"JANE'S REALLY GETTING INTO IT,"
coos a pert young woman who tells me
her name is Shanda. "She's so
enigmatic!"
Shanda has the lithe elegance of a
dancer. She is clear-eyed and blonde-a
California beauty. Her somewhat Gre-
cian tunic, pinkish-grey and emblazoned
with the JANE FONDA'S WORKOUT
logo, gives her the look of a slightly

watching Ms. Fonda herself demonstrate
the aerobic exercise technique to a room
of worshipful women.

I ask Shanda about rates, and she
obligingly dashes off to get me a price
list. Other Workout employees, as well
as other reporters, gather at the window.
One woman tries counting the crowd-
unusually large because Jane is here-
but loses count. Shanda returns with the
price list: $6 per class or $200 for three
months of unlimited sessions with both
daytime and evening classes. It all ob-
