Does anyone on here remember the Elaine Powers Figure Salon in the Quakertown Shopping Center in the early 70s???

Worked there, sure wish I would have kept my "cheat sheet" of the floor exercises we use to do with the members every hour on the hour...

I remember some but not all... They were great and they worked...They were great for all ages...

I was a member there, back from the day they opened.
However I had been involved in yoga, weights and jogging(before it was called jogging).
I was excited by having a place to go to exercise with others, but it wasnt just about exercise only. It was about weight loss.
I didnt need to lose wieght.
I stayed for whatever period it was under the terms of the contract.
Quakertown didnt have any fitness centers back then. They were the closest thing to having a fitness center.

I recall being very very bored the first few weeks.
They limited your time on the equipment and a workout in those first weeks ran for maybe 20/30 mins max!

That wasnt even enough time for me to break a sweat...lol

Evenutally I got disgusted with all of them and invested into my own equip.

I remember Elaine Powers Fitness Studio in Ft.Lauderdale in the late 70's. I used to go there with my friend who was an instructor. It was fabulous. Every time I hear David Bowie I think of it. I have developed an exercise routine to the "Long After Dark" CD, Tom Petty, that covers the whole body and it's only 35 minutes and I have fun doing it. If you were an instructor, you can see which are the best songs for you to use on which parts you want to work on.

Attended Elaine Powers in Lake Co., OH in 1970. They had a 3-part vibrating table that was supposed to boost matabolism -- it didn't! But it was wonderful for aligning the spine -- best posture I ever had until my membership ended. Anyone know what happened to those tables?
