Need a perfect workout to help you burn off some extra calories from that Fourth of July barbecue? Why not watch one instead?
Here's a video timeline of memorable (and sometimes embarrassing) fitness trends from over the years. How many can you name in 30 seconds? Um.. CrossFit, Aqua Cycling, Zumba, Physique 57, Tae Bo II, Barry's Bootcamp, Kettlebells, P90X? Jazzercise and step aerobics, eat your heart out.
The most unsettling part of this collection is that it barely scratches the tight and toned surface of whats out there.
