The Firm: Strength (aka: Strong Body)

Pam Meriwether
Year Released: 1995

Categories: Circuit Training (cardio and weights)

I purchased this video as a result of seeing all the positive comments from other reviews, and can see why this tape made it into the Hall of Fame. I have to say this is one of my all-time favorite tapes. It really works your muscles, and makes you feel like your time was well-spent. Already I can feel my arms and legs becoming stronger and I no longer have aches and pains in my lower back. And for the first time ever, my triceps don't jiggle, thanks to killer tricep work. I don't think it will become boring, because paired with Firm Cardio (which I like a little less than Firm Strength), there is always ways to improve, to push yourself with heavier weights, or deeper leg presses, french presses, etc. At the end of a long, hard day at work, I actually look forward to doing this tape, because I know it will make me feel so much better. =)

Instructor Comments:
I liked Pam Cauthen very much. She seems very genuine, very warm and friendly. Many times when I am doing a set and am feeling tired, her words of encouragement help me to get to the end. Had a few cueing mistakes, but hardly noticeable once you do the tape a few times.
