The ’80s: the hair, the music, the legwarmers. Being in shape and looking your best were big themes of the decade and plenty of workout videos have resurfaced on YouTube to show for it. To this day, people still look to Jane Fonda and others for tips. Take a trip down memory lane with these fun (and slightly embarrassing) workouts!
Aerobics and Jane Fonda
Jane took the world by a storm with her video empire. She recalls being embarrassed by the idea and thought it would be bad as an actress. Over 17 million copies of the original tape sold and launched her successful fitness career!
Suzanne Somers and the Thighmaster
“Some people were born with great legs. The rest of us have to work at it.” Mhmmm. Believe it or not, this fitness device is still around and available for purchase!
This workout might work your abs harder from laughing than just the actual exercise. And the jazz music in the background? Golden, so golden.
Dance Workout with Richard Simmons
The ultimate dance workout with the iconic weight loss master himself. You should definitely try these moves the next time you are out in public. Definitely.
Still a popular method in some classes, step aerobics burns tons of calories! Imagine this ’80s beachfront workout the next time you are at the gym (hopefullym in a different outfit).
Last but not least, the best of the ’80s workout craze. We’re totally kidding, but this is bound to be the craziest thing you’ll see all day (until you watch an episode of Bachelor in Paradise, of course).
