An hour of exercise and fitness. In the 1970s, Canadians went from couch potatoes to super jocks. Well, not quite. But at least during that decade they did start to get up and get fit. It was thanks to nagging TV ads, the example of an active prime minister and embarrassment compared to some very robust Swedes. But the nagging hasn't been entirely successful. More than thirty years later the average Canadian is still overweight and spends more time on the chesterfield than at the gym.
On this episode of Rewind, all about fitness. Remember the RCAF's 5BX plan? That fit 60 year old Swede? How about Participaction or Jane's Fonda's "feel the burn?" We'll get you moving.
