Keep Fit follow up

Chris Meloche was reminded of a Canadian keep fit TV show which produced a local tie in album on Ronco:


20 Minute Workout LP


“20 Minute Workout was a Canadian produced exercise programme which ran for two series in 1983 – 1984. A number of perky young ladies led by exercise instructors Bess Motta (pictured on LP sleeve) and Arlaine Wright went about their business to the beat of electronic pop music. The women did their routines while standing on a rotating platform with cameras placed around and above them (for that old June Taylor Dancers look). The background of the studio was also stark white. This is what an exercise show would look like if it was a part of the film THX-1138!”

Chris hasn’t got the album, but did find a picture of it to send me. Looks more like a shot from a lap-dancing video to me, but perhaps that was the intention!
