The Firm: Complete Aerobics & Weight Training (BSS2)Emily Welsh
Year Released: 2003
Categories: Circuit Training (cardio and weights)
This video incorporates kick-boxing, step, free weights and the new body bar. As with the other two videos in Body Sculpting System 2, intermediate and advanced exercisers will need to heavy up on most of the routines. Overall, I felt that I got a decent workout that was face paced and fun. I enjoyed the new movements on the tall step that work the inner and outer thights as I was getting a little tired of the usual "step-ups."
I would recommend this and the other two videos in this series over any of those in Body Sculpting System 1 - they may not be as challenging in terms of the weight work, but they're more innovative and fun.
Emily can be a little repetitive in her cueing, but overall she does a good job. Usually I don't like lots of "Whoo, that was GREAT!" from an instructor, but she doesn't bother me for some reason. Her form is good, she's enthusiastic and it's always nice to see a new face in Firm videos.
