Old Bruce and Kris Jenner workout videos are my new favorite thing

Bruce Jenner Kris Jenner workout video Power Walk Plus

Long before they became mom and pop of America’s First Family of reality television, husband and wife Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner were trying their hats (and hard bodies) at another media venture as stars of a number of workout videos. A brief and awe-inspiringly dated clip from one of their early 1990s workout tapes titled “PowerWalk Plus” found its way onto Vine, and thanks to a share from Khloe Kardashian, it’s now the only thing any of us can think about:

The clip, initially uploaded by Vine user It Came From The VCR, includes these wonderfully euphemistastic words from Bruce: “You can pick it up, but you control the pace. As long as you stay nice and erect, you’re gonna be OK.”

I did a little research on the workout video (which you can buy new from Amazon for as low as $5 at the time of this post), and judging from the description it is more about the revolutionary PowerWalk equipment than the workout itself. And that revolutionary piece of equipment is basically just the missing link between treadmills and elliptical machines. Here’s the front cover followed by the description from the back of the video:

Now You Can Enjoy All The Benefits Of Walking PLUS A Total Upper Body And Lower Body Workout

Follow along as Kris and Brice Jenner take you on a PowerWalk Plus workout you can tailor fit to your own level of fitness. Then rev it up as you progress.

With the dual action of PowerWalk Plus you’ll burn fat, trim, tone and build muscle at a much faster rate than ordinary walking.

The Power Arms are adjustable to the level of resistance you prefer. If you are new to exercise, you’ll want to start out easy, and build up the level of resistance gradually over time. The Power pushing action will help build triceps, anterior deltoids and pectorals. Power pulling firms and builds biceps, posterior deltoids and upper lats.

With PowerWalk Plus, you’ll experience an improvement in your appearance, your vitality, endurance and self-confidence in no time.

While I was down the Bruce and Kris Jenner workout video rabbit hole I found a few other retro dandies, including this one featuring the duo demonstrating the “MiniMax Total Body Workout System:”

Bruce had a number of solo workout videos, plus at least two with his first wife Linda Thompson and another with Brenda Dykgraaf. Here’s a video clip from “Bruce Jenner — The Winning Workout” which features Linda:

Kris Jenner also had at least one other workout video titled “PowerToning II:”

Unfortunately I couldn’t find any clips of Kris Jenner’s workout. 🙁 However, if you’re really desperate for some throwback Kris Jenner, then I suggest you relive the greatest Kardashian family throwback video of all time — Kris Jenner’s “I Love My Friends” in honor of her 30th birthday!
