Rewind: Jane Fonda teaches us to get physical!

The nation knew her as an Oscar-winning actress and model with Hollywood pedigree, but in 1982 Jane Fonda showed just how versatile she was.

She encouraged everyone to get physical with the debut of her first workout video on April 24, 1982. "Workout," an exercise home-video, was her first step toward conquering the market and selling many, many, many tapes.

Now, in her seventies, Fonda still has a much-envied body and is working out seniors. See how she continues to keep the elderly in shape.
