Let's Get Physical #4: 80s Fitness Hell
Is there anything more gawdy than the 1980s fitness look? I mean, there's a certain charm to the bad fashions of the 70s, but the 80s aerobics/fitness look is pure vomit inducing, retina scalding, brain melting awfulness. I've never been a big fan of the spandex look, for men or women. Combine that with fake tans, teased hair and pastel colors, and it's almost too much for my poor feeble mind to process.
So prepare to have your mind blown and bowels turned. I present to you a plethora of images and video featuring tons of leotards, big hair, leg warmers, and firm glutes. If it becomes too much to handle, take a break, go for a nice walk, then come back and finish. I recommend a cold shower afterwards.
To start with, we have what may very well be the greatest 1980s aerobics compilation in the galaxy. The perms, the spandex, the bad music.... it'll take your breath away. Viewing this montage of clip after clip of aerobics scenes from 80s movies, I started to feel like Alex in A Clockwork Orange, forced to watch horrific imagery in rapid succession. What sort of sick person compiled this?
