This is my favorite workout tape. I wish Richard would put it out in DVD format.
I took it slow until I could A. master all of the steps and B. make it through the entire tape. I lost 10 pounds in about 6 weeks using this tape 6 days a week. Note: If you aren't a Simmons fan you might not enjoy this workout - he isn't for everyone - but those of us who love him get the results we're looking for!
This tape is my favorite exercise video! I used it for 4-5 times a week for about a year before it became too easy for me. I lost 11 pounds doing this tape. It is really encouraging to see the "real" people and know that if they can do it, so can I.
Richard is great! He is very motivating and encouraging. His voice can get annoying after awhile, but overall I don't mind. He is funny and keeps me motivated.
I did not like this video. Actually, I turned it off after about 20 minutes and turned to my regular video, Tony Little. Richard Simmons could learn a few things from him, like letting you know when to change and what to do next. I was very disappointed, after all the hype, I expected this to be totally different.
My advice, go out and get Tony Little!
He is very irritating. I don't see what people find so motivational about him. It would be nice of him to actually teach you a move before he goes off and starts doing, so that you are left wondering what is going on.
