Lightyear Entertainment, in partnership with Fonda Inc., has announced the release of two of the best-selling fitness videos of all time on DVD and digital Dec. 18 — Lean Routine and Lower Body Solution — starring workout video pioneer Jane Fonda.

Lean Routine and Lower Body Solution are two of the programs that fans have most often requested.”
