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.”
