"This set includes Sweatin To The Oldies 2, Sweatin To The Oldies 3, and Sweat & Shout. I was a little dissapointed that the original Sweatin To The Oldies was not included, but its still a great set. I would have given it five stars if the original Sweatin To The Oldies had been included."

"All of Richard Simmons' workouts are very fun to do. My favorite of these workouts is "Sweat and Shout". I have a bad back and knee trouble so these workouts are great for me. You can adjust the level of intensity according to your fitness level. I find that I can get a great workout no matter how my back or knees feel.
The people in the videos are normal everyday people which is nice too. It's a more realistic environment than some of the other aerobic instructors try to portray.
Richard doesn't do very well with the instructions. He doesn't often give cues for change so you need to do the tapes a few times before you really get the routine down. But once you get them down, it's really fun. The music is great! I would recommend these to anyone.
I always look at the descriptions to find which songs are played but they never tell you. So here is a brief run down.
Sweatin' to the Oldies 2: Fever, Windy, Rescue Me, Locomotion, Respect, Jailhouse Rock, Big Girls Don't Cry, Oh-Pretty Woman, Summer In The City, My Boyfriend's Back, and Breakin' Up Is Hard To Do.
Sweatin' to the Oldies 3: Do You Wanna Dance, Gimme Some Lovin', The Name Game, Out Of Limits, Louie-Louie, Build Me Up Buttercup, California Dreaming, Born To Be Wild, Rockin' Robin, I Get Around.
Sweat & Shout: Shout, Heatwave, Proud Mary, Up The Ladder, Devil With A Blue Dress, Someday We'll Be Together, Mony Mony, The Wanderer, Dance To The Music, Shotgun.
They are not by the original artists, however the singers do a pretty good job with them. I'd also recommend "Disco Sweat"."

"I'M SURE THIS IS A VERY GOOD SET, HOWEVER, THE ORIGINAL "SWEATIN'TO THE OLDIES" IS NOT INCLUDED. I WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT IS WAS NOT PART OF THIS SET. I DID NOT FIND THIS OUT UNTIL I RECEIVED MY ORDER. IT WAS NOT DESCRIBED WELL ON THE AMAZON WEBSITE."

"I'm in the 40+ generation. The music in here is right up this "golden oldies" lover's alley! The workout DVD's are great as well. The first one, Sweatin to the Oldie's 2, has a nice combination of aerobics and light weight/stomach workout. It's a fantastic one to start with. My favorite is the last - Sweat and Shout. After 6 months, I still do this one 3 times a week and still get a good cardiovascular workout. Combined with a sensible eating plan (no fad diet for me), I've lost 55lbs. What's nice about watching this is that you can see how the people who are pretty out of shape do the movements as well as those who are in good shape. You can adjust your movements accordingly. Richard's movements are somewhere in the middle. The only "down" side is that if you are uncoordinated like I am, it takes about 5 or 6 viewings to learn the routine."
