Oh, take me back to the 80s!
The BBC Archives shares this golden goodie (16 million views since Thursday) from an episode of the Breakfast show in 1984 in the UK.
“It’s day 4 of the BBC Archive quarantine fitness regime! Time to don some tight clothing that doesn’t quite fit and limber up with the one and only Tony Britts!”
Tony’s got a quick little routine consisting of “side to sides,” “ball changes,” and “hands and hips,” although when he puts it all together that “hands and hips” move gets some complicated rhythm going.
I’ve got to say, back in the day – and I was there – being ‘fit’ for most folks meant being lean and toned.
While today’s InstaHunks might have more size than the venerable Mr. Britts, he’s looking pretty jacked for the early 80s.
Over on YouTube, my favorite comment about the clip reads, “He’s so cute, and what a body! How could he get that ripped just by moving sideways?!” #srsly

It’s day 1 of the BBC Archive quarantine fitness regime! Just don a pair of your tightest shorts and let Tony Britts lead the way. pic.twitter.com/V3KHmzaQsk

I hadn’t noticed the rug. Or the floor 👀

Blimey. Those shorts are really tiny and quite frankly mesmerising.

And remember, as Mr. Britts says, “Work hard, play hard, rest hard ok. Lots of fun. Have a good week ahead.”
