Jane Fonda is making another ’80s-style workout video — but this time, she’s encouraging viewers to exercise more than just their physiques.

In the video, posted to Fonda’s Instagram on Monday, the 82-year-old actress leads a Zoom workout with fellow celebrities Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kerry Washington, Amy Schumer, Shaquille O’Neal, Vanessa Hudgens, Ken Jeong and Ashley Benson.

But instead of instructing them to just workout their muscles, Fonda also encourages them to exercise their right to vote.

“Hello, class,” says Fonda, dressed in red and black workout attire. “We’re bringing back the movement. We need you to be in shape for the upcoming race. I need you to be strong. I need you to be laser-focused. I need you to be fully committed to the task at hand. So, let’s get ready to exercise our right to vote.”

As energetic music plays in the background, the celebs show off workout moves while encouraging viewers to vote. 

“Exercise that vote,” Washington, rocking pink leg-warmers, says in between sit-ups.

In another clip, Perry spies on her fiancé, Bloom, performing bicep curls while she munches on a snack.

“Get pumped to vote,” Perry says in another clip, as she appears to use a breast pump. She and Bloom welcomed daughter Daisy in August.

The video ends by encouraging viewers to visit exercisethatvote.org, where they can learn how to register .

“Exercise your glutes,” says Fonda. “Exercise your quads. And most of all, exercise your right to vote.”

This isn’t the first time Fonda has re-created her iconic workout videos to spotlight a cause.

In her TikTok debut in April, the actress urged viewers to do a “workout” for the planet and join her first virtual Fire Drill Friday rally to protest climate change.

“You know what? There are too many workouts happening right now on television and on computers,” she said as the video changes to her in the red coat she’s been wearing to protests. “What I would really like you to do is to workout with me for the planet.”
