Editorial Reviews:
Richard Simmons is the king of motivational exercise, especially if you're a beginner. This video workout is a dance party simulating a class reunion, with an energizing live band playing lively hits from the '50s and '60s, such as "It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To," "Great Balls of Fire," and "Dancing in the Streets." The singers and musicians sometimes come offstage and dance with the exercisers, adding to the energy and festivity. The choreography is very simple, low impact, light intensity, and appropriate for beginners and overweight exercisers. (You may not get your heart rate up if you're very fit, although you'll enjoy the music.) Richard doesn't do much in the way of cueing--he assumes you'll just follow along. His onscreen class has women and men of all body shapes and sizes, and everyone is having a blast. You will, too. At the end, the exercisers dance down the floor and the screen flashes how many pounds they've lost--several have lost more than 100 pounds. (22 minutes of aerobics, total 43 minutes with warm-up, cool down, and stretch.) --Joan Price

1 out of 5 stars workout?   May 12, 2006

I thought Richard Simmons would offer a good energetic workout. I would recomend this product to the elderly or people with physical conditions, I on the other hand got more of a workout walking to the mailbox to get this tape. I stood in front of the tv for about 15 min's waiting for them to start the actual workout I then started fast forwarding looking for the workout. I never found it. I then took the tape out and put another one in. If you are looking for a good workout I would recommend you look elsewhere. Sorry Richard.

First of all I would just like to say that I love Richard Simmons and his tapes have made me happier than any other workout tape I have ever used. I am 16 years old, and when I was little, about 3 or 4, my mom bought Richard Simmons: Sweatin' to the Oldies, her and her friends would excercise to it and bring their daughters along and we would dance and just have a good time to the music. Now, they haven't done that in years, well, probobly about 12 years actually, and I, being the naive teenager I was, would make fun of my mom for having done Richard Simmons because it seemed so lame. But then a couple years ago, in secret, because I would have been devistated to like, have my older brother and his friends come down and see me doing Richard Simmons, I put in Richard Simmons and excerised with him. And I actually really liked it! I loved the cheesy dance moves and watching the people on the tape sing along to the music! It makes you feel so good about yourself and (suprisingly) did not make me feel like a loser! It made me feel good. Now if I ever am feeling like I have been lazy all day but it's too rainy or cold to go outside running and I'm too lazy (or it's too late) to go to the gym, I pop in Richard Simmons. It still makes me feel good. At the end of the workout when you cool down he tells you to "Give yourself a hug" and it makes me smile, everytime.

This has to be the ultimate Richard Simmons video. Not only is HE an oldie, but the music is all odies too! Hysterical! A nice change of pace for a real comedy workout.

The music was great and makes you WANT to dance with it. Enjoying the flashback to the oldies as well as dancing with it.

This is not a good tape for younger people or those who have some background exercising and being fit. You just don't get a work out if you are. However, if you're bigger and do have a full range of motion then this is a good starting point.
