What’s in a Fitness Reality Show?
You can probably guess by now that the term fitness reality shows isn’t new.
And that the genre has existed for decades, with some even dating back to the late-20th century.
But what’s the definition of fitness reality?
And how does it fit in with other genres like reality shows?
To find out, Entertainment Weekly sat down with James Baker, a professor of journalism and entertainment at the University of Georgia, to get his take on the concept.
Baker, who co-wrote the 2013 book, What Are Fitness Reality Games?, said that he and his co-author, Michael Strom, started thinking about fitness reality games as part of a larger project to figure out what kinds of genres fit into the genre.
Bennett and Strom said they had to go beyond the genres to find what was important to the audiences of fitness shows.
For example, fitness reality has a certain amount of depth to it.
You’re not going to see every person, but you’re going to get people who look good.
But the people you’re seeing are also a little more extreme.
You’ve got guys who wear a lot of makeup, who are very athletic.
You can find people who are not as athletic but you have some pretty good looking people.
Bakers said it’s important to look at a game’s gameplay in a wider perspective, because it’s not just a series of short-cut games.
“You can look at some of the most popular fitness reality sports franchises like CrossFit, and you can see that they have very similar mechanics and mechanics of fitness games, and they’re both competitive,” Baker said.
Barkers said he found the format to be unique, as it didn’t really fit into other sports genres.
“There are other genres that have been around since the early 20th century, and there are some games that are a little bit more competitive, but fitness games in particular have always had a certain sense of competition,” Baker explained.
“It has a lot to do with the competition and the level of physical training and the physical demands of the athletes.”
Baker said it was important that the format appealed to different types of viewers, so he focused on different types and audiences.
“The more competitive people want to compete, the more competitive you need to be, and the more physical-focused people want something that has that competitive aspect, the game will be appealing to a certain type of person,” Baker added.
While fitness reality game is still in its infancy, it already has a following on YouTube and Facebook.
Baked Alaska, a new fitness reality show on the Disney channel, has already garnered over 6 million views and nearly 30 million views, according to Mashable.
While fitness games are still in their infancy, Baker said he believes the genre will eventually find a place in a variety of genres.
He said it can be found in comedy, which has been a big hit on YouTube with some of his shows like The Fat Show, and music videos, which are still gaining popularity.
But he thinks the genre is still just beginning, and it’ll only become more relevant as fitness games become more popular.
“I think that the future of fitness is going to be in comedy.
I think comedy is going not only to become more mainstream, but I think fitness will become more of a niche sport, and fitness games will be more niche, and I think we’re going see a lot more comedy videos and fitness videos,” Baker told Entertainment Weekly.”
But I think that it will continue to grow.
There’s going to continue to be more and more comedy and more and better fitness games.”
