Jane Fonda is as much a staple of ’80s pop culture as Rubik’s Cubes, Pac Man, mullets and valley girls. She’s synonymous with the leg warmers and leotards that were so famous in that decade. While those days are long gone, Jane Fonda still looks great and is in the midst of a return to the fitness world… at the age of 72!
In the fitness diva’s reboot, Fonda is focused on senior fitness. She has a new DVD series called “Jane Fonda: Prime Time.” The ongoing series currently consists of two titles: “Fit & Strong” and “Walk Out.”
Fonda’s new DVD series is geared towards seniors, in that the exercises are low impact and some can even be done while seated. The ageless Fonda decided to do the fitness videos while researching her upcoming book, “Prime Time: How to Have a Great Third Act.” (more…)
Show will re-air Thursday, December 23, 2010.

Jane Fonda, 72, is springing back into her workout gear this fall to release two new DVDs designed for the generation that came of age feeling the burn from her first blockbuster workout tape, Jane Fonda’s Workout, debuted in 1982.
“I’m very excited to be back in the fitness business,” Fonda told PEOPLE magazine. “I know from experience and from my research how critical it is for boomers and seniors to be physically active. Even if they’ve never exercised in their lives, now’s the time and my programs are a good, safe way to do it.” (more…)
