Kensington, London.

A story about a gym and health club in Kensington. Various shots of men on exercise bicycles sweating, doing various exercises and lifting weights. They are also using a range of toners including a strap round the middle which vibrates and all the fat wobbles. There is also a machine which spins round very fast which you sit on to reduce your bottom. Various shots of men doing exercises with weights. Afterwards they go into the Finnish sauna bath to relax. A man uses a Vibro-massage machine on his stomach, which is supposed to help weight loss. We see the restaurant where a healthy salad is served.

(None of the men look very happy about being in the gym – maybe they were forced into it? Some shots could be used to illustrate homosexuality / homo-erotica. SL)
