OSusanna if I could get my fairy godmother to grant me one wish, it would be to have a bod like Annie's...

As I read these posts, I keep rescuing titles from the purgatory pile, lol. At this rate, I will keep them all.

Annie is one of my favorite FIRM instructors! She is super nice in person! I've had the pleasure of picking her brain before about rotations! She knows her stuff!

I have pretty much all the Firms except the Wave. Somehow I missed that one.

I don't think I'd get rid of any of them!

My favorites are BSS1-4 since those are the ones I reach for the most. But I love the classics and the rest of the earlier ones. Many people bash the pinks but there are several gems in there too.

Anything led by Allie, Alison or Lisa Kay will always cheer me up and get me moving.

Slower with option for heavier weight sounds good so I’ll have to give Hi-Def Sculpt another try.

This is why I like it too. The pace is really good for me, but it has a lot of lunges which is why I have considered parting with it, but there is an Express version that I have not tried which I need to do.

This and Total Body Toner were my favorite of the Pinks, Get Chisel'd was pretty good too but I didn't keep that one. The rest of the Pinks didn't do anything for me.

I love all the workouts that Gaiam released that only use weights. My favorites are Ultimate Fat Burning Workout, Bootcamp Maximum Calorie Burn, Total Body Time Crunch, Calorie Explosion and Dangerous Curves Ahead (uses a resistance loop that is inside the DVD case). Four of these workouts have Alison as an instructor, so obviously she is a favorite.

I go back and forth too, but I have really come to appreciate how good all the main workouts from BSS1, BSS2, and the Jiggle Freeís are. Would also never get rid of Pamís Supercharged Sculpting.

I also still love those short cardio workouts from the BSS3 era - Advanced Cardio Blast, Express Cardio, and Fat Blasting Cardio. Good music in those and they are fun.

Iím with you on the classics.

I do remember liking that cardio one that has Clarissa and other instructors in it, but thatís about it.

Ditto on the classics here.

Iíve traded/sold them a few times and then re-acquired. Not sure why.

I had Volume 1 for many years and overall enjoyed it but as time went on I just never did it anymore so I got rid of it. I thought for sure I would come to regret it but no. I also had Volume 2 and 5 and didn't mind them but parted with as well. Volume 6 had potential but too many hover squats for me. Volume 3 and 4 I never had but saw enough of those from the parts workouts I had and I wasn't interested.

The Classics are good workouts but not for me.
