Workout Videos

  1. last year

    The 1980s was filled with many workout videos, often led by celebrities. Seemed like everyone jumped on the band wagon to host a video. Some were good, others confusing why they were ever made. Here's my first choice to start this thread. Time to put on your short shorts, headbands, leg warmers, and Reebok high tops!

    Richard Simmons seems to have unlimited energy. As a youngster watching TV in the '80s, Sweatin' to the Oldies commercial always made the video seem like a blast.

  2. Time to exercise your face! Saw part of this video at the Found Footage Festival. I kept thinking, was this for real? I guess so...

    I like the sketches of Miss Piggy doing some of the exercises on the album cover.

    Performing "Snackcercise" from her album.

    I was surprised to hear that Richard Simmons hasn't been seen much in 3 years. I hope he is doing ok. He always had so much energy.

    Yeah, I wonder if he is still doing workout classes. I remember seeing something about him doing them when I was looking up his album a couple years ago from the 80's.
