I thought these were so lame when I was young and in great shape. Now I'm 50 years old and about 80 lbs. overweight and I LOVE these! All the other aerobics dvds work out to a beat. No music, just a beat. How boring! I love the music in these, plus Richard has your arms moving almost the whole time and that bumps up your heart rate tremendously! He usually does 2 songs to warm up, 3 songs to work hard and then 2 songs to slow down. I am so pleased to have rediscoverd these!
Very pleased with entire exercise program. I love Richard Simmons choice of music. Makes me feel like a teen-ager all over again. Using these on a daily basis, hope to loose a few pounds. Would highly recommend this exercise program.
The songs are fun to dance to, they and Richard Simmons motivates you to keep moving, and have fun while you're sweating! I've been waiting a long time for this to come out in dvd, and hope to have time to use it every day. I know this product works to get you in shape, I've used it before in vhs, and wished I had never stopped!
this set is very inspirational for overweight people. Richard Simmons makes you believe that you can do it, and he made his workouts fun and doable
If your budget is $0.00, your seriously out of shape and need to lose weight - this DVD set is the way to go. All the equipment you need is a chair and a small area in front of the tv. You can do a different workout every day. There are no immodestly dressed people on the DVD. He pauses from time to time to take your pulse rate. I have lost 10 pounds by doing the DVDs in the morning before I get dressed. Each DVD is about 30 minutes long.
These DVDs work muscles you didn't even know you had. The repetitive during songs make the moves easy to pick up. I've told everyone to buy this set. It's helped me lose 15 lbs since I've owned them.
Great exercise. I've tried many other video workouts, watching television, tried the exercise balls and stretch bands. Doing three songs is the equivalent of 1/2 hour of exercise. Simmons really gets you going, and the people in the dvd exercising along with Simmons are those who have lost weight with this system. Expect to huff and puff and sweat, just like you should in order to lose weight. It goes by fast and more fun than any other gym.
I have heard about Richard Simmons for years
but I have never seen him in action until I
purchased this product. After I retired I began
to gain weight as a result of less activity. A friend suggested this product. I was a bit skeptical.
Not only is RS a great comedian but a great
leader of low impact arobics. I laughed and I
perspired. I have only been following the
RS routine for just over 1 week and have already lost 3 pounds.
The music is great too.
I loved Richard Simmons in General Hospital. Loved him when he had his own show and I have loved all of his VHS tapes that I have purchased throughout the years and I especially love my new set of DVD's Sweating To The Oldies. He makes exercising fun and makes you laugh and not even think about it, because you are just having a good time losing weight and shaping up at the very same time.
What a great way to sweat off the pounds.... In one week, I have already lost 3 pounds without dieting....
Good luck to others.
I love the videos and the workouts, I had the VHS tapes but recently upgraded to the DVD as I have worn out my VHS tapes. I highly recommend this workout to anyone looking to get into shape.
I used these Richard Simmons exercise videos on VHS about 12 years ago and lost a whopping 90 lbs!!!!!! Now I need to shed some of those I gained back and I've been looking for them in DVD format! Now I know I will meet my New Year's Resolution in the comfort of my home!!! I love the music, it is so upbeat and you don't even realize you are burning calories!!!
I loved this set of Richard Simmons Sweatin to the Oldies. It's fun and gets you to work out without pushing you so much you never want to do it again. I've tried Tae-bo and pilates but I get so tired and overworked so quickly with them, not to mention unable to perform some of the exercises. With the Sweatin to the Oldies I'm able to do all the exercises and have a blast doing it. With the set of 4 you can rotate which video you do so you don't get bored. This is definetly a product worth having.
I have only used the first two so far. It is great for beginners. Great value for the cds. 1 cd is just bonus features or something. Fun Low Impact workout. I use it on easy days alternating with Biggest Loser and Zumba workouts. I prefer Zumba. It is more fun.
This program is better than I thought. I don't know why I didn't buy it years ago.
I really like the Richard Simmons series. If you think about it, this is just like this new Zumba craze that is happening right now. Richard makes exercising fun and all you are doing is dancing and moving just like Zumba.
My mom and I used to workout to Richard Simmons's Sweatin' To The Oldies VHS tapes years ago, when I was just a little girl. I remember we had so much fun. When I found them on DVD, I was totally pumped and knew I just HAD to order them! My mom and I are once again having fun exercising to these videos. :o)
Excellent low impact exercises for my handicap daughter.
I know that "Sweatin to the Oldies" has been around awhile but I had never tried it. Wow, what a work-out!!!! I love it because it is filled with real people like me who do not have perfect figures but are moving, the exercise is challenging but you can keep up and do it, and it makes you sweat!!!! I have been using it for about 2 to 3 weeks and have already lost 15 pounds!!!!
I have a hard time exercising but I love to dance so I am enjoying these videos. They do help you work out without being boring and straining.
