BODY BY JAKE

Posted on April 16, 2010, in Health & Fitness, My Blog, with 13 Comments

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 …

SORE AND SAD

Posted on April 13, 2010, in Health & Fitness, My Blog, with 22 Comments

Too many people I love are very sick right now. People much younger than I. My body aches for them. It also aches because I have worked out all day yesterday and today, making my new DVDs.

Today’s the day that I went to the studio of producer/director, Darren Capik to be interviewed about my history in the fitness business, how I started it, why I am interested in doing programs for boomers and older folks, how being healthy is related to self empowerment, to ‘owning your body’ and not giving it away, exposing it to disease, …

WAS THE JANE FONDA WORKOUT RESPONSIBLE FOR MY KNEE REPLACEMENT?

Posted on June 22, 2009, in My Blog, with 55 Comments

A recent article in the Daily Mail reports that my knee replacement surgery was the result of years of repetitive pounding from doing my Jane Fonda Workout programs. Wrong! It is a result of osteoarthritis which my father, Henry Fonda, also suffered from, as does my brother, Peter, who may need hip replacement soon. You never saw them doing …
