    Back then, 20’s-60’s, they had crazy hype dancing so that helped them out a lot. Dancing like swing dance, the jive and so on. Also the 80’s and 90’s had those hype dancing too. That’s why you barely saw anyone fat like now in days. (I’m one, so. Lol)

  5. xanthippe on July 2, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    the fact that they didn’t even include jane fonda’s legendary workouts



  6. s s on July 2, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    Makes you wonder how silly today’s exercises/diets will look in 40 years



  7. Kayla on July 2, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Know what I used to be a swimmer (quit last year 💀) but like it’s kinda true because competition swim keeps you fit for sure 💀💀



  8. Ragnarkisten on July 2, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Clothes of today are sooo boring



  9. Eliza Adler on July 2, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    2:15 imagine how many disorders that brewed….



  10. S S on July 2, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    How come several people who came up with stuff were mentioned by name but not the one who developed Zumba? Was it a money/legal issue to mention his name?



  11. Katherine Tutschek on July 2, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Jane Fonda and Kathy Smith were big too in their respective eras

  14. Payton Lewis on July 2, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Betty Cornell’s Teenage Popularity Guide? The title alone is so fifties that its ridiculous.



  15. Denix Vames on July 2, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    The only exercise I do is walking and that’s when I need to get up.



  16. Brionna Hynes on July 2, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    2020 – Chloe Ting



  17. Faisa Parveen Ali on July 2, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    No hate, but people who are saying that we are doing weightlifting in the 2020’s and why weightlifting wasn’t included, remember? USA and UK aren’t the only countries in the world. Just because something is big in the USA or UK doesn’t mean that the whole world does that.



  18. Salomé Heredia on July 2, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Since 60, some kind of Yoga and games appeared, which is actually exercise now



  19. Ishani Kumar 1# on July 2, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Jo



  20. Nessa P on July 2, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Wow, to be honest, I really felt like advertising has a BUG role in how we exercise. 😂



  21. Liliana Guimarães on July 2, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Can’t believe Jane Fonda was not once mentioned in this video…



  22. mahlia lone on July 2, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    You forgot Jane Fonda. She was The Queen of exercise in the 80s. Women of all ages followed her video routines. I was a JF devotee as a teenager in the late 80s as well. She came after Richard Simmons in the timeline but was much much cooler. She looked hot in her spandex leotards.

    2020: *chloe ting* *alexis ren* *water fasting*



  24. Yoonkook For Lifeu on July 2, 2021 at 9:25 pm

  25. Luzvie Estrada on July 2, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    My mom still does TaeBo using those old billy Blanks DVDs until today. I join her sometimes, lol. Totally a great workout video.



  26. moonbcw on July 2, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    In 2020s it’s Corona time so we usually do Chloe Ting’s 2 week shred



  27. ᴀᴡᴋʙᴏɪ on July 2, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    2020: What’s exercise?



  28. potato Girl on July 2, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    The diversity y’all use with your models. Amazing



  29. Katherine Tutschek on July 2, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    You didn’t mention how weightlifting became much more common amongst women in the 90s and after



  30. Bidita Ghosh on July 2, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    But in India Exercise was their since Mahabharat



  31. Ellen Diane on July 2, 2021 at 9:29 pm

  34. Felix Madison on July 2, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Black tights and black leotard on a woman with curves….nothing sexier than that!!!



  35. DolphinLeki on July 2, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    What’s the music at 2010s?



  36. SamAsm on July 2, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    They skipped over Jane Fonda’s workout video empire. As a kid, I didn’t know she was an actress. She was a fitness video queen. Workout videos were a big deal in the 80s.



  37. Lorraine Stanton on July 2, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    The styles are actually more authentic in this one than in some of the other "100 years of" videos you have.



  38. Torsa Chatterjee on July 2, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    2020s – Chloe ting challenges became more popular



  39. Diana Prince on July 2, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    You forgot actress Jane Fonda.



  40. Lillian Smith on July 2, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    * me remembering Michelle Obamas children health campaign and the there was no more butter for your bread in the hot lunch line* 😭😭😭😭😭🥺🥺☹️

  45. Umba Loji on July 2, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Where is jack lalanne???? Women in the 50s did his exercises



  46. reol_woo on July 2, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    trust me, even if i were given 100 years of lifespan, i still wouldn’t do any of it :p



  47. Cat in Headphones on July 2, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Ok I feel bad for these actors… like they probably like what they do but how many people would love to pretended that they are swimming in a 1940’s swimsuit while on the ground.



  48. Bianca Mo on July 2, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    There are glorious accidents like beer, bread and antibiotics….and then we got Zumba 😨



  49. lauren henderson • on July 2, 2021 at 9:46 pm
