I was and still am a avid General Hospital fan which is where I first was introduced to the Bob Ross hair styled Richard Simmons. He was the exercise instructor at the Campus Disco back in the very early 80s that introduced aerobic dancing to the characters of GH. It was a whole new way of exercising and it was sweeping the nation.
With Sweatin' To The Oldies you basically danced yourself thinner. Richard came up with exercises that anyone could do. Big, small, old and young could dance themselves to a fitter self. The songs were mostly songs that everyone knew. It was mostly low impact and so much fun!
Everyone exercising with Richard was your every day person. There were no leotards or tights, just normal street clothes. It was like a dance party!
When I was younger I had two of these and thought it wasn't enough for me. Now at 51 I have done I love Sweatin' To The Oldies. It is just right for me to get back into the swing of things. I was able to keep up and looked forward to doing it every night the past 2 weeks. Usually I get discouraged because I can't keep up with the routines. This is perfect!
