Something most people don’t know about me: I grew up in an aerobics household. No, it wasn’t my mom who was into it, although, I occasionally joined her as she danced along to the “Jazzercise” video tape. It was my dad who was the aerobics star. He spent most of the ’80s as the only man at the gym who regularly attended aerobics classes. This is particularly comical considering my dad is a 6’3″ ex-college basketball player. But he loved aerobics and he used to take me to classes with him. He was a celebrity at the gym; all the teachers knew him by name. He even considered becoming a certified aerobics instructor at one point. Hence, my deep appreciation for aerobics. Now to my point: I just stumbled upon this video from the 1988 Crystal Light National Aerobics Championship hosted by Alan Thicke and it made me very, very happy . As a side note, I should mention that my dad never wore unitards or made those ridiculous faces. But these aerobics competitors really went there. The theatrics of it all! Amazing. [Buzzfeed]
