Does Sweatin to the Oldies by Richard Simmons Really Work?
Fitness guru Richard Simmons claims he is against fad diets where weight is lost only temporarily. Instead, he endorses a healthy, balanced diet, and correct food portions of the major food groups. He also endorses exercise, and his product “Sweatin to the Oldies” is a collection of 5 DVDs of old songs that many will enjoy dancing to and in this way, lose weight. The dances are choreographed to each song. Plus there is his cheerful banter to motivate the user. In due time the user can add weights and alternate videos. The people in the video do not have beautifully sculptured bodies, but are ordinary people, some aging, some overweight, some flabby. There is also a DVD2 version of “Sweatin to the Oldies” that features the Loco Motion, My Boyfriend’s Back, and others.
