Veteran actress Jane Fonda is set to make a return to fitness instruction - she's filming a workout DVD aimed at older women. The "Barbarella" star recorded and released a series of hit exercise videos throughout the 1980s, and now at the age of 72 she is planning to make a fitness comeback.

And she's determined to encourage elderly people sitting at home to get moving again, insisting, "We will film them in mid-March. Mine will target an audience that has been left out, my age group and the (baby) boomers. I want to get to people who have stopped working out or never did."

And she's hoping the project will be as successful as her first tapes, which were made with very little money: "We had no budget, no hair stylist or make-up artists. We did it all ourselves. I wrote the script on a ski trip in Calgary (Canada) on the floor of my hotel room."
