Work Out Videos….. We All Have Them


I bet most of us in our video collection at home have a few workout videos. The Yoga video, P90x, Zumba, Pilates, etc. Out of those workout videos how many times have you used them? I am guilty of that. I go and buy  the Dancing with the Stars work out DVD and maybe played it once or twice. At first you feel motivated and excited because it’s a dance workout video till you play it and you just think this is too many steps to remember.

I remember when my mom would by workout videos (maybe that’s where I got my video buying from) and her and I would actually go to the living room and do the workout. Guess which video that was? Richard Simons “Sweating to the Oldies.” Remember those videos? People always make fun of them but I think that’s where I started to love music and dancing. Working out and dancing with my mom to all of the oldie songs. The very first video is what I was hooked on the most. ‘Sweating to the Oldies 1″. Had songs like “Peggy Sue,” “Disco Inferno,” “It’s my Party,’ and ” Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” I remember just having fun and the dance moves were simple and that every shape and size can do. I wonder if my mom still has those?
