I was lucky enough to get a secondhand set of Jane Fonda's Step Aerobic video and Aerobic Steps back when Tara was a baby, so 15 years ago, more or less.
Took me a few weeks to build up to a full session on a decent step height, and I was in my mid 30s at the time.
Fast forward several house moves, and losing the whole kit 'n' caboodle during one of the moves, and one day a Sparkteam member on London and the South East mentioned her videos were on You Tube.
Sadly, not the step aerobic one I had, but a couple of walking aerobic ones are there, among others, so I thought I'd see how she makes out against my walking fave - Leslie Sansone
This is Jane Fonda's Walking Cardio Workout: Level 1 Video:
And this is her Walking Cardio Workout: Level 2:
I don't know how long ago these videos were made (she is now 75), but she lets slip during one of the two videos that she has had her left knee replaced, AND her right hip!
Well, I was able to keep up comfortably with her during the level 1 video, but betcha by golly wow! Level 2 had me huffing and puffing and struggling to keep up by the end! It was a terrific workout!
My only slight criticism is that she doesn't tend to keep to the beat of the music, which I find a tad distracting at times.
Other than that, she has you working good and hard, and they are well worth trying out. 18-20 minutes of aerobics and 6-8 mins of stretches after. A complete workout in each video.
I am finding more and more these days that You Tube is an absolute goldmine of Exercise videos. If someone has come up with an exercise routine, chances are there is something available on You Tube these days.
Why don't you have a poke around and see what there is. You may be pleasantly surprised! :-)
