also from the South, Jayne's accent, manner, and even makeup don't bother me that much. I like her and I wish she had been in more of their workouts. I would buy them. It was also fun to see future "lead" instructors Pam Cauthen, Libby Heath, and Tracie Long in the cast. Tracie also helped put the routines together, according to the credits.
