Movie Reviews

The purchase that will pay you back for years to come!

"Richard Simmons' charming personality and know-how make Sweatin' to the Oldies a classic of the 80s rage for exercise videos. The music is great, and will appeal to people of every age, and I've enjoyed just listinging to it for inspiration while working around the house.

As an added plus, Sweatin' to the Oldies rates mega-stars as a fabulous family activity that not only entertains, but gets us off the couch for some very real health benefits. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the routines. There's some serious exercise here.

The Complete Collection of Sweatin' to the Oldies is a tremendous value!

This was great fun!!!

"As a busy medical student who spends most of her time in the hospital it is very easy to avoid exercise... By the end of the day I am too tired, or it is too cold outside or (insert many other excuses here). When I decided earlier this year to try harder to exercise I asked myself what would help me stick to it. I knew I did not want to commit to a gym (lack of time and money), I couldn't exercise outside in the winter because frankly it really is too cold. But I could follow videos. So I started looking at some videos. And they were boring. Very, very boring.

Until (while browsing),I saw a small segment on youtube of someone who recorded himself while exercising to 'Sweating to the Oldies'. It just looked like so much fun, and the music was great. So I decided to take a chance and to buy the video.
I am very glad I did. I love the music! Richard Simmons is funny and exciting and I enjoy dancing with the whole group. The video has the following songs:
1. Dancing in the Street
2. Beyond the Sea
3. On Broadway
4. It's My Party
5. Peggy Sue
6. Great Balls of Fire,
7. Wipe Out
8. He's a Rebel
9. Personality
10. Ain't No Mountain High Enough

So, overall this was the perfect video to begin exercising with. It is short, easy, and just pure fun! Richard does not breakdown the movements, but I picked it up pretty fast and didn't feel it was a problem. I loved this video so much that I am planning to buy the whole series and give this video to a friend."
If you only own one exercise video, THIS ONE should be it!

"Think "Aerobics for Dummies." Richard gets you off the couch and inspires you like no one else can. This workout is truly fun. The live band is great, and such a refreshing change from the recorded 'sound-alike' tracks that are so commonplace today. He uses a spectrum of people as cast members, from those who are aerobics teachers to those just 'getting started.' The routines are easy to follow, and not too strenuous for those who are trying to lose weight and get into shape.

The routines get progressively difficult through the series (Sweatin' 1, 2, 3, 4), so buy the whole set. It's a great price, and will provide with you with that jump start to fitness!"
Affordable exercise thats alot of fun...

"Everyone laughed at me when I told them I was purchasing these DVDs... Now everyone is doing the exercises with me, including my husband who is a bit of a "REDNECK" and made the most fun of the thought of me getting them and of course Richard Simmons...
But, no one is laughing now... My hole family has been doing these exercises for almost a month and we love them. You really do alot of sweating... For the price and the convenience that you have to be able to do them at home on your own time this is a good deal. I have seen other offers but you only get 2 or 3 DVDs for the same price."
