If you have ever stayed up late at night or watched early Saturday morning television you may have come across an infomercial for The Firm workouts. The thing that most people don't know is that The Firm workouts are not something that is new. In fact The Firm was established in 1979 and started producing workout videos in the mid 80's. One of their first workout video called The Firm: Volume 1 Total-body Aerobic Workout with Weights is still one of the best workout videos that you can do and, yes, it is from the 80's.
This Firm workout from the 80's is instructed by Sharon Harris who leads the workout through a series of aerobic exercises. If you have never done a Firm workout then you may not know that they are not known for being the easiest videos. This 80's workout will definitely have you sweating and you will be feeling it the next day.
The workout video is geared towards toning and slimming the entire body. It involves a weight training section as well as the aerobic workout which gives your body a complete workout in less time than you may think. It's easy to follow and the moves are not very complicated at all. Although the exercises are easy to follow don't assume that they are not effective. Even with this workout being from the 80's most of these exercises are still done in current workout videos because they are exercises that work.
The Firm: Volume One consists of both standing and floor workouts. It has an upper body section as well as a lower body section. If you don't like leg lifts or squats then this may not be the video for you. There is no denying that this workout will have your buns sore the next day.
If you are used to the newer Firm workouts than you may want to check this classic workout out as well. For being released in the 80's the music is not that bad although the workout clothing and hair styles may leave something to be desired. The clothing aside, The Firm: Volume One is still a great choice for a total body workout. It can be a great workout to add to your fitness routine to get a full body workout in about an hour, even if it was made in the 80's.
