I used to do that workout oh so many years ago. You can find it on youtube. I am going to check it out but what I remember about that workout was her saying "bounce, bounce" which is really not advisable.
It sure whipped my body into shape though I remember being in pain for days.

Update: I just did the original 1982 workout. She actually has some really great exercises (and a couple not so great) but she whips through them like it's a race....just way too fast sometimes. And the bounce, bounce, bounce....not a good idea to bounce. But it was fun to relive the past and I will probably do it again and maybe try one of her updated ones. THe music isn't the same as I remember it and I missed that part of it.

Wow! Wish I would have saved that tape. Used to do it all the time. Brings back memories.

If you don't see a particular cardio exercise or video you do on the tracker's list, you can pick something that looks or sounds pretty similar, and use that to get an estimate of your calorie burning (which is based partly on your weight, so it might not be the same as for someone else doing the same workout) . Just select the entry that seems close to your workout, put in your time spent, and click on the link that says view calories burned. Then you can manually enter that number onto your tracker. Or you can use a general entry like the "aerobics, low impact" option that would include videos like Walk Away the Pounds, or the "aerobics, high impact" option that would be more like some of the more challenging videos that involve a lot of jumping, step workouts, etc. The tracker will include a calorie estimate whenever you select one of the entries that come up when you use the tracker's search box.

If you think you'll be using videos or other exercises that you can't find on the tracker quite a bit, another good option would be to get yourself a heart rate monitor to wear during your exercise. You can get one that also estimates your calorie burn and use that number, which will probably be a little more accurate than the tracker. That way, you can also tell whether you're getting your heart rate up in your target range.

Hope this helps.

how many calories you burn is very individualized. For a better estimate I would suggest investing in a heart rate monitor. In the meanwhile, try aerobics on the fitness tracker

How many calories a person burns doing an exercise DVD is going to vary from person to person. This is not an exact science. It's a best guestimate.

For now, you could log it under aerobics (low impact) general. I used to have that workout on VHS tape. It was pretty low impact. Lots of leg lifts and butt squeezing. lol.

Hi. New here. I am doing the beginner Jane Fonda DVD from the 1980s that I used way back when and lost weight, felt great, etc. I figured it worked once and will work again. But I don't have a clue as to how to enter this into the activity daily exercise thing a mi jig. So I just put in Jane Fonda into the notes. Does anyone know how many calories you burn etc in this workout? Thanks for helping.
