Despite its age I find this to be one of my most used videos. It's length and intensity level make it perfect for a light workout day or as an add-on to another workout.
This is a cardio workout so the emphasis is on aerobics not weights. There are some segments with heavy weights, but you can always go with a ligher weight if you want to. There is also a good amount of lower body toning with squats on and off the box and some lunges here and there.
In general, I think that FIRM style cardio is underrated. It may not be fancy, but it's simple and effective and I find it fun. Some days I don't want to have to think about complicated choreography.
I'd reccomend this to anyone looking for a lighter cardio workout. It would also be good for people interested in trying the FIRM classics. It gives you a taste of what they're about at a lower intensity level. I decided which full volumes to buy based on who I liked in this video.
Gotta love those Firm Classics instructors!
