Jane Fonda has always been ahead of her time. From her women’s rights and anti-war advocacy of the ’60s to her groundbreaking workout videos of the ’80s, she isn’t afraid to stir the pot. Now, she’s using social media to help fight climate change.

Her TikTok debut starts out with classic leg lifts but then changes courses: “What I’d really like you to do is to work out with me for the planet,” she says. “There’s a climate crisis that’s a real emergency. So will you join me for the virtual Fire Drill Fridays? The future needs you. I need you.”

She then asks users to text ‘Jane’ to 877-877 for more info on her climate rallies. Sure, it’s a bait and switch, but it’s for a good cause.

Her plea has since inspired people to break out their old Jane Fonda videos. Can’t find yours? Best Buy is selling these DVDs for $10 each: Jane Fonda’s Original Workout, Jane Fonda’s New Workout, Jane Fonda’s Easy Going Workout, and Jane Fonda’s Lean Routine Workout.

And if you need something to wear for your next sweat session, keep scrolling for deals on leggings, tanks, and more (sorry, we passed on the leotards and leg warmers).
