The Firm Workout and Jane Fonda

Does anybody else do The Firm workout? If you haven't, you should try it. As much as I love Jillian Michaels, I have to modify a lot of her exercises. Too many of them put a lot of stress on my back which isn't good for me. I bought The Firm box a few years ago and I dust it off every couple months and go on a step aerobics kick. It's so old school but I love it. I was a huge Jane Fonda fan in my early workout years. I used my mom's old videos and VHS player so old school is just fine with me. Please tell me I'm not the only one. Back to The Firm, my legs are really strong thanks to the box featured above. As an example, my office bathroom has been out of toilet seats covers for several days (UGH) and since I'm too lazy to do the whole toilet paper strip thing, what do we do ladies? we squat! TMI? sorry, but I can squat without any leg shaking thanks to many many step ups on this 14-inch box. Special thanks to Stephanie Huckabee (one of the lead trainers) she's my favorite.
Do you have a favorite old school workout routine?
Should we bring back the leotard, belt and tights outfit? I've seen leg warmers at Targert recently which I thought were super cute.


  1. The ideal core workout routines will be all those performed using a suspension trainer. They’re reasonably new about the sector and are getting used by athletes, celebrities, and any individual just wanting to develop muscle, get rid of fat, and get flat abs.

  2. Oh my, I haven't done the firm since i was in high school! I agree with you about Jillian Michaels though, her 30 day shred puts a lot of stress of a sore running-injured ankle. I would be tempted to try this again, for old school I love the Tae-Bo VHS tapes. Side note: I didn't realize any office had bathrooms as gross as ours at work!

  3. Jillian kicks my behind! Oh my!

    I'm actually commenting on your breakfast post. For some reason it wouldn't let me. I LOVE BREAKFAST. I do not have a fav because I LOVE IT ALL!! I could eat breakfast every meal of the day.

    Grits are great btw.....
