The Champagne Sisters w/ Richard Simmons @TheWeightSaint!

Richard Simmons has motivated millions of people to lose weight with his eccentric and highly energetic approach to exercise. Overweight as a child and frustrated by fad dieting, Simmons has created a number of aerobics DVDs and written cookbooks to help others lose weight and keep it off. He is a frequent guest on television talk shows and has become a cultural icon. Seriously, who HASN'T heard of Richard Simmons?!

Richard enjoyed a stint on General Hospital & the following year, he launched his own talk show The Richard Simmons Show, which enjoyed four seasons on the air. He decided to concentrate solely on building a fitness empire. He successfully marketed his image to the public, while writing self-help books, creating the "Deal-A-Meal" food maintenance program, and producing the Sweatin' to the Oldies line of exercise videos.

Over the years, Simmons has become a staple on late night television, bringing his irreverent humor and incredible energy to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with David Letterman. With a rigorous touring schedule that includes 250 personal appearances each year, he continues to promote physical well-being to millions of loyal followers.

Simmons established exercise programs for the physically challenged, which he documented in the book Reach for Fitness: A Special Book of Exercises for the Physically Challenged. His other writings range from cookbooks Richard Simmons: Never Say Diet Book and The Richard Simmons' Farewell to Fat Cookbook: Homemade in the U. S. A., to self-help guides Richard Simmons' Never Give Up: Inspirations, Reflections, Stories of Hope, to an autobiography, Still Hungry After All These Years: My Story. He continues to promote health including the support of a bill mandating non-competitive physical education in public schools. He also still teaches classes at his studio SLIMMONS!!!
--> He shares why he does what he does, how helping people all these years makes him feel, who inspires him & his mantra, sings showtunes & puts our hosts on the spot!  He is so deep and his emotions are available instantly. He doesn't hold back and still is making us laugh, cry & be inspired after all these years. His motto: NEVER GIVE UP!
