Jane Fonda Collection: The Complete Workout & Stress Reduction Program
Reviews of: Jane Fonda Collection: The Complete Workout & Stress Reduction Program
I actually used to watch my mom exercising to the original VHS when I was growing up. Then I borrowed her tape when I had my son, and never gave it back. She gave in and bought me the DVD. While the outfits are a bit ... out of style? the workout is great. I think Jane Fonda's workout is one of the very few I've found that's fully for the whole body, rather than overworking just your stomach/abs or something.
This video has big hair, leg warmers and & belted leotards ... but it also has all the things that made it an excellent workout video "back in the day."
I originally bought this video to get back in shape after the birth of my son. He's 18 now and I bought this again on DVD ... it's just a good workout.
The DVD includes the original Complete Workout, which is weights and upper body exercises, a half hour of mostly low impact aerobics, followed by lower body and abs. It really is a complete, head to toe workout.
Additionally, on the DVD is a very low impact aerobic workout and stress reduction exercises.
The routines are easy to learn, but still challenging enough. You can add more weight or ankle weights or just increase the intensity with bigger movements to make this the intensity level you want.
What I like the most about all of Fonda's workout videos, including this one, is that they're so balanced and never overwork or under-work one area.
Plus, it's just a lot of fun.
