Denise Austin on Fitness

Denise Austin is a fitness industry pioneer who has sold more than 24 million exercise videos and DVDs, authored 12 books on fitness and starred in the longest-running fitness show in the history of television. Her trademark zest for life, positive outlook and can-do attitude have earned her the reputation of “America’s favorite fitness expert”.

The Balancing Act sat down with Denise to get some advice on finding the time to keep the whole family active:

“Exercise doesn’t have to mean going to the gym. Fitness DVDs for the whole family are often available at local libraries and video stores to try before you buy. Tap into specific interests – whether you enjoy yoga, dance or sport-specific conditioning, there’s something for everyone. And a little friendly competition doesn’t hurt either. See who can speed walk or run the fastest from point A to point B, or try a game of volleyball at the park, the beach or even your own backyard. As long as the activity is fun, getting everyone moving will be a snap!”

    Yeah, I would just like to say that I had read that Denise Austin was quoted in the Washington City Paper saying she was upset over lewd comments made about past clips on YouTube. According to the Washington DC weekly newspaper, Denise giggled when someone asked if she was aware that she’s become the object of so much perversion and said, “Now I’m worried!” She also said that she was totally unaware of it (yeah right!). I wonder if she has ever read any of the comments and giggled. Look up “Denise Austin Gets Indecent Exposure” to read the article.

    I just came across an untouched photo of Denise in natural light. She looks WAAAY over 50. She should stick to the heavily retouched photos of herself. Her sun-damaged skin makes her face and neck look like an 87-year-old.

    Denise Austin is getting a little long in the tooth but at least she looks her age now. :)

    Denise Austin seems not to have augmentation, botox, plastic surgery, etc. (That is, I’m not saying Denise hasn’t but if she has it’s less discernible.) She does enjoy photo retouching though. ;) Wonder what that Dorian Gray-esque painting in her attic looks like now? ;)
