The Firm: Maximum Cardio Burn (BSS2)Allie Del Rio
Year Released: 2003

This tape is fun and unlike BSS1 from the Firm, the sound quality is fine and the set is light and welcoming. As with the other videos in this set, intermediate to advanced exercisers will need to have heavier dumbbells on hand. The "twigs" from the body bar offer no resistance and I can't see how they could possibly help anyone "sculpt" their muscles. The body bar was fine for leg work and I enjoyed using it during the aerobic segments, but heavier weights are needed if you want a challenge from this or any of the other BSS2 tapes.
Allie keeps improving with every video. She has just the right level of enthusiasm without being annoying and her cueing is right on target.
