i was in Savers today after making a large donation of items - massive decluttering going on at our house!

i saw these:

Shaun T Rockin Body set, shrink-wrapped with literature too! for $5.99
Janis Saffell Beverly Hills Pilates - i considered getting it! for $1.99
Leslie Sansone - Ultimate Walk $1.99 (this is a compilates of her WATP)

I don't see a thread either, bzar so thanks for starting us off!
I picked up a 4 dvd set Total body Slimdown...has 2 workouts from Stephanie Vitorino and 2 from Shelly McDonald. Haven't previewed but seemed like a good deal.
I also found Natalie Jill's 7 day jumpstart book. I am hoping some recipe ideas pan out.

A month or so ago, I acquired Yin Yang Workout (a.k.a. Tai Chi Balanced Workout) with Janis Saffell and Scott Cole at a thrift store, together with Jessica Smith's 10 Minute Solution Knockout Body. I've finally ventured into the realm of kickboxing after years of avoiding it because of my knees (can get tweaked). But KCM's kickboxing segments in some of her DVDs with strength segments changed my mindset so I'm now dabbling elsewhere too. I tried the Janis and Scott DVD and found it absolutely fabulous as it was a semi-recovery workout (~45 mins of tai chi + kickboxing + unweighted standing leg work that's balance intensive and creative) that still got me a bit sweaty and ~3K steps. Super fun workout and they have great camaraderie on screen! The tai chi segments felt a bit like a nice substitute for flowing yoga, a bit of stretching and a lot of mobility work... and then getting some cardio and sweat on with the kickboxing segments. I am already a Jessica fan so looking forward to trying my find and I've heard this is a pretty tough (as is much of her earlier work on DVD)!

Today at Goodwill I found The Firm, Cardio Weight System. It has four dvd's, hi-def sculpt, cardio overdrive, hard core fusion and cardio party. All Goodwill dvds are $1.29, but with my over 55 discount, I got it for 90 cents! The 4 dvds in the set look barely used.

The description says hi-def sculpt is body shaping exercises at a slower pace, and cardio overdrive is low impact cardio and body shaping exercises. Hard core fusion is aerobic and weight training, and cardio party sounds like a dance workout. TBH, I don't know if I'll do the last two, especially if there is high impact, but the weight training and low impact cardio is definitely what I"m looking for.

Sherry, from what I remember, cardio party has a low impact modifier. Has several segments with different teachers ..my fav was Allie. Hi def sculpt is the best workout on there.

Good job!

My Goodwill hasn't lowered their dvd prices...still $2.99.

Great find! I've done Cardio Party the most from this set. Pure cardio with no gadgets or weights. There's a modifier so definitely give it a try. It's fun, too! Cardio Overdrive has a high impact section if I remember correctly with lots of high knees. But there's a modifier with this, too, and Allison is a great instructor. I don't have Hard Core Fusion, so I can't comment on that workout, and Hi-Def Sculpt is weights only.

I love these workouts and Hi-Def Sculpt is one of my favorites. Nice find!

Thanks for the reviews everyone! Iím definitely looking forward to using it.

Most of the Firms I find are the half hour strength and cardio combo, and I was looking for a weights only, so happy to find this one. I did get Sculpt and Super Sculpt from Thriftbooks for $5 each.

Linda, our Goodwills lowered them to $1.29 six months ago. I guess they were not selling.
