Product Description

Dancing is one of my favorite ways to burn calories and stay fit. So join me and strengthen our heart, muscles and mind with three dance-based routines that can burn fat, firm your body and give you energy. My low-impact workouts are a safe, simple and effective way to get in shape at any age. Do these fun routines regularly, plus my bonus meditation segment, and you’ll look and feel your best! Onward, Jane Warm-Up (5 Minutes): It’s crucial that we warm up to gradually raise the heart rate and gently limber the body before every workout. Doo-Wop (10 Minutes): Tone key muscles and trim fat as we rock, bop and hand jive to the heart-pounding beat of live doo-wop music. Latin (10 Minutes): Let’s swivel our hips and strengthen the lower body and waistline with mambo, cha-cha and merengue moves that really burn and firm. Old-School Funk (10 Minutes): We’ll put the “fun” in funk with fat-burning disco moves and groovy grapevines that really get the heart pumping. Cooldown (5 Minutes): Lower your heart rate gradually as we finish with light toning, balance exercises and soothing stretches. BONUS: 18-minute meditation program to quiet the mind and relieve stress A towel, chair and a set of light weights are recommended.

Fitness queen Jane Fonda adds to her impressive Prime Time workout series, aimed at older exercisers or those who are new to fitness, with Firm & Burn. Firm & Burn is aimed at toning and fat-burning--the fun way. This dance-based aerobic routine is infectious, as is Fonda's own passion for the moves. As always, Fonda is very clear about setting up each new set of moves, and in providing ways to both modify a move for beginners, or to add intensity for those wanting to challenge themselves. The routine includes doo-wop, Latin, and funk segments, as well as Fonda's all-important warm-up and cool-down segments. Some of the moves are done with light weights (3- or 5-pound ones would be fine), and some of the moves are done against the back of a chair. Otherwise, all you need to Firm & Burn is a willing soul and a body that wants to move and shake. Firm & Burn also includes an interesting 18-minute meditation segment that is both relaxing and very focusing. It's a nice way to end the Firm & Burn exercise "class," but it definitely doesn't need to be done every time. Well, what are you waiting for? Let's get moving! --A.T. Hurley

This video is also a great workout.

The music as well as the interaction between the people she uses in her video bring a whole new level of energy and fun to low impact cardio.

Just enough movement to make me sweat a little and feel I am getting a good workout.

I used to love doing aerobics and jazzercize, but I've found that too many dance-related DVDs require a bigger learning curve than I want to commit to. Much of it is hip-hop or Latin, the instructors rush you through the instructions, and I worry that I'll hurt myself as I try to keep up with steps that sometimes don't seem very healthy to start with. (Granted, I could master them if I stuck with it, but I have a big collection of exercise DVDs, and I rarely do the same one twice in a row.)

I love Leslie Sansone, but sometimes I just want a little more variety.

I've only done the warmup and the first routine here so far. I found Jane's workout to have more in common with Leslie's DVDs than the usual dance ones because it's easy to follow and uses some of the same basic moves. However, there are some fun variations, too. There's enough repetition that you can zone out to a degree (which I think is important for stress relief), but then she changes it up, so you do need to keep on your toes.

I anticipate using this DVD often as a break from the walking DVDs.

And having a live band on premises is a fun change from the other workouts!

It is interesting! Much of this video is the same as her older videos, but with more conservative moves which are great if you are starting to get into shape or older. As always, she is encouraging. Product in perfect condition.

Jane Fonda's Low Impact Cardio contains three dance workouts. I enjoyed these light and fun dance based moves which are easy to follow. Ms. Fonda explains the steps clearly. I occasionally missed a few steps, but I just kept moving my body. Ms. Fonda dances with four women and one man, of various age levels. You may do the whole workout or choose which segments to follow. A live band plays pleasant, fun, and enjoyable music.

Great workout for seniors. Enjoy being able to follow along with Jane and get my daily workout at home. Had rented this from the library but now I have it at home and able to work out with Jane daily.

I worked out with Jane in my 30s and 40s but after age 50 I let myself go and gained 30 lbs. I lost that weight over the past 6 months by walking 10,000 steps a day on my treadmill. Boring but effective. Santa brought this tape and I just completed it for the first time. Fun and doable in spite of my 61 year old body. In the extras Jane provides a 10 minute meditation with breathing exercises. Wonderful!

Younger exercisers may not find this to be difficult enough but there are lots of Programs for them. This tape is perfect for those of us who are looking to stay fit and fabulous in our "Third Act" and beyond.

I don't know why Target has this DVD early, but they do and I picked it up on Friday. It reminds me so much of Jane's original workouts. I love the class setting and the music. It's a fun workout and if you liked her earlier workouts, you'll enjoy this one, too!

I have never been a dancer. However, dancing always looked fun, and I wanted to try this DVD thinking that since it's designed for the "older" generation, there might be detailed instructions on the steps and proper form.
While Jane Fonda DOES do a good job of explaining the steps and reminding us of our posture, she is doing so AS SHE IS PERFORMING the routine.
I would like to have seen a section of the DVD devoted to explaining each step -- slowly -- with proper form explained.
Oh, I'm sure that with time I'll get better; however, since this was supposed to be designed for an older generation, I would think that teaching the steps and proper form to avoid an injury would have been of utmost importance.
Also, she says, "From the top" quite a bit and I can't figure out what the "top" is because I was so focused on getting the steps down and keeping proper posture that I couldn't remember where we started.
Again, I'm sure I'll get better with time and may come to enjoy this DVD more. If so, I'll revise my review and up the stars. But, for now, I think it's only worth 3 stars.

I am 64 and new to exercise dvds. I have purchased a variety in the past 6 months and find that I exercise to Jane Fonda's more than any others. "Firm & Burn" provides a very good workout when I have the energy for it. "Walk Out" is less intense. "AM PM Yoga" and "Fit & Strong" are my choice at the end of the work week when energy is low. "Trim, Tone and Flex" is also good. I enjoy Jane's low keyed style, advice on health issues and choice of music. I used to have to force myself to exercise and now look forward to it. If Jane keeps creating exercise dvds, I will continue buying them.
