Jane Fonda: Back & Better than Ever with New Workout (And She's Doing Yoga!)
At age 73, nearly thirty years after releasing her iconic Jane Fonda's Workout (and the best depiction of legwarmers ever), Jane Fonda is back and better than ever with a new version of Workout for the next generation. The program features yoga with Tara Stiles, sculpting and toning with Karena Dawn and Katrina Hodgson, and even a bootcamp workout with Jeanette Jenkins. (We love all of these people so we're super excited!)
Jane says she is "excited to bring [Workout] to the the next generation... What I started then, can now be continued by the best of today's rising fitness stars. My hope is that through these new faces, handpicked by me for their individuality and unique styles, I can continue to make the pursuit of fitness relevant for years to come."
What we love about the new Workout is that it will hopefully reconnect and inspire baby boomers to take charge of their personal health, many of whom have written off fitness because they feel it's either too late to start, they don't have the time, or they're overwhelmed. If at age 73 Jane is doing yoga, body sculpting, and boot camp (all while whipping cancer), why can't someone at age 50 take charge of their health and get started with a yoga class or fitness routine?
As you know, we're big fans of yoga and Tara Stiles, so we're particularly excited about the yoga DVD. Tara tell us exclusively:
Inspired by Jane's approach that anyone can improve their lives through regular fitness and healthy habits, I created Daily Yoga, a routine great for anyone who is looking to re-inspire themselves to cultivate a strong, flexible body and mind from the inside out. My hope is that Daily Yoga brings people back to themselves through a straight forward and fun yoga practice that can be done every day! Take long, deep breaths and enjoy!
Namaste to that!
