(CBS) It was an exercise revolution and an unparalleled convenience: the ability to do aerobics at will from the comfort of your living room.
Lead by actress Jan Fonda, the 1980s was the age of exercise videos. But now many of the people who used them to get in shape are finding that they actually took a toll on their bodies.
Sheila Wares remembers the high impact aerobics well and still keeps a library of titles under her television, although they've all been banned from her VCR thanks to a bad knee.
"It's amazing when you think about your knee and how much it affects so much of everything when it comes to exercise, even with yoga you know," she told The Early Show medical contributor Dr. Emily Senay. "Try and do a downward dog on a knee that won't cooperate.".........."

Not fonda "Hanoi" Jane!
Sue! Let’s get a class action started!
Get John Edwards on the phone!! Whoo Hoo!
What irony! Like sharks in the water, liberals eat their own wounded.
This is one class action I want to be a part of !
I wouldn’t care if they arrested her for bad nails, or jaywalking, or stupidity or just bad breath. Since our great almighty elected officials refused to charge her with treason of which there is no doubt, anything to make this treasonous piece of crap miserable is a good thing and should be a daily occurrence.
F U Jane Fonda.
Seriously there probably is a statute of limitations issue on this.
Divine Desserts. Pardon my gratuitous partisan moment.
Her mouth and politics got a lot of Americans and Vietnamese killed...
You realize that they’re still selling them, right?
I remember, 20 or so years ago, the office manager bragging about how she had purchased all of Fonda’s videos. When I reminded her that, just like Leni Reifenstahl’s efforts on behalf of the Nazis, Miss Fonda had gotten a lot of Americans and Vietnamese killed, she responded wiht a “tuh”. Serves her right if she now has arthritis; the wheel does have a habit of turning, doesn’t it?
How many therapies don't work for everyone? How many drugs have adverse side effects, some very serious? But, what the Hell, why bother? Leave couch potatoes to their wretched fate.
Just noticed this. Brings back fond memories of youth.
Since it’s been 25 years since she started selling videos, that makes all those people 25 years older. If you wait long enough, all of the people who bought her video will have arthritis.
Not me. I preferred watching Raquel Welch doing yoga in the 1980s.

If you wait long enough, they’ll all be dead. Would that mean she’s guilty of murder? Of course, she’ll likely be dead, too.
Oh my God, it was fantastic. Be like run home from work and pop home that tape and go nuts, said Sheila, a former aerobic enthusiast.
Best 80s workout videos: :20 minute workout with Bess Motta et al.At least they were the most fun to watch ;-)
Arguably what Fonda did was worse then Leni Reifenstahl. The latter made her film about the Nazis in 1934 before they had been at war with anyone and before the 1935 Nuremburg Laws that started the wave of anti-semitism in Germany. And of course Leni was a German citizen working in hir own country for what was then a newly elected goverment. Jane Fonda was an American citizen going to the enemy in a time of war.
