I have 2 left feet and need repetition to get a sequence down. So, I like the older FIRM workouts better. But, I have a couple of the FIRM Express workouts that were repackaged and sold separately - as others have said they are nice when you are short on time. But as uncoordinated as I am, I like many of Coach Nicole's short workouts just as well and they feel more effective to me.
I agree that the workouts move quickly sometimes but I'm assuming the more I do them, the less I will miss steps. I also agree that the one 20-minute workout isn't challenging enough for me. I've been following an intermediate workout rotation (found it on another thread) which is 2 workouts each day and it's kicking my butt. Overall I think Firm express is a nice departure from the other traditional workouts but I wouldn't do it forever.

I also have it but I DON'T like it. I didn't find them challenging enough. I prefer the older workouts. Maybe it's me, but the newer workouts move very quickly (sometimes too quickly and I don't feel as if I am getting anything out of them

wondering if anyone uses the firm express and if you like it compared to the other firm workouts. I use the incline box workouts and the wave. I was interested in the firm express because they are shorter workouts. I would love some feedback! thanks!!
