Yikes. Would you believe that terrifying Lycra outfits would have been the very least of your worries when working out during the 80’s?
Thankfully, the days of aerobics, dancey-aerobics and aerobics with a step are loooong gone (along with the Lycra).
Today YouTube presents a fascinating landscape of fitness fanatics who are only too eager and ready to share their workouts with the world. From the mainstream - like yoga and weight-lifting, onto calorie-busting dance moves.
Ready? Then step into your sneakers, roll out your yoga matt and get ready for the burrnnnnnn.
Genre: Aerobics, dance & cardio (but not as you know it)
