Richard Simmons

Richard Simmons is a fitness guru and celebrity.
His résumé includes fitness videos (notably his "Sweatin' to the Oldies" series), television shows (including a stint on the American soap opera "General Hospital" in the 1970s), and his own The Richard Simmons Show in the early 1980s. He has written several books, and produced the Deal A Meal and FoodMover weight loss plans. He hosts Cruise to Lose on Carnival Cruise Lines, has made film cameo appearances, and even an exercise album in 1983.
Despite his flamboyant and comedic persona, Simmons does seriously help obese people lose weight. After losing 123 lb (56 kg), he opened an exercise studio, Slimmons, in the 1970s responding to discrimination by exercise studios of the day against the overweight. Slimmons continues to operate on Civic Center Drive in Beverly Hills, California, and Simmons teaches motivational classes and aerobics on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday mornings.
Simmons also teaches other instructors to teach with his method, The Simmons Method. Training is periodically provided at Hoot Camp, which allows AFAA-certified instructors to earn continuing education. Held in Beverly Hills, Hoot Camp is approved by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA). Hoot Camp has also been held in St. Joseph, Missouri.
