It's time to Trim Tone & Flex! As we age, it is so important to stay active, strong and flexible. Toning and stretching the body promotes weight loss and also protects our bones, reduces jont stress and increases brain function. Both my upper- and lower-body workouts build lean, healthy and supple muscles. And, they are fun to do! Try these 20-minute workouts a few times a week and you'll be healthier, stronger and feel great! Onward, Jane Program Description: Upper Body: 20 minutes: Prime the body with joint-lubricating moves, then we'll sculpt and slim the arms, shoulders, back and belly using weights and balance exercises. Finish with flexibility stretches to improve range of motion. Lower Body: 20 minutes: Loosen up with gentle joint rolls before we work all the major muscles of the legs, hips and buttocks with seated and standing exercises sure to tone and trim. End with safe and soothing stretches for optimal flexibility. Bonus! 10-minute relaxation program to quiet the mind and releive stress A towel, chair and a set of light weights are recommended.
Jane Fonda hits another home run with Trim, Tone & Flex, a very doable, yet sneakily challenging, workout for older folks or those who haven't exercised in a while. Fonda is, as always, in her element, encouraging, demonstrating proper technique, and cracking wise to help move things along. In Trim, Tone & Flex, she is joined by other exercisers who demonstrate how to take each move easier, or how to push yourself a bit more. Trim, Tone & Flex consists of two 20-minute workouts, one for the upper body and one for the lower. Both routines use light weights (3- to 5-pounders for true beginners would be good, and up to 10 pounds for those who are very fit), as well as mat moves, yoga poses, and good old standbys like squats and lunges. The routines can be done back to back for a full-body workout, or on alternate days, especially if the viewer is just starting out. Also included is a real treat: a 10-minute relaxation section that truly helps restore peace of mind and a sense of well-being. It's a great reward after a job well done doing these routines. Highly recommended. --A.T. Hurley

I purchased this video on Amazon Prime Video with my Roku box. I tried both, the upper and lower workout in one session and was amazed how in poor shape I have really become. I will be working out with Jane three evenings a week using this video. She has a sense of humor and is inspiring for any senior or pre-senior (like me) that wants to start exercising. It seems like you are actually there with her working out. It is 45 minutes of moves that your body and muscles actually feel, without the expense of having to pay monthly gym fees, or using your precious gas and time to get to a gym. After you finish you can do want you need to do in the comfort of your home!
You will need:
1. pair of small dumbbells - (a weight that you can use for 45 min) I have them at 5 lbs each and will work up to 9 lbs over the next few weeks
2. small chair (that is stable)
3. yoga mat
4. simple hand towel (thin and long) for stretching
Cheer to older people in pursuit of better health and physical fitness!
I hope someday you get to read this because I want you to know how much I appreciate what you have done for me. I'm about 6 months younger than you, but up until about a year ago I felt like an old lady. Today after losing 40 pounds, I move like I did when I was 20 and I feel amazing. I look pretty darn good for a 73 year old too. I started out doing the Prime Time "Walkout" and "Fit & Strong", then this year I got the two new ones, "Trim, Tone,& Flex" and "Firm & Burn". I work out with you three times a week and alternate the videos so that I'm never bored. The exercises are fun, and I'm so glad you keep reminding me to stand tall, hold in my tummy, and breathe. Even after all this time, I still need those reminders. I also like the fact that you address balance problems in seniors and I continue to work on that as well as refining my technique in performing the exercises, making sure I'm doing them right. I've been blessed to have had no major surgeries or illnesses in my life, so I am able to do the moves without risking pain. Oh, by the way, I wear a size 2 jeans, yea!! You are such an inspiration to me, Jane. Thank you so much. Looking forward to your next pair of videos.
Upper body workout (about 24 minutes)
One arm row
Alternating shoulder press
Biceps and balance
Lower body workout (about 17 minutes)
Ankle, leg warm-up, shin work
Up and down the chair
Squat hold with front raise
Hamstring curl, to rear work
Every part of the body is worked, and yet for the "older" person, it is not too demanding or too
hurtful to one's knees and hips, if they are slightly arthritic, as are mine. I strongly recommend
them to anyone who is 70 or older.
I have had an exercise lay off and must get back in shape- this is a good one to start with and my husband loves doing it with me.
