Are you ready for the return of the Jane Fonda Workout? You never heard of it? Well, perhaps you're too young.

Okay, Boomer - I'm talking to you. This famous workout, originally on VHS Tape, was one of the best around at the time. So, Jane Fonda, with her newly found "spare time," decided to do a new one with the proceeds going toward dealing with climate change.

Apparently, there is an upside to the new requests to stay at home. Jane must have found free time that she didn’t have before. But, being the workaholic that she is, she is going to produce some new workout routines.

Jane Fonda is a writer, producer, and actress. She was a former fashion model before her acting career took off and she eventually added another title to her resume – activist. She was opposed to the Vietnam War, and that political point-of-view didn’t go over too well at the time. She’s also considered a feminist and co-founded the Women’s Media Center.

Fonda is 81 years old today, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at her. She is currently starring in a self-produced show, “Grace & Frankie, along with Lily Tomlin. Jane doesn’t have any inclination to slow down.

Jane Fonda's Original Workout

It was way back in the 1980s that the empire of Jane Fonda workout videos began. It started and never stopped. It sold it great numbers and launched a whole series of videos with slightly different emphasis in each one, such as light impact, heavy impact, yoga, and so on.

The original workout video contains a 30-minute program, aimed at beginners, and a 60-minute advanced program. It combines different elements such as dance, yoga, and the well-known Jane Fonda aerobics. Aerobics are great for improving cardiovascular health and they allow you to have fun at the same time.

Remastered DVD and Streaming


Jane Fonda's Original Workout has been remastered for DVD and it can be found on Amazon for approximately $15.00. It is considered “Amazon’s Choice” and rates 4 ½ stars, or a 7.8 on iMDB (also owned by Amazon, by the way).

There is also a Collector’s Set available containing five DVDsand they’re considered some of the best-selling workout videos of all time. This set is on sale on Amazon for about fifty bucks.

There are more options to consider if you ever tire of Fonda’s original workout. On Amazon streaming you’ll be able to find Jane Fonda’s New Workout, Jane Fonda’s Complete Workout, and Jane Fonda’s Low Impact Workout.

Jane Fonda has joined TikTok and will be bringing her fitness routines with her. Always one to get behind great causes, the new release is set to help fight climate change. Jane puts her money where he mouth is – she was arrested several times in New York while protesting the lack of progress on climate change.

Jane is also well aware that the yung-uns (young people) might not know who she is. She encourages you to Google her. And while you’re online, you can preview some of these workout tapes right on your computer.

Jane Fonda’s 1982 workout routine is still the best exercise class out there. It will surely be exciting to see what she does next.
