Where have all the FIRM instructors gone?

So I am basically a FIRM and FIRM-related workouts cult member and it occurs to me that it would be helpful to have a thread to hopefully comprehensively collect together what former FIRM instructors have done since their FIRM videos. (Video fitness related, mind you, not stuff like "Well, Janet Gretsky got a divorce and..." )

The only former FIRM instructor whose later work I personally own is Tracie Long, who's of course put out several series under several different titles. I know Gaiam FIRMs are no longer being produced, but what is the streaming material Emily & Co. are doing? Who else has their own lines now, and what style of workout are they?

Pull 'em out for a rotation! I still do a FIRM video at least two to three times a month. They're still extraordinarily effective.

Here’s the BEMAX streaming site:

https://fitfusion.vhx.tv/bemax-fitness

And The Firm has now morphed into The Flex, Emily’s studio in South Carolina.

https://www.theflexbody.com/

Stacy Milner-Collins had a yoga studio in Columbia, SC, as did/does Pam Cauthen. Tamela Hastie has become an aerial silk specialist and performs in South Carolina. She also still teaches that, yoga and Pilates. Http://Strongholdgym.net

Nancy Tucker sold her BodyFit studio in Columbia several years ago.

Oh, cool! Thanks! Does anyone have FitFusion? That's a pretty low monthly cost, much lower than similar services.

Stephanie Huckabee has put out a 5 DVD set called Powerfit and a 10 DVD set called Powerfit Harmony. They are very "firm-like" and each workout is 20 minutes. If you like her, you may want to check it out.

I love the FIRM too and veer away to other instructors occasionally but always go back to the FIRM.

also powerfit plus.

Steph also did The Daniel Plan along with several other instructors, including Tony Lattimore from Beachbody. Steph also did a couple of Weight Watchers workouts too.

I googled Heidi Tanner, one of my favorite Firm instructors. She's director of Health Promotion at Hartwick College in NY.

Jenn Peluso goes by her married name - Gianni. She has led a pregnancy DVD and several pilates fusion workouts.

Pam Cauthen Meriwether has her own yoga business called Parayoga (wow she looks younger than before):
https://www.parayoga.com/teacher/pam...en-meriwether/

Lisa Kay did the Bean workouts with the inflatable Bean.

Taber Bruner is still a practicing attorney in NC or SC.

Kelsie Daniels is a trainer with Haddonfield fitness:

what happened to Nancy Tucker or Libby Heath?

Nancy Tucker opened a gym called BodyFit in Columbia. Several of us visited several times. She sold half of the building to Jamie Scott, another trainer. She eventually totally sold out to him and it’s now Jamie Scott Fitness - although he built a new gym. She talked about making a few more DVDs while she had the business, but those never got off the ground. She did film a class or two and streamed them.

Saw Lisa Kay and Dale Brabham while on those trips. Lisa taught in Columbia for a while and Dale taught at BodyFit. Not sure if she went with Jamie or not.

Susan Harris taught at Tracie Long’s studio for a while. Jenn Carmen might still teach there. Janet Brooks is an attorney and also does singing/dancing/acting in the area.

I have FitFusion and the annual subscription is even less. I only do the BeMax workouts, but a subscription gives you access to every workout on the site.
