Aerobics

Aerobics is the name of a physical fitness programme created by Dr Kenneth Cooper, a former USAF flight surgeon. He took the term from the adjective “aerobic,” which means living on free oxygen and comes from the Greek words for “air” and “life”.

Cooper popularized the physical program in his books Aerobics (1968) and The Aerobics Way (1977)

Deep Breathing gives you health benefits similar to aerobics.

Jane Fonda was a skilled ballerina until she broke her foot in 1978 and had to give it up. To stay in shape, the actress took up aerobics. This lead to the 17 million-selling Jane Fonda's Workout video series.

Angela Lansbury released her own workout video in 1988 called Angela Lansbury’s Positive Moves.
