I recently started The Firm Body Sculpting routine and I found it to be one of the easier routines to learn. I like the instructor's way of mixing the cardio with the Fanny Lifter strength training workout.
The Fanny Lifter is the key to The Firm's success. Without the Fanny Lifter, The Firm is a typical cardio+toning workout that can be purchased at a much cheaper price. The 14" (6" + 8") step is higher than any stepper that I've ever used doing step aerobics. I felt the "good hurt" in my hips and inner/outer thighs after the very first workout. After several workouts I began to feel the difference in jeans, though I still have a ways to go to reduce by derriere. I'm also gaining definition in my arms. As long as I continue to see results with The Firm, I don't plan on renewing my gym membership.
The Firm isn't perfect. Each video shows participants at various levels. In each video not enough camera time is given to the beginner. If you purchase the DVD it lacks scene selection. The only way to return to a segment of workout is to rewind it just like a VCR. The plus over a VCR - three workouts (cardio, upper body, abs) appear on one DVD. Finally, I wouldn't purchase the DVD or tape with buying (or already owning) the Fanny Lifter.

This three-pack of workouts includes:
- Cardio Sculpt with Allie DelRio (60 minutes)
- Body Sculpt with Jennifer Carman (50 minutes)
- Ab Sculpt with Lisa Kay (30 minutes)
These workouts require dumbbells and The Firm's Fanny Lifter. For dumbbells, they suggest 3-lb., 5-lb, and 8-lb. weights to start. The Fanny Lifter is a total of 14" high, so if you have knee problems you may want to work on strengthening your legs before you attempt these workouts. The Fanny Lifter has two parts: one 6" high, and one 8" high. Throughout the workouts you use the Fanny Lifter in different combinations, a regular step will not substitute for it.
Each of these DVDs is a challenging workout. If you are new to exercising at home, you may want to start off with something easier, such as Kathy Smith's Personal Trainer Sculpting Workout or Lift Weights to Lose Weight. If you already have a foundation of strength training, these workouts are going to push you further and harder, helping you build muscle and endurance.
The Cardio Sculpt workout runs about 60 minutes. There are no special features on the DVD, only the workout itself. The workout uses 10 - 15 minute segments of strength training, mixed with 2 - 3 minute bursts of low-impact cardio exercises. The strength training includes every area of your body: lots of squats for the lower body, push-ups for the chest as part of the warm-up, 4 minutes of non-stop sit-ups for the abs, and the tricep French press. There is a 4-minute warm-up and a closing stretch. Throughout the workout, Allie guides you through stretching out the muscle groups that you just worked. This is an excellent combination of tried-and-true muscle conditioning and sound exercise principles.
These three workouts will help you to tone and condition your body.

I was introduced to The Firm in 1989 and have been using their tapes off and on during the years and probably own most of them.
I must admit that my first reaction to these new tapes was not overwhelming. They didn't make me want to jump into my workout gear and get started immediately upon opening. HOWEVER, once I took the time to learn the routines and focus on the exercises, they are working well for me.
My primary purpose in using these videos is muscle tone development and sculpting. I use the Ab Sculpt video with Lisa Kay as a part of every workout. It is quick, simple, and it gets the job done. I primarily use the Body Sculpting video with Jennifer Carmen. I do not use the Cardio Sculpt video. I don't like fancy aerobic footwork and I prefer to get my aerobic workout from running. However, I must note that I got a heart monitor for Christmas and I was pleasantly surprised to see even the Body Sculpt video gives a deceptively good aerobic workout!
The Body Sculpting video with Jennifer Carmen is very effective. The tape is broken into two major sections: Lower Body and Upper Body. The lower body portion of the tape is challenging and I enjoy doing it. It contains of the lunges, dips and leg presses we have grown to love. The upper body portion of the tape is not as challenging as others, but it is complete in terms of muscle group coverage.
I personally prefer formats where the upper body and lower body work are mixed throughout the video and not broken up into two separate sections.
My favorite Firm workout tape of all time is: The Firm Cross Trainers: Super Sculpting. However, I keep these new Ab Sculpt and Body Scupt videos in my Firm video rotation mix and use them on a weekly basis.

First let me say that I have had two babies in the last two years (one in 2001 and one in 2002). My body needed some serious work. I used Firm Body and Firm Heart to get back in shape after Baby #1. It took only about a month. After Baby #2, my body was so exhausted I couldn't do anybody's tape for the first 3 months. After 4 months I started using this system and everything is coming back together. My stomach is flat, my waist is tight and most importantly for me, my hips, thighs, and behind are returning to normal. These tapes were too difficlut for me when I was extremely out of shape (6 weeks - 3 months after the second baby). But once I regained my strength using Quick Fix Total Body I needed a better aerobics and toning workout and I knew that is what I would get with The Firm. You might have to practice the tapes 2 or 3 times before getting the hang of some of the moves, but once you get the hang of it it is actually fun and inspiring. The tapes keep you moving, sometimes your muscles get exhausted, but you know they are working because you get up in the morning and you feel that wonderful ache that says "progress is being made." In two months I lost 30lbs and went from a flabby 12 to a fabulous 8. I swear by the Firm.
