History of Fitness

This is a pretty cool, short, video showing how fitness has evolved over the last century. It’s just a little over a minute long and it starts with easy stretches that were used a hundred years ago and moves through the slightly more difficult stretches used in the 1920, through to the hula hoop fad in the 1950s and the twister fad in the 1960s, Jazzercise in the 1970s, Aerobics in the 1980s, Tae Bo in the 1990s, street dance in the 2000s right up to modern high-energy workouts, like Zumba, which uses a combination of several things like salsa, samba and mambo, often practiced in groups, with people of all ages participating. This video was produced by Benenden Health in the UK.
