What Exercises Can You Do With The Firm Wave? Over 100 Exercises
Does The Firm Wave Kit Work? Does It Really Give You A Good Workout?
The makers of this product claim that with the variety of exercises available, everyone should get a great workout regardless of their ability level and most people who have used this product agree that it gives you a high energy cardio workout.
Samantha Evans in her review says
The workout is fast paced and really gets you moving and your heart pumping. I definitely get an all over workout. Every single muscle group gets worked.
Ms. M. Parish agreed and wrote
All my muscles burn while working out and I feel so good when I am done…like the time I spent was worth the effort!
Not everyone who tried this product agrees though. Some users found that the fast pace made the DVD’s too difficult to follow and as a result, they didn’t get the workouts they were hoping for. Stacie wrote in her review:
‘I was hoping to feel some big difference in my body by doing this workout, but unfortunately did not. The claims about engaging your core on the wave may be true but I personally did not see any big difference‘.
Does The ‘Rocker’ Make You Exercise Differently?
With it’s unique design, the ‘rocker’ allows you to stand as if you were riding a wave on a surfboard, creating tauter abs while you workout to a cardio routine which involves rocking backwards and forwards. So, does this style of routine mean that you get a different workout and better results by doing the same exercises on this equipment?
Ms. M. Parish, who tried the product, stated that
‘My core is engaged the entire time and since my core muscles are sore I can feel what I am working and it is all over!’
Another reviewer agreed by writing on Amazon
the rocker board offers a different way to exercise for those looking for something different.The DVD’s [that accompany the product] offer several ways to use the rocker so your routine can become more challenging as you get better.’
If you’ve ever used a step in aerobics then you’ll know what to expect from many of the routines that the ‘Rocker’ has to offer, but you can get some variety by turning it over and balancing on the other side.
Are The DVD’s User Friendly?
As this product comes with interactive DVD’s designed to help you get the most from your new piece of equipment, it’s important that they are user friendly and easy to use. Some people who have used this product have commented on how fast the workouts are, and while some users view this as a positive point, others don’t.
Mr. A. Stackhouse, who enjoyed the workouts, wrote in an online Amazon review
‘Although the DVD’s seem intimidating at first (they go so fast), you get used to them and work your way up to their speed in no time’
but another reviewer, who felt that beginners who didn’t know how to do basic moves already might struggle, commented
‘It was nice that it came with CD’s but, oh my gosh, goes way to FAST! I pick up on things pretty easy, but not with this too fast and you can’t keep up’.
If you like a fast pace to your workouts, whether it’s to build intensity or to keep you from getting bored, the Firm Wave Kit DVD’s might be just what you’re looking for.
Will The Firm Wave Kit Help You Lose Weight?
The ultimate goal of any exercise tool is to help people become fitter, tone up and, if necessary, lose weight. So is the Firm Wave Kit a good choice for those of you with a few pounds to shed?
Max, a reviewer, says "definitely yes" and wrote
‘I followed the calendar that comes with the set and they weren’t lying when they said “see results in 10 workouts”. I lost 1/2 an inch off my waist and 1/2 an inch off my thighs. That doesn’t seem like much, but in a week and a half??’
Another reviewer, Brian Nallick, was so impressed with the results he saw that he wrote
‘I can say that after only four days of eating clean, doing the wave, and weights I’ve already lost two inches off my waist.’
