Where else can you get a great, free workout? This fall, filmmaker Douglas Knox, who has worked out with park equipment for years, plans to release The Thug Workout, a 60-minute video set to music by hip- hop acts like DMX and Styles. The video, shot in New York and Miami Beach, is produced by New York- based Ruff Ryders Entertainment, founded as a record label in 1988 by brothers Joaquin and Darrin Dean, who grew up in Harlem. How it works: You don't have to be an authentic thug to get into the video (although prison yards fostered such workouts). Think pull-ups on a park shelter's pipe framework, or pushups on a basketball court. The idea is to watch, remember and replicate the exercises performed on the video by just "regular guys" at a park or playground, says the video's producer, Leslie Sabin, who admits to doing "the thug thing" in a park near her New Jersey home. Target audience: It's for a generation that's fed up with trendy workouts. "These guys don't go to Bally or even the YMCA. They use [what] they played on when they were kids," Sabin says. What better way to spend your second childhood? Literature for every taste Who could have guessed the book club craze would further ignite when Oprah packed up hers in April? From Katie and Man at NBC's Today show to White House staffers, the urge to read and discuss books has never been greater (although you must work for Dubya to take part in the 1600 Penn Book Club). Maurice J. Freedman, president of the American Library Association, says book clubs have become an extension of who we are. Want to find the right one for you? Consider these: USA TODAY Book Club One of the first to fill the Oprah void, the"nation's newspaper" uses an online format, inviting readers to comment about editor picks as well as chat with featured authors of new books. Ahead: An occasional look at literary classics. Biggest drawback: Without computer access, you're limited. Martha's Favorite Books Despite questions about her role in an insider trading scandal, domestic diva Martha Stewart kicks off her TV show's brand-new club this fall. Book type: Selections will range from mysteries and children's books to first-time authors. Naturally, Stewart, a voracious reader, makes the choices. Expect a high literary tone. But there's no forum for viewer interaction. Novelty factor: Besides in-studio author interviews, look for the authors to help Martha in the kitchen. Reading With Kelly > "We were just kidding around, says Michael Gelman, executive producer of TV's syndicated Live With Regis and Kelly. "[Regis] brought it up on the air. 'Wouldn't it be funny if Kelly had a book club?'" Book type: Philbin calls it "beach trash." Adds Gelman: "You won't hear about non-fiction with deep, meaningful messages. We decided to have a more populist book club instead of trying to change the world." Membership: Romance novel devotees. Cost-conscious club members who comment online thanked Ripa for choosing The Bachelor by Carly Phillips, because it's a paperback. Libraries The nation's public libraries still house the most book clubs... and books! Novelty factors: Open to anyone with a library card; borrow, don't buy. ca Contributing: Elizabeth Kaye McCall, Robin Tunnicliff Reid 18 USA WEEKEND-Sept. 20-22,2002
