As an experiment, I decided to use this book for two weeks with the suggested music. To my amazement, it really works! I'm just 20 and so it is a huge novelty not to follow a tv screen.
In the book, Jane doesn't just address aerobics, but where society places people in life, the enviroment and healthy eating.
I now have this workout on DVD so really use the book as reference to healthy living.
You would have thought that it would be hard to follow a book to workout with. But it isn't. For every move there are professionally taken indepth photographs with descriptions.
You really use this book until you remember the moves off by heart. But it's use doesn't stop there as it is jam packed with so much information.
And the funny thing is it feels better working out in the absense of a television screen.

I purchased this book based on three things. One I wanted to see an example of Jane Fonda's original 1982 workout(hard to find/expensive). Two I love almost all of JF workouts. Three the one review I read confirmed I needed this for my collection. This is truly a wonderful book I can see why it was a best seller. This book offers information on a wide range of subjects from self-esteem, diet, social and enviromental issues, not to mention the two workouts. This was a great buy.

This book offers a begginer and advanced workout. Each workout begins with warm-up and ends with a cool down. At the begging of each exercise routine there is a list of music that could accompany the exercise. This can be used as a guide to choosing your own music. Both routines have an aerobics, arms, waist, abs, hips and thighs, bottocks. The workouts last about 30-45 for beginner and 40-60 mins for advanced. The cardio portion of both workouts are simple but short, however you can easily extend it.

This workout is great for the flexibility it offers. This is a workout that you can truly make your own. You could even do it while you are watching television. One of the things I really liked was making my own music to this workout. Being abel to chose your own music that you enjoy, really keeps you going. This is great if you like to make compilation tapes or cds.

Now I know what your thinking I don't go for exercise books. And for the most part I would agree, with all the page turning reading descriptions and the pictures that make no sense. But this is written and shown in a very clear manner. Over time this should just be a guide. Because you should start to memorize the workout.

I absolutely loved this book when I was in my 20's. I got tired of the same old routine & went on to other things focusing on cardio. I then began walking for years. Now that I am in my 50's I have noticed that I am not as flexible & that my muscles are sagging. After some thought, the little book called to me again. I was surprised that I was able to do many of the beginners & advanced exercises. I began to see results of my efforts very quickly in loss of inches & I am toneing up. The book is well illustrated & has step by step detailed instructions with pictures in stages to match the instructions. While I am no longer able to do every exercise, I can do many of them. I used to have the record to go with this book & loved it. I feel great after stretches. Just a word of note: this book came out before weights & stretchie bands were used.

I bought this book in the 80's after the birth of my son. Within 4 months, I had lost 20 lbs & was toned & trim. A few years ago, I made the stupid error of getting rid of it. I repurchased it again because the excercises remain effective and it is a killer workout. Old school for me is the way to go!

I used to do this workout in the 80's and found it again for 2014 since I had put on some weight. Used to do the Advanced long ago, but now the Beginner's workout is just as worthy and works just as good as the Advanced (I'm out of practice!). Book was also in excellent condition from seller! You've got to have this book!!!

I first used this workout program, using only the book, when it first came out in the 1980s. (I used a Michael Jackson LP for the music!) Like another reviewer, I also am 54 and would get up at 5am to do this workout before heading for the commuter train to work. I was also then taking dance classes, and was immediately struck (and reassured) by some of the similarities between the JF workout and a dance class warm-up. Fast forward to today -- weight work, cardio, and Iyangar yoga make up my workout week. But today, for the first time, I took a mat Pilates class at the gym, which made me think of the JF workout. Unfortunately, I got rid of my original book many years ago when we moved, but I plan to buy it again soon! I have realized that it's truly timeless.

I first got this book, along with the audio tape, when I was 21. I'm 54 now. Jane did a lot of things in her life I do not support, however, this book I definately do. At the time of my life, it's historical. She actually gave me the courage to be myself, use my own energy, etc, etc. I'd get up each morning at 5:00 a.m. and listen to the audio tape and do the workout and then go to work and it literally saved my life. I lost 50 pounds and have never regained it, even after having two children. Her dicussion of Katherine Hepburn was certainly inspirational. Just decide you're worth it and you'll be happy you bought the book and did it! I just hope they re-release the audio as well as the book. I have very serene memories of working out to "Wasting Away Again in Magaritaville"! Always loved it.
