Well, this certainly isn't on the calliper of Strength/Cardio, but it does seem better than the other early Firms. Although we still have the same cheesy music, there's isn't any of that silly hopping around and those lying leg lifts that everyone knows I hate. Still, there are some moves that just seem plain silly. After leg presses, they do several calf pumps on one leg - what is that? Does it do anything? And this is one of the stupidest warm-up I've ever seen.

The aerobics sections are simple and low-impact, mostly using the short box. I could've stood to work my upper body a little more - in fact, right before abs I hit the pause button and did several bicep curls.

This is not a tape I'll use often, but it'll be nice to have around for days I'm kinda pooped or when I just get tired of doing SB/SH over and over.

Instructor Comments:
Jayne Poteet is extremely atttractive and fairly pleaseant. She could perhaps stand to lose a bit of her accent, but that's my own personal preference. She gives zero pointers on form, but I suppose that's to be expected on an early Firm video.
