Richard Simmons


For more than 35 years, one of America’s most beloved fitness experts has been helping others lose weight, helping men and women lose an estimated 12 million pounds.

He was one of the first people to work closely with the morbidly obese, laying the foundation for shows like “The Biggest Loser” or “Extreme Makeover.” His “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” launched the era of dance aerobics.

Richard explains he how dangerously tried to lose weight as an obese teenager and young man and why he wanted to help others struggling.

Even though he has a reputation as a class clown, Richard very seriously talks about his lifetime struggles and why making a difference in lives around the world is so important to him. He offers his tips to those who are struggling just to make it through every day and their own self-worth.

He also explains why nearly 40 years ago he opened a studio where people of all ages and sizes felt welcomed and encouraged to exercise. Find out why he still teachers there today.
