It’s that time again – I’m weeding the exercise area of the health collection. Most of the VHS have been removed and I’ve added all sorts of DVDs designed to crunch, sculpt, shred, tone, relax and groove your body, in the comfort of your own living room. Just another service I provide…
I also wanted to provide you with a little humor today. Just as the science fiction covers are worthy of a laugh, so are many older exercise VHS covers. My, just look how far we’ve come with exercise garb…
Can you feel the burn? Jane Fonda is so easy to pick on. I cannot see how wearing a belt with a leotard while jumping around and aerobicizing would be comfortable, but it does define the waist.
Behind every buff woman wearing leopardskin is a man in an ill fitting unitard.
Now, here’s a style that I’m not sorry is gone. Butt floss was never good for any figure.
Well, looky here. Y’all remember Denise Austin, don’t you? She does those gawd awful Idaho potato commercials. This is her back when line dancing was all the rage. You could do-si-do while listening to her grating voice. Totally painful all the way around.
Behind every kickboxing woman is a creepy looking guy with a bad haircut. Nice wife beater, dude.
I am all for seniors and elderly people being able to exercise. It’s great to be active all of ones life. However, what is this woman doing on this cover? Way to go, Leslie.
Now HERE’S a blast from your infomercial past. You’ve got to BREATHE (heavy breathing) and MOVE (more heavy breathing)… Kinda makes you miss being up at 3 am and watching tv, doesn’t it?
Ohmygosh, ohmygosh, ohmygosh, ohmygosh, IT’S RICHARD!!!!! (Hug hug). Makes you just want to grab your striped shorts and dance!
I just threw this one in – just in case you were considering bleaching and perming your hair at any time in the future.
