Healthy Aging-Stay healthy with Jane Fonda

I have not agreed with Jane Fonda on many things over the last 50 years. Now I’m calling a truce.  Finally she is doing something I can support. At 72 with a hip and knee replacement she is reaching out to teach Boomers how to exercise and remain healthy as they age. Her new videos are targeted to show how easy and important exercise is. This message cannot be emphasized too much. If you are over 50 and not exercising then start. If you are exercising, don’t stop.

I’m putting my disagreements with Jane on hold because this new message is so important and she is a perfect example. Exercise isn’t just important for healthy aging, it is a requirement. I hope to look as good and move as well when I reach 72. As she says, it doesn’t have to be hard but you do need to keep moving.

    Both of you are right! I know that if I miss more than two day in a row my joints begin to complain.

      Steve,
      Keep it up. You’ve got those beautiful beaches to walk on.

    If you can put your disagreements aside- maybe my husband can as well. He has never watched one of her movies….

    I’ll get him to watch the video. I think he may be ready to do that!

    Janette,
    So long as she focuses on health, I’m for her. If your husband is ready for one of her movies, you might try Klute or On Golden Pond. Skip Barbarella.
