At Home Fitness

Covid-19 has forced us to exercise indoors. But home fitness has been shaping our lives for decades.

Most people remember their first encounter with home fitness. As a teen in the early ‘90s,  we wake up extra early on Saturdays to watch a TV programme called ‘Mousercise’, a Disney show with aerobics instructors in full Mickey and Minnie costumes teaching kids calisthenics. Most of the time we were  too lazy to participate, but was fascinated by the spectacle nonetheless.

For those born slightly earlier, home fitness might be defined by memories of Jane Fonda moving across their TV screen in legwarmers, while for others it might be taking their inaugural steps on that weird-looking contraption known as a treadmill.
