The Firm: Strength (aka: Strong Body)

Pam Meriwether
Year Released: 1995

Categories: Circuit Training (cardio and weights)

Once again, Roberta has provided a thorough description of this tape above, so I will stick to my own impressions. Like Strong Heart, this video is a vast improvement over earlier FIRM volumes, which I didn't care for. I love the way that the instructor moves--the aerobic routines are simple, but graceful. I didn't really have much problem with Pam's cuing after the first time through. The ab work in this video is tough. The upper AND lower body work are truly superb. If you like Tortoise, you'll love this one--it's a similar workout but with better aerobics sections. The Variety series has definitely changed my mind about the FIRM!
