80s and 90s Workout Videos That Still Make You Sweat

Before there were INSANITY and Tracy Anderson DVD collections to work out to in the comfort of your own home, there were workout videos of another era to get your blood pumping. If you love Zumba then you’ll love some of the original workout videos from the 80s and 90s. The spandex outfits have passed back into vogue so you can get some fashion inspiration while you workout and the moves still help you lose weight and slim down, years after they’ve peaked.
