Submitter: I’m working on a weeding assignment for my collection development/management class, and I chose the physical fitness section. Initially, I was tempted to suggest weeding the whole thing based on the publication dates, the abysmal circ and in-house use stats, and the horrible 80s attire. Flipping through them, though, I’ve found that several have relevant information, even though they are a few decades old. Then there’s this one. I have to say, I’ve worn some pretty tacky shorts and awful attire when lifting, but never, ever has it occurred to me that I’d be more comfortable in a leotard!!
Sadly, the cover was nothing interesting…just plain yellow. Couldn’t even make out the title on it, it’s possible it was a paperback at the time of purchase and was rebound, etc.
Holly: I never understood that whole leotard and ballet slippers getup that people loved to wear while exercising in the 70s and 80s. Thank goodness shorts and t-shirts became the new norm.
