Today is the 30th anniversary of the release of first Jane Fonda Workout Video. It feels like yesterday and 100 years ago. I’m sure you’ve had that same feeling. Still fresh yet so much water under the bridge. I am so different. The world of Fitness is so different.

Whoa, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I blogged—since Burlesque. I’ve been so swamped doing all the PR for my new exercise DVDs.

This blog is about what I did the night before I came to Ulster County to begin the film “Peace, Love and Misunderstanding.”

Under my Jane Fonda Workout brand, I will launch at year’s end a number of exciting new fitness programs of various styles starring the new faces of fitness: Karena Dawn and Katrina Hodgson, who have a large online following and are about to open the Tone It Up Studio in Hermosa Beach; Tara Stiles, who has the Strala yoga studio in downtown Manhattan and a book, “Slim, Calm, Sexy” about to be published by Rodale; and Jeanette Jenkins, President of The Hollywood Trainer who came and “performed” (wow!!) her aerobic dancing at World Fitness Day last May 1st.…

Jake came by the studio where we were filming my DVDs to do a shout-out for World Fitness Day and chat with me about the changes in fitness since we first met 30-some years ago. We used to work out in my driveway, using a broom handle, as I recall. He told me yesterday something I had not known: Ted Turner called him up one day and asked him to do a TV exercise show on TBS.…
