Body Heat (UK) was a popular Aerobics TV and Video series, which Martica Heaner starred in a daily UK fitness show on LIVE TV.
It aired June 1998-Nov 1999; reruns currently airing on UK digital TV.
As you can see from the photo above, there are clear benefits in exercising regularly.
The 1980’s and 1990’s were a time where exercise fashion new no limits.
There were plenty of men and women exercising in lycra and spandex – actually not exercising in lycra (when everyone else was doing so) was frowned upon.
How times have changed, over the past 20 or so years!
Dr. Martica Heaner has written several books and regularly consults on health, fitness and nutrition.
Below are two workout videos, showcasing the aerobic exercises, featuring the attire from the 1980’s and 1990’s.
These workouts commonly feature:
In a range of colours and styles.

Move it or lose it. Nice work out for your bum!
Today’s workout is designed to challenge your rear end from every angle – and true to it’s name, you will feel the burn! You can do this workout with or without weights. I like to get something heavy in there to intensify the challenge. Repeat this circuit 2-4 times, depending on the intensity you are looking for. Make sure that when attempting any squats or lunge movements, you do not let your knees move past your toes. Make sure to always trace your feet with your knees, meaning they are both pointing the same direction during these movements. In the plie squat hops, make sure to tuck your tailbone and keep your shoulders pulled back, with your back straight. I chose a 5 minute jump rope interval warm up, as well as 30 minutes of foam rolling and stretching to cool down.

Excellent Nigerian designed swimwear for women.
Tired of the classic matching top and bottom bikini? It’s time to refresh your swimwear after a long, cold, dreary winter. I have been loving the collections by Andrea Iyamah and recently found a new little gem… Winifred Taylor (see article on Fashionbombdaily.com). I’m really feeling the cut out pieces,all the extra ties and of course the bright colors! I’m really looking forward to summer… time to get back in the gym!
Angela Simmons, who is famous for rocking Nigerian designers regularly, loves Andrea Iyamah and has been spotted wearing several pieces from the designer.
Here are a couple of pieces form her 2014 collection:
I’m keeping me eye on Winifred Taylor and I’m looking forward to seeing how the designs evolve. Like Andrea Iyamah and other swimwear brands she’s on trend with the cut outs, halter necks and color. I really like the digital prints…

The latest advice from the Australian Medical Assocation (AMA) urges people
not to lose it in lycra!
Australians are being encouraged to get off the couch and exercise for an hour a day in order to get and stay healthy.
The updated advice, prepared by the Federal Health Department, says Australians should aim for 60 minutes of exercise each day, doubling the amount of activity formerly recommended, and well above that stipulated in international guidelines.
It is based on evidence showing physical inactivity is the second-greatest contributor to Australia’s cancer burden, behind smoking. Research has shown that switching from a sedentary lifestyle to undertaking at least 30 minutes of exercise each day can cut the risk of heart disease by up to 40 per cent.
The guidelines also encourage people to avoid prolonged periods of sitting, and to participate in muscle strengthening activities at least twice a week.
Lead author Professor Wendy Brown said people needed to aim for between 150 and 300 minutes of moderate intensity exercise – that is, activity that takes some effort but at an intensity that allows you to talk – each week.
