Denise Austin: Fitness Icon

Using her trademark quirk and seemingly ceaseless energy, Denise Austin has been gently whipping our butts into shape for years. Now, the superwoman who helped revolutionize fitness through our TVs, VCRs, and DVD players is back . . . but this time, she's gone digital.

Austin's new 10-Week 360° Plan offers advice, healthy recipes, tips, videos, and more, all accessible via tablet, smartphone, or laptop. Think of it as the healthier Hulu (and, coincidentally, a good option for Hulu addicts looking to integrate a bit more activity into their lives).
