I am glad to see Gaiam re-releasing this video. I like Gaiam and this elevates them to a higher level in my opinion.
I started exercising 15 years ago with this video. I lost over 30 pounds and gained tremendous stamina, muscle and strength. (And not too much muscle.) I have been looking for another video like this for years.

I liked the pace of this video - it teaches you how to lift weighs and do aerobics at a pace beginners can handle. It isn't just dance routines.

It it a terrific video - relevant as much today as when it was released. A must for every exerciser - especially someone who is new to it.

I've been a firm believer since almost 20 years. I had them all in video format. My favorites were the firm #4, #5,#6, tHE tortoise, and The Hare and Five Days abs. Those workouts are the most, they shape your body in no time. I was looking forward to find them in DVD format and was really happy when found them. I am 51, three kids age 21,25 and 28, and in my best shape ever. The Firm shape your body without making you look bulky and the muscle confusing method give you opportunity to work hard without getting exhausted. My English is not the best , but I hope this review help other to make a decision. You wont regret.

This is my favorite FIRM workout. I don't like fast-paced workouts so this one fits the bill perfectly and it's a much safer workout than other FIRM classic tapes. And it's never boring. Lots of people think that fast, exhausting type of exercises produce better results. In my opinion, slow workouts let you pay more attention to the forms and that awareness engages more muscles in any given movement. For example when doing the short- tall box workout, I consciously squat deeper and squeeze harder. When doing upright rows, I try to use lats as well as shoulders. The pace of this workout lets me be more aware of what I do. Also Jayne Poteet is an excellent instructor with her impeccable cueing. This workout is excellent for the rear - you will feel the burn! Although Susan Harris remains as my top favorite FIRM instructor, I love this workout more than hers (hers is for more advanced exercisers IMHO, except for FIRM vol. 4). If FIRM vol. 1 is too hard for you, you can start with this one and work up to vol. 1 or others.

I really love this workout. It is not my favorite out of the top 6 FIRM Classics, but this one is different from the other 5.
Here is the breakdown of all Classics (1-6):

Vol 1 (w/Susan Harris)-more fast paced, more "lower body" emphasis (a killer floor leg rutine), and a huge "results" workout!

Vol 2 (Low Impact Aerobics)-more slower paced than vol 1, more "4-limbed cardio" (which is my personal fav type of workouts), and a more "upper body" workout than Vol 1.

Vol 3 (Interval Training)- more "up and down" type of workout (as with Vol 1-you kind of do a mix of cardio and weight work, Vol 2 is a upper body cardio then to floor work, and Vol 3 is alternating both). This one I feel is a more "total body workout"..without emphasis on just either upper or lower. This one is my #1 FAVORITE of the Classics from Vol 1-6.) ;)

Vol 4 (Time Crunch)- is a GOOD circuit type workout that gets everything packed in a 30-40 min timeframe. LOVE this one as my 2nd most FAV of the Classics from 1-6. Like Vol 3 is a solid total body workout (but no floor work except abs).

Vol 5 (Abs, Hips & Thighs) - a good shorter total body workout but a bit longer than Vol 4, but is definatly more emphasis on Lower Body and Ab work-also has the LONGEST ab work in all the classics. I really like this one as well. The short cardio step workout when she uses fast delt lifts and upright rows while stepping sort of in a "off beat" way, is the only time I really felt a good arm workout-so I LOVE that part! :)

And now Vol 6......a very slower paced, but still challanging workout. At first (years ago) when I started using this videos (back in 95), I first thought this one was a bit more boring and the cardio was sort of a "why bother" type of feel. BUT...

Although, I slowly acquired all the first like eight Firm video workouts, this workout and Volume 1 are my two favorites. The Boomers workout is excellent and the music is great. As I stated in my review of Volume 1, please be patient with yourself. When I first started purchasing The Firm workout videos (and they were $50 for VHS) in the late 80's and 90's, I had NONE of the equipment, and slowly...very slowly I built up my little stash of stuff, but I was still able to do the workouts, so don't let not having all the things they use in the video stop you from doing it. The stools they used back then were dangerous, disastrous and they tipped. I use my set now as little foot stools and one as a little table (so much for those wooden stools for exercise, but have one to elevate my feet as I'm typing right now). And, I used a Rubbermade step stool that was far more sturdy at the time. Now I have the set of plastic ones which are VERY balanced, but it took me years to acquire them. If you have any kind of step device, and you're sure you won't slip, then use it. And if you feel that you're not yet ready for the step part (or never will be), just do the exercises without it. There are plenty of parts of the video you can do. There are many days where I literally walk through certain parts of this routine...when I just don't have the balance or strength. And that's all right.

Do only what you can and after the initial soreness wears off, you should start slowly to look and feel much better and gain strength. I've tried many other types of workouts and although I do love Yoga workouts, the other ones either aren't enough or are WAY too jolting and dangerous for my 60+ year old body.
