Aerobic Weight Training (AWT)
The FIRM’s signature class and the most effective, AWT delivers a combination total-body workout that blasts fat and reshapes your body like no other workout can—in fact, it burns up to three times more fat than cardio alone. Upper body and lower body moves are sequenced in an alternating pattern to improve cardiovascular fitness and burn fat while you shape lean muscles. Intensity can be varied with weight and range of motion modifications, as suggested by the class Instructor, to make it a great class for all levels of fitness. Make this class part of your exercise program and you will get visible results in 10 workouts or less. That’s our guarantee!
FIRM Cardio (FC)
We offer FIRM Cardio as a supplement to The FIRM’s primary workout, AWT. Because your muscles need time to rest and rejuvenate between weight workouts, you should alternate AWT or BS with FIRM Cardio, a sustained calorie-burning workout. A variety of energizing segments alternating between low-impact, high-impact, step, and light weight routines add interest, allow you to work at multiple intensity levels for maximum calorie burn during and after the workout, and make the time fly by. FIRM Cardio concludes with core exercises and a stretch.
Body Shaping (BS)
Body Shaping is available for multiple purposes. First, it allows you a focused total body sculpting workout without any cardio intervals if you want to pay special attention to adding lean, calorie-burning muscle to your physique. Second, the class is divided between a standing and a floor workout to offer a variety of effective muscle shaping exercises with different fitness tools. Finally, it includes an extended stretch at the end of the class to ensure you are also improving your flexibility as you sculpt muscle and burn fat.
