Home Workout Fitness Video DVDs Can Be Harmful – Study

Health & Fitness, News

A recent study that used 10 popular fitness DVDs, a group of researchers concluded that the imagery and language used in these DVDs can create harmful psychological impact on some people. According to Oregon State University Kinesiology professor Brad Cardinal, “The findings showed that imagery in fitness videos may be perpetuating and reinforcing hyper-sexualised and unrealistic body images.”

The study also found that these DVDs sometime use de-motivational statements that can have a negative impact on the overall goal of the system. Professor Cardinal expressed concern that although this is an almost 250 million USD business worldwide, there is hardly any monitoring on the contents of them.
