Acting legend Sir John Gielgud released his own exercise LP and video, Feel Good With Gielgud, in 1983.

Said to have been inspired by Jane Fonda’s workout tapes, the series featured Gielgud in a smoking jacket and leg warmers, doing calisthenics while declaiming monologues from Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe.

The LP won the 1983 Grammy Award as best spoken word album.
