It's hard to fathom how this patronizing 55-minute tape can call itself a fitness video. Host Beverly Gemigniani, herself a retiree, leads inane routines that encourage minimal movement and would be most apt for the over-80 crowd. One involves beach balls—with balls that match the pink leotards Gemigniani and her dancers are modeling. They all act like ex-beauty queens afraid to look their age, hardly like any grandmas any of us know and love. (Maier Group, $19.95; 800-383-8811)
