Richard Simmons: Sweatin' to the Oldies The Complete Collection 30th Anniversary

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 10/25/17

If you love Richard Simmons, this is a great collection of all of his "Sweatin' With the Oldies" videos and a motivational disk called "Love Yourself and Win." There are also tons of extras, like an interview with Richard, and testimonials and success stories from his students. Also, there's a neat little booklet with photos.

The nice thing about his exercises is that they're very simple. No one of any age, weight or condition should have trouble doing them. Even though these shows are old, they are still very useful if you want to get in shape or lose weight.

The only thing I didn't like about it is that there doesn't seem to be any closed-captioning, or any way to turn it on. Sometimes I had trouble understanding Richard when he spoke. Most of the time, though, he's not saying anything very interesting, since it's mostly him and the others, his students, exercising.

This set would make a great holiday gift!
