Why Alyssa Milano's massively popular (thanks to pre-internet pedophilia) Teen Steam isn't in that playlist is anyone's guess.

Gotta let it out!

Mary Hart showed me an easy to follow routine that made me feel fit, firm... and fantastic.

I gotta wonder how much of these are like early muscle mags and nudist mags, are they kinda more grist for the wank bank than "workouts". The milton berl on not so much, but the Marky Mark one that starts with him writhing around in bed? Only one kind of workout anyone ever did to that.

Came for Angela Lansbury. Was not disappointed.

On reflection, I need a different verb in that first sentence.

The shorts on Sally Struthers' walking partner...all I can say.

My dad owned a copy of Marla Maples' workout tape...and I never saw him doing aerobics or anything.

Wouldn't that be ephebophilia? The pedos were all watching Who's the Boss? reruns.

Ah yes, the classic "if you get fit you must acquit!" workout.

Oh fuck I feel like I just time traveled to anywhere between 1995 and 1999 and landed a job as one of Leno's staff writers.

This moment is quite possibly one of the scariest goddamn things I've seen in a long time.

I went to a "Bring the Worst Gift You Can Find For Under $10 Yankee Swap" once. I brought Dan Quayle's autobiography, and my wife (then girlfriend) brought the Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee workout video. Thanks Buck-A-Book in Davis Square!

Hooray for Mary Hart. Forget her million dollar legs, I could listen to her voice and watch her hair forever. I remember around 1984, I was in an elevator at the Hollywood and Vine Building, the doors opened and Mary Hart walked in with with her husband, she was wearing a couture dress and headed for the nightclub. I have never seen firsthand a more beautiful woman in my life.

That Alyssa Milano video (which I had to skip around in, it was so painful) actually has porn music.
