Flo Rida recently revealed that fans should be on the lookout for a workout DVD from the "Wild Ones" rapper. Flo told Billboard.com, "I'm definitely going to [release a workout DVD]. I have quite a workout regimen. I've always been about fitness and my fans can definitely appreciate that." 

It's obvious that Flo Rida spends hours in the gym, but we wanted to remind you that he's not the only one. Artists from all walks of the musical world have been workin' on their fitness since way back in the day, and the resulting videos are most often...ridiculous.  

"Move dumbbells" with Marky Mark, uncomfortably girate with LaToya Jackson and run laps in an indie band tee with Bon Iver: Check out our list of the 5 most ridiculous celebrity workout videos.

5. Carmen Electra's "Aerobic Striptease"
The model, actress and one-time musician gets very liberal with her use of the word "workout." Take a look at her sexy-time moves below (but not when your boss is around).

4. Spice Girls' Mel B, "Totally Fit"
Come on. We all know Scary Spice doesn't stay ripped by marching in place next to a pool in California—she slams her body down and winds it all around. 

3. Mark Wahlberg, "The Marky Mark Workout: Form, Focus, Fitness"
Back when he was regularly accompanied by a Funky Bunch, Mark Wahlberg was also performing highly sexualized workouts next to female spotters in his own workout tape. (If you're feeling particularly inspired, the original is still available on Amazon for $70.)

2. LaToya Jackson, "Step Up with LaToya Jackson"
So many questions: Who greenlit this? Where can I buy the soundtrack? Why was LaToya the only one allowed to wear a snazzy leotard? Help, I need an adult.

1. Bon Iver's Workout DVD
Because when I'm crippled with longing and sorrow while sobbing to "Skinny Love," the only thing that will ease my pain is squat lunges with Justin Vernon. After the clip below hit the Internet early last year, we have yet to see a full-length video come to fruition. But when it does, expect "50 minutes divided into a weight circuit, body circuit and ab circuit" set to "cool music instead of something stupid" (according to director Dan Huiting).
