The Firm Express Review

As a fitness professional, it is not only my job, but my passion to help others get fit and healthy. This is the same mission of The FIRM. I have to tell you, when I first heard about The FIRM Express Weight Loss Workout, I was a little hesitant, because for some reason I had a preconceived idea that they were "old school" and a bit outdated. As I have used their Express program, I have found the exact opposite. In fact, I would say that The FIRM methodology of combining cardio and sculpting exercises in intervals is almost identical to my own methodology, which I think is the most effective way to get fit and stay fit.
So, what is The FIRM Express? It is a 30 day fitness program designed to help you lose weight and get in shape with four cycles that progress in intensity as you move through them. Each cycle has three unique workouts, so there is a lot of variety, which I love.
The FIRM Express also offers you these fun mini bursts, which are quick blast intervals combined with cardio and sculpting. This is the best way to burn calories even after your workout is over! I use the same techniques with my clients, and it is awesome! It actually helps you to burn up to 9X more fat than traditional cardio workouts.
This program includes 12 all-new DVDs, a Fitness Guide with a 30-day mix and match meal plan and workout calendar, FREE 30 day VIP web club membership, 7-Day supply of Lifemax vitamins, a bonus DVD to help kickstart metabolism, and more.

I appreciated their Fitness Guide booklet. It has great recipes and calorie plans to keep you on track. There are also other great tips and tricks for getting healthy and fit as fast as possible.

Since these workouts are only 20 minutes, they are jam-packed with energy and great calorie burning fun! The instructors are motivational and explain things well. It may take you a time or two to get the hang of all the moves, but I prefer that to a slow explanation you have to then listen to every other time you do the workout. My only small criticism is that I was a little turned off by the trainer's over-tanned bodies, and all the participants in the DVDs were ultra skinny, very muscular women. I like women of all shapes and sizes to be represented, since most of the people who will be following these videos will not look like the women on the DVDs. I would like the trainers to be more relatable, since they are role models.

I absolutely love these workouts and recommend them to all of you as a great way to exercise at home if you have limited time and like variety. Since they are only 20 minutes long, three times a week, there are no excuses as to why you can't fit them in. They don't require any equipment besides a few weights, so that excuse is out the window too. You will enjoy these workouts, and I don't doubt that you will see great results!
