JessicaSmithTV: Stride & Step

Stride & Step is a YouTube cardio step workout from Jessica Smith. It is a great, short, uncomplicated cardio workout. And exactly what I need after a long day at work. Some thoughtless cardio. I really enjoyed it. And as an aside--this is what I have been missing! Not this workout specifically, but doubles. I … Continue reading JessicaSmithTV: Stride & Step

Grand Total Vol. 1: Going Strong

Grand Total Vol. 1 Going Strong is an intermediate level workout from Tracie Long. She has created two more Grand Total workouts (Volumes 2 & 3) and I have already pre-ordered them. I am not sure what "Grand Total" means to Tracie when she titles these workouts, but this workout is definitely a boredom buster. … Continue reading Grand Total Vol. 1: Going Strong

Focus: Power Up

Power Up is another 30 minute workout from Tracie Long in her Focus series and I did not enjoy it at all. I actually found it a very odd workout and I don't really understand the point of her Focus series now. From what I can see online (and what I have checked out from … Continue reading Focus: Power Up

30 Minutes to Fitness: Step Boxing 2

Step Boxing 2 is the newest offering from Kelly Coffey-Meyer in her 30 Minutes to Fitness series. I have been looking forward to doing Kelly's newest workouts for months but life circumstances kept me from trying them. But I have been feeling great for weeks now, so it was time to finally give them a … Continue reading 30 Minutes to Fitness: Step Boxing 2

The Firm: TransFIRM Your Body

TransFIRM Your Body is one of the pink Firms and is led by Allie Del Rio. It uses the Fanny Lifter--but it is not one of the early Body Sculpting System workouts. In fact, it's not even one of the earlier pink Firms. This is one that the Firm created later. And they don't call … Continue reading The Firm: TransFIRM Your Body

The Firm: Calorie Killer

Calorie Killer is part of The Firm's Body Sculpting System 2 and is led by trainer Nancy Tucker. This workout is one of the Firm's pure cardio workouts. It alternates circuits of floor or step cardio with more metabolic light weight training using the Fanny Lifter at 14 inches and the Sculpting Stick. The Fanny Lifter … Continue reading The Firm: Calorie Killer

The Firm: Lower Body Sculpt 1

Lower Body Sculpt 1 is part of The Firm's Body Sculpting System 1 and is led by trainer Lisa Kay. This is a great little lower body cardio + strength workout. I didn't do this workout alone. BSS1 has two 30 minute lower body workouts. This one and Lower Body Sculpt 2 which has no … Continue reading The Firm: Lower Body Sculpt 1

The Firm: Cardio Sculpt

Cardio Sculpt is a cardio + strength workout led by trainer Allie Del Rio. It is part of The Firm's first Body Sculpting System. It is another effective and fun circuit workout that alternates cardio circuits with strength circuits. Allie uses a lot of tempo changes to help burn your muscles out. And like the majority … Continue reading The Firm: Cardio Sculpt

The Firm: Cardio Sculpt Blaster

Cardio Sculpt Blaster is a short cardio workout led by Lisa Kay. This workout is from The Firm's Body Sculpting System 1. Since I started my Firm journey with Body Sculpting Basics followed by Body Sculpting System 2, I ended up slowly buying BSS1 workouts individually. I did not like this one as much as … Continue reading The Firm: Cardio Sculpt Blaster

The Firm: Jiggle Free Buns

Jiggle Free Buns is part of The Firm's TransFirmer system. It is led by Pam Cauthen Mariwether. Not counting Express Total Body Shaping, I always found Pam's workouts some of the tougher Firm workouts and this one is no exception. I recall this one and Super-Charged Sculpting from my Firm days and they both always managed … Continue reading The Firm: Jiggle Free Buns
