Olivia Newton-John – The Artist

Olivia Newton-John, AO, OBE (born 1948) is an English-Australian singer, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, and activist. She has sold an estimated 100 million records worldwide, making her one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. She starred in the musical film Grease, and its soundtrack is one of the most successful in history, with the single “You’re the One That I Want”, with John Travolta, one of the best selling singles.

Physical – The Song

‘Physical’ is a song recorded by English-Australian singer Olivia Newton-John for her twelfth studio album, Physical (1981). It was released as the lead single from the album on 28 September 1981 by MCA Records. The song was produced by John Farrar and written by Steve Kipner and Terry Shaddick, who had originally intended to offer it to Rod Stewart. The song had also been offered to Tina Turner by her manager Roger Davies, but when Turner declined, Davies gave the song to Newton-John, another of his clients. “Physical” was an immediate smash success, in the UK and the United States selling millions of records. “Physical” ultimately became Newton-John’s biggest single and cemented her legacy as a pop superstar, a journey that began when she crossed over from her earlier country pop roots. The song’s suggestive lyrics, which even caused it to be banned in some markets, helped change Newton-John’s longstanding clean-cut image, replacing it with a sexy, assertive persona that was strengthened with follow-up hits such as “Make a Move on Me”, “Twist of Fate” and “Soul Kiss”.

Man Performing Press-Ups – The Shape

This record has been crafted into the silhouette of a man exercising by doing press-ups. A press-up (British Eglish) or push-up (American English) is a common calisthenics exercise beginning from the prone position. By raising and lowering the body using the arms, push-ups exercise the pectoral muscles, triceps, and anterior deltoids, with ancillary benefits to the rest of the deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis and the midsection as a whole. Push-ups are a basic exercise used in civilian athletic training or physical education and commonly in military physical training. They are also a common form of punishment used in the military, school sport, and some martial arts disciplines.
