The best work out video EVER!

Today my coworkers and I got into a conversation about working out, and how Dave and I joined a new gym last night (one with less people, a women’s only weight room, classes and a smoothie bar!!) I was also talking about how I was upset with myself because I haven’t done the Shred since last Thursday (due to traveling and a bad cold, and subsequently have now failed the 30 Days of Flippin’ Fitness), and I need to get back on the ball. Hopefully this will happen tonight/tomorrow before having my wisdom teeth ripped out of my mouth.

Anyway, while we were discussing all this, I remembered the BEST WORKOUT VIDEO OF ALL TIME!

I give you, circa 1992….

“Dance Workout with Barbie”

Ohhhh yess. I so had this video, and being it was 1992 that makes me 9 years old. (Dear god.) I remember wanting it so bad (as I probably wanted everything Barbie) and when my mom got it for me, I definitely made her do it with me. I don’t remember what my workout outfit consisted of, but most likely it included some spandex shiny shorts, a leotard of some kind, and scrunchy socks with L.A. Gears.

I know I only did the video once or twice, and got bored of it very easily. But I kind of want to do it now!! The dance moves are HILARIOUS, and Jennifer Love Hewitt is in it!! She went by “Love” back then, and has very little sense of rhythm. Bwah hah ha. I love that some random chick Kim is leading the workout, and CGI Barbie pops on the screen every so often, doing a poor impression of the moves currently going on. Her outfit is awesome though, and I totally had that exact Barbie doll. Exercise Barbie? Workout Barbie? Totally Rad Barbie? I forget what she was called.

Me just talking about the video doesn’t do it justice though, you definitely need to watch it for yourselves…

Fast forward through the first 45 seconds of legal drivel, and embrace the glory that is CGI Barbie and the amazing spandex outfits these girls wear. Oh and “Love” is the girl on the left of the leader. Best. Video. Ever.

If the video doesn’t work for you, here is the link. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!!


  1. I LOVE YOU FOR POSTING THIS! OMG! I was laughing about mousercise the other day but I TOTALLY had this too! HAHAHAHHAHA

  2. HAHA! That is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ If only Jillian could be as perky as Kim!

  3. Lisa (from Seriously.) says

    Lol! That one I haven’t seen, but I do remember mousercise. I loved me some mousercise.

  4. OMG, I TOTALLY did this DVD too when I was a kid! This is SO hilarious, I must find this video now!!

  5. theycallmecurlysue says

    Apparently I was not part of the IN crowd because I have never heard of the Barbie workout video or the mousercise that other commentors were talking about. I’m so not cool.

  6. You are too funny lady!!!


  7. LOL I LOVED the barbie work out, this may be simpler than shreds but Jillian may need to learn a thing or two about not being too sadistic ๐Ÿ˜›

  8. Shoshanah says

    I definitely remember doing this! I don’t think I had it, but my best friend did. I so remember doing this in her parents’ bedroom. And I remember doing mousercise when I woke up early too!

  9. God I can’t wait for Barbie to come out with a 30 Day Shred. That thing is going to be bad ass

  10. ahh this reminds me of waking up before school (my own choice) to do the disney channel work out show!! I think it’s the outfits that are bringin’ it all back for me ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Samantha Rose says

    HAHAHAHA. I actually found this the other day on Youtube. You gave me the vid as a hand me down and I used it to warm up before dance classes!! Best video ever.

  12. Classy in Philadelphia says

    OMG. I used to love this! Mousercize is definitely another good one.
