Air-Guitar-Aerobics, a mixture of traditional aerobics and rockíníroll, has come to the UK - the loudest exercise craze for years.

The workout is performed to air-guitar classics (cranked up, natch) such as Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, and favourites from the likes of AC/DC and GunsíníRoses.

It was modelled on the success of a regime called Punk-Rock-Aerobics which has had New Yorkers keeping trim out of the mosh pit.

Rock has once again become the preferred musical genre of Europe and the success of bands like The Darkness has boosted demands for a rock-based exercise class.

American dance tutor and Air-Guitar-Aerobics creator Laila Hardman explained: "This is a really cool workout that's lots of fun.

"It works all major muscle groups, paying particular attention to the legs and the upper body."

The exercise is said to widen the appeal of aerobics to those who would not usually consider taking part in a class.

Not only does it attract those who prefer rock music, but it also holds a greater appeal to the male audience.

A survey claims a rock-tastic 34.3 per cent of male respondents strap on a virtual axe while listening to music at home.

Started aerobics a few weeks ago (my new year's resolution) and the instructor has shown me how to do these sit-ups without hurting my neck.
Going very well at the moment, thanks for asking.
