Bubbling Over: Bruce Springsteen "Dancing In The Dark" Music Video Outtakes

Okay, I'm not sure this really counts as a fitness video, but..... it's Bruce Springstring awkwardly singing "Dancer in the Dark" in what appears to be a workout outfit while doing some pretty awkward moves that could pass as fitness. So.... I think it counts. Try following along to this one!!

David Carradine - Kung Fu Workout

Deliciously cheesy 80s kung fu. I can't believe I was six years old when this was made. Halfway through the video when David Carradine begins the instruction, he's so serious it's creepy. The way he describes it with that blank stare into the video camera is so disturbing, and ridiculous at the same time- especially in that space war outfit!!!

The Greatest 80s Workout Ever!

This is a great homemade workout video. These people are committed. They're energetic and enthusiastic.

Oh Debbie Drake, you're so good at making it seem so easy and relaxing! I can just picture all the housewives in their own 50s living rooms getting motivated to get fit in between all those household chores and juggling children and husbands. I especially like the calf/duck movement, along with that classy collar attached to Debbie's leotard.

Jack Lalanne - Face Workout 5 of 30

The musical accompaniment to this is just fabulous- it hits the movements right on. I just discovered Jack Lalanne- he's great!! Quirky, straightforward and as he admits himself, quite talkative. I'm on a new kick of looking at fitness from the 50s and 60s. More to come!!

TV Carnage - Shape Up With Jazzercise

This woman is amazing. Best workout instructor ever. Really, I'm impressed. She knows how to have fun.

Erotic sexy yoga videos with Steamy Hot Yoga

I can't tell if this is a joke or not. But it's definitely not yoga.

Women Exercising at Battle Creek Sanitarium

I had my first swim at the historic Intramural Sports Building at the University of Michigan, and was so inspired by the grandiose feeling of the building and maze of bricked hallways that when I got home I searched for further information about the history of the building and its activities. I am still searching for more info, but I did discover these lovely photos through the University of Michigan Bentley Historical Library. Each picture was taken in approximately 1890/1900. The first is the Women's fitness class, and the second the Men's, both taken at the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan. Not necessarily related to the Intramural Sports Building, but certainly of interest. I also learned that the Intramural Sports Building, when first open, was only for men. Must learn more!!!

2 Decades of Richard Sandrak.avi

Another strange one- Richard Sandrak, the child bodybuilder. Is this supposed to be sexy? Looks like someone was deprived of his childhood.. Looks like someone's parents made a lot of money off of him and his body.

6 years old body-builder

This is disturbing.

Jazzercise - Move your Boogie Body 1982

This is the most amazing Jazzercise video ever. I don't know whether to think it's a total joke or they're really serious. The lead fitness woman is amazing, incredibly expressive in her jazzercise routine. Love it!!

Advanced Killer Home Chest Workout
