Great records: Praise-R-Cise is your musical Christian Aerobics weight-loss plan

Share this:

praise-r-cise

 

 

CHRISTIAN Aerobics was not like other aerobics (notably Muslim aerobics, Jewish aerobics and the Sikh aerobic, which is, as we know, glorified rhythmic gymnastics).

Christian Aerobics had a terrific tagline: “Praise-R-Cise.”  It was accompanied by Christian Music. And it worked.

Bernadette DiFrancesco, c0-founder of the anti-fat gospel with her husband Joey, told customers:

“I dedicated my diet to Jesus and lost 85 pounds…and with Prise–r-cise, I’m keeping it off for good.”
