Storyline

In the first scenes of this picture we have a chance to see Mr. James J. Corbett as an actor in his "glad rags" and society, where Mr. Corbett meets Miss Florence E. Turner. "The Vitagraph Girl," leads her into the mazy waltz, and while they are dancing she falls fainting into his arms. He leads her to a sofa, and, with the assistance of her chaperone, revives her, tells her she should take more exercise and invites her to his physical culture studio. She accepts his invitation. The next evening, with her chaperone, she calls to see him and arranges to take some lessons under his instruction. In the gymnasium he explains to her the uses of the one hundred pound punching bag. Professor Cooper now takes her in hand for a few exercises, showing how to reduce the waist and hips, the method of removing flesh on the upper part of the body, strengthening the back, hips and thighs and abdominal muscles. At home Miss Turner practices the methods taught her by Mr. Corbett and the Professor. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
