Jane Fonda’s new exercise programs. Excited!!

I’m excited because things are falling into place for my 2 new exercise DVDs (used to be videos). We will film them mid March. Lionsgate will distribute. They have 8 of the top 10 exercise programs. But mine will target an audience that has been left out: MY age group and the boomers. I want to get to people who have stopped working out, or never did, or… I can’t wait. They won’t be released, though till beginning of 2011. But you’ll see photos (and film?) of me getting ready, of me actually making them, etc etc. What should I wear? Curious to hear from you about this. These folks I’m working with can do these productions with their eyes closed. I have to laugh when I think of when I did the first ever…still the largest selling home video of all time…17 million copies. WE had no budget, no hair stylist or makeup artists. We did it all ourselves. I wrote the script on a ski trip in Calgary on the floor of my hotel room. Who knew that that video would launch the video business…literally, people weren’t willing to pay a lot for the hardware, the machinery, when they had nothing they wanted to watch over and over..till my JF Workout. Stay tuned.

See you next time.

  1. Well, dear friend Jane, How I came to this page was I was searching for DVD’s of tapes from your past, every one of which I bought and used daily in my earlier years! They kept me slim, happy, and feeling great!
    So I am now 83, 3 years after a hip replacement which left me very out-of-condition, and 40 pounds added on to my frame, which shrunk from 5’6″ to a current 5’3″ :-<, and I find walking very difficult, after years of 5 mph daily walks!
    I must get back in control, so this morning, I pulled out your 1986 Low Impact Aerobic tape, and LOVED doing everything except the floor stretch at the end (I doubt I could get up afterwards!). I feel re-energized, and started to look for another of your tapes with only 3 persons doing dance aerobics (including one to a Scottish piece of music) and had no success finding it in my diminished collection. Nor on your website! Do you recall such a tape? I loved it!
    Anyway, I started hunting for DVD's of the worn tapes so I can more easily exercise to them every morning, and somehow I found THIS web page, and am all excited that my goddess is returning to help us get back to MOVING and enjoying it again!
    Is there a list you will contact once the information is available? I'd love to be reminded look for it when your new exercises appear, and I really hope you understand that even gals in their 80s want and need you to help us back to fitness! I don't want to continue wheezing and squeezing into my jeans any longer!
    Bless you, Jane. You are an inspiration!

  2. Just heard you were coming out with new video and a hope it works for a 78 year old female with a roll of fat around my waist.I have had trouble with a bloating tummy and after a lot of test I think its just that roll of fat that came in the last year of not exercising. I do the treadmill but hasn,t helped the butt or the fat roll. Anyway Hope your video helps me get the fat off. Thanks

  3. Can’t wait for your new DVD’s to come out. I’m 70 years old and need to get back into exercising.

  4. I was faithfully exercising with Janes Workout years ago and was wishing for someone to plan something for the 70’s group of seniors……lo, and behold Jane came up with it. Can’t wait to get the new DVD and start shedding some pounds.

  8. What happened to Leslie Lillian from your New Workout. I still “doIt” at 64 and from the 80’s,
    but I loved watching that little doll and thought she had real talent plus the looks to do well.

  9. Whatever happened to Leslie Lillien? I thought she was so cute and had a really good voice. Did she have a singing career?

  10. I was wondering where i could purchase the VHS of Jane Fonda excersie video from the 80s. I loved it I have devotedly used that video for years and it was dc’d. I would like it in a CD version.

    Thank you,
