Do the Jane Fonda

For those who are addicted to the execrable "Jane Fonda" by Mickey Avalon (which, it must be said, is about threesomes) I would like to point them in the direction of 1982 when Fonda herself released an album. No, it wasn't Fonda singing - although wouldn't that be a hoot? "War What Is It Good For" perhaps?) but is instead Jane Fonda's Workout Record!

Yes, yes, Jane Fonda's Workout Record, where each track is a workout song for a designated part of the body. Warm up to The Jackson Five's "Can You Feel It", work those arms to REO Speedwagon's "In Your Letter" and tighten up the buttocks to Jimmy Buffett's "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Altitudes" (how apt). Billy Ocean's "Night (Feel Like Going Down)" is what you need to get those legs and hips into shape, while Linda Clifford's disco stormer "Bridge Over Troubled Water" will those abdominal muscles into a sexy six-pack all before cooling down to the sounds of "Harbor Lights" by Boz Scaggs, naturally.

"The whole philosophy behind this album is a holistic approach to physical and mental well-being. From the up-tempo 'Stomp' by the Brothers Johnson, to Boz Scaggs' soothing 'Harbor Lights', there's much music here to provide a variety of dance and exercise experiences to fill not only physical, but also emotional needs.
The music forms the basis for a series of carefully structured exercises (from beginner thru advanced) which utilize each part of your body in specific sequence.
Whether you're 15 or 50, with the help of this album and a little hard work, you can achieve a well-proportioned healthy body - not to mention the outward glow that comes from feeling good inside.
So be in harmony with your age. Learn to understand and respect your body. It's your temple. And remember, discipline is liberation!"

Buttocks tight!

I was so thrilled when I found this album (on double LP no less) for two euro in a second hand store. My friends wouldn't come up to the counter with me to buy it, they were that ashamed. It's awesome. I play it all the time!

HAHAHA I found this one at Dixons about 2 years ago for $5. BARGAIN. One of my most prized vinyl possessions.
