Fitness guru and actress Jane Fonda is voting for SHAPE in the Webby Awards! We're huge fans of Fonda (she was our guest of honor at SHAPE's 30th birthday party in October!), so having her support means a lot to us. A leader in the fitness industry, Fonda has released more than 20 aerobics videos since 1982.
There's a reason we presented Fonda with the "Shape Your Life" award at the 30th anniversary party—Fonda's a true inspiration for all things healthy. Fonda says on her blog that when she was approached about making her first fitness video, she had misgivings. She thought maybe a few people would see it; instead she sold 17 million copies—and that was just the first one! There's no doubt that her videos changed the entire industry.
And she doesn't have plans to slow down any time soon! Yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of the release of her first fitness video. She also recently launched a new book, Prime Time, and two more exercise DVDs Trim, Tone & Flex, and Firm & Burn, in December. As the only women's health and fitness site nominated in the Webby Awards, we are so excited to be recognized as part of the best of the best on the Internt, but we also realize how lucky we are to have Fonda's support. After all, it's only because of her and other strong, active women like her that we are able to be where we are.
So what are you waiting for? Check out Fonda's official blog to read her thoughts on the fitness industry through the years and then follow her on Twitter to receive updates on her latest event apperances, the causes she supports, and more. And then, of course, go vote and support your favorite fit ladies!
