Functionally Fit: Lower Body Firming

Year Released: 1996

This video kicks butt!!! It was meant to..and it does. I'm sitting here on the best sore glutes ever. I highly recommend this tape as a lower body tape. The moves that contain one legged squats are wonderful and I love the "bend over and pick it up" move..I knew that one was gonna hurt the next day. She also does something like "hover squats" similar to the Firm. It was mentioned that the tape contains dated clothing and the reviewer was bored by the series. I didn't feel that way about the lower body tape. I was too busy trying to keep good form and not lose my balance. I make post-it note notations on my tapes and the only thing I would add are 8 lb hand helds for the ballerina squats.

Instructor Comments:
Kathy is a little more subdued in this 1996 video. And as always, she continues to give form pointers throughout. I am slowly warming up to Kathy and will probably add more of her tapes at a later time.
