My mom purchased The Firm and I tried the cardio one of them and I didn't like it all. I also agree that it is very hard on the knees. First of all the two step is wayyyy too high. Any fitness person will most likely tell you that it is too much of a strain for you to do steps on. I took step aerobics and read some books on it and they say the highest you should step is 12 inches. I'm not sure how high the two steps are together but it is much higher then 12 inches! Second of all, on the cardio one they switch from stepping for like 2 minutes, then have u do push-ups, then the next two minutes stepping, and then change to weights!!! Okay maybe that's good for some people, but I want to step for at least 15 minutes in a row and then change to something else. I didn't like it at all. My mom didn't like it either. She did it for about a week and that's it. I don't know where the tapes are now. It definitely wasn't worth all the hype in my opinion.
