SECRETS OF AN A-LIST BODY: This week, how to get Jane Fonda’s waist

  • At 80-years-old, the Hollywood actress has a waist as trim as it was in the 1980s
  • In this era she was known for fitness and dubbed the decade’s aerobics queen
  • To this day she boasts an enviable shape, which is down to Pilates and long walks

They say age is nothing but a number – and that’s certainly true for Jane Fonda. 

At 80-years-old, the Hollywood actress has a waist as trim as it was in her days as aerobics queen of the Eighties.

This is partly down to the fact she’s a fan of Pilates, long walks, and resistance bands. 

Looking good! The acclaimed actress and campaigner is certainly ageing rather well

‘I have a fake hip, knee, thumb; more metal in me than a bionic woman, but I still do Pilates,’ she has said.

So how can you replicate her enviable shape? Simply follow these rules and you’ll be on your way. 

WHAT TO TRY: The star toner will whittle your waist.  

Stand in front of a chair with your left side facing the seat. Balance on your right leg then extend your left leg out to the side, so your left foot rests on top of the seat. 

Extend your arms to form a ‘T’ shape. Hinge at the waist and reach your right hand towards the ground. Keep your left leg still. 

Engage your abdominal ‘core’ muscles to return to standing. 

Repeat 12 times then change sides.
