"I use lots of exercise tapes, but find myself getting bored with the bland personality of the trainer and the background people after one or two sessions. I tried this video. I had the best time, so I'm getting the whole series! It was so much fun that I didn't even feel that I was working out, but boy did I feel it later one. I highly recommend this to anyone who gets bored with the traditional exercise videos out there. I love Richard's personality. Plus it's nice to see people having fun instead of the "robots" that you tend to see following along in other DVD's. I highly recommend it to anyone who has difficulty staying motivated with exercise videos."

"I bought this dvd because I do like 80's music as well as real people and Richard Simmons personality. I feel Richard put very little into this, he doesn't say much at all, and there are no extras and not many songs! I am sorry to say this Richard, but this was spastic and a waste of money."

"Pro: if you are just starting out i would recomend any of the richard simmons line for a couple of reasons. first of all he has real people in his videos! i personally dont want to see girls in the background that weigh 2.2 lbs and make everything seem so easy. in his videos their are people of all shapes and sizes, so in my mind if they can do it so can i. He also has high energy and the music is great. Con: there are no instuction on the moves before they happen, you will fumble around the first few times as you try and keep up, but you will end up getting it! and i expected a bit more because its a dvd, but there are no extras, just straight workout. if you are just starting out, this is a good one to get, just dont get too frustrated if you cant get the moves down right away."
Great, apart from one small niggle...

"I bought this on the advice of my wife, who is American and has heard of Richard Simmons. (He is not well known here in the UK) and I am so glad I did...it is lively, energetic and most importantly FUN. All the Workout DVDs here are repetitive, monotonous and the people are not 'real'. At least Richard uses some people that have a bit of life and a bit of substance to them!
I have been doing this DVD each day for a week now, and whilst it has taken me this long to co-ordinate the moves, it IS working, and I have started losing again (7lbs) after a 2 month plateau....
The only niggle is, (and the reason it is 4 not 5 star) you don't have any real guidance as to whats coming...you feel as though you are bumbling along, but persevere, it will come to you and everything just 'clicks'! Oh..and if you have ceiling fans you can reach, make sure you don't stand underneath them whilst working out!! (Ouch!)
Maybe watch the DVD through before you workout to it, I fared much better the second time, than I did the first...and now a week later I am doing just as well as the folks in the DVD...
Good Luck with your weight loss program!!"
