Will there be a time when we look back on Zumba, Barre Bootcamp or ‘Piloxing’ (that’s Pilates + boxing) and wonder what we were thinking? Probably! Fitness fads come and go almost as fast as fashion, driven by gyms, personal trainers, marketing gurus and the general cultural zeitgeist. But who cares? They’re fun while they last, and most burn at least a few calories (I said most). Here are a few of my favorite fitness fads, in all funny, freaky and fabulous historical glory.
