The History of the Fitness Industry
6 October 2018 | by johnmwireSee all my reviews

As a fitness enthusiast this film means more to me than to most people. This film is as much an educational resource as it is an entertainment piece. It gives people an opportunity to learn about the true pioneers of the fitness industry. Awesome production. Hats off to the caste and crew.
