Jane Fonda Returns as Workout Queen for 70-Somethings

Celebrity Health & Fitness - Jane Fonda was the queen of fitness 25 years ago before it was fashionable in Hollywood and she helped launch a physical fitness boom. Now she’s trying to repeat history with a new set of workout DVDs aimed at her generation of active 70-somethings.

Fonda fell out of favor in the 1970s for traveling to Hanoi and protesting the Vietnam War. But she virtually reinvented herself and regained acclaim with her fitness videos.

Now 72, the actress is showing off her body in the same skimpy workout leotards she made famous a quarter century ago.

Like she did back then, Fonda wants to reinvigorate her generation with exercises geared to active seniors.

The Hollywood legend is aiming to mobilise a generation of senior keepfitters with slightly less strenuous activities than she performed 30 years ago.

In the DVDs, Walk Out and Fit & Strong, she stretches, lunges and lifts light weights in tight-fitting purple and black leotards with black trousers, a belt and trainers.

Her cropped hair is immaculately styled and make-up perfect – but the actress has admitted to going under the surgeon’s knife. ‘I got tired of not looking like how I feel,’ she told Entertainment Tonight.

‘It was a hard decision to make, and I decided if I’m going to do it, I’m going to tell the truth.

‘I’m writing a book about ageing, so I can’t write that book and not say I’ve had plastic surgery,’ the frank star added. ‘And you know, I just decided it was for me — I don’t want to have bags under my eyes that make me look tired, and so forth and so on.’

While her age-defying face has not been achieved naturally, Fonda’s fantastic figure is the result of a healthy lifestyle. The actress, who is largely credited with starting the aerobics fitness craze of the 1980s, says: ‘If I don’t stay active my body stops functioning.
