Chrissy Teigen takes us back to the ’90s by channeling Cher as a fitness trainer, inspired by the singer’s now viral workout videos.
In the early 1990s Cher created a series of training videos called CherFitness and Chrissy Teigen bring them back! The model dressed up as the ’90s version of Cher to recreate the fitness videos and shared her opinion on it on a series of Instagram clips. For the series, Chrissy wore a sheer sequin bodysuit and a curly black wig that was pulled back into a messy ponytail.
“It’s 38 minutes of fat burning fun!” she said in the first clip, holding a neon green resistance band in her hand. She also hiked up her underwear and couldn’t keep her face straight when she started cracking towards the end. In a second clip, she sat on all fours to shake her bum for a series of movies, and in a third video, she comically tried to use the resistance bands while lying on her back.
It also appears that Chrissy had these fake videos in the arsenal for quite some time as she admittedly couldn’t decide when the appropriate time would be to share them. “I honestly have no idea when the time is right for this,” she wrote. She was also followed by the comment “@Cher I love you” to make sure the singer knew she was imitating her out of love!
Cher posted two workout videos during her tenure as a fitness guru. The first was CherFitness: A New Attitude in 1991. It consisted of a 38-minute step workout, followed by a 10-minute abs workout and a 32-minute segment for the hips, buttocks, and thighs. This video was followed by CherFitness Body Confidence, which included a 38-minute “hot dance” and 45 minutes of resistance training. Chrissy mimicked the latter in her video series.
Chrissy’s clips comment section immediately filled up with people engaging with their videos. Many also indicated that it was similar Janet Jackson and Selena Quintanilla in her getting up. Of course there were plenty of fans who were also pretty confused by the footage, but Chrissy often gathers that reaction with her goofy social media activity!
