With increasing public awareness and media attention on healthy living, people are becoming more and more aware of the need to keep fit, to workout and exercise.

Not only that, but as I mentioned before, Tapes and DVD's are available on a variety of subjects - everything from Yoga to Aerobics is covered, making them effective 'keep fit' tools to have in your inventory.

Although living in today's society can sometimes be harsh, it
