Richard Simmons has had the unique ability to deliver a serious message through laughter to millions of Americans via videos, personal appearances, daytime and late night television appearances, infomercials and books.
Because of this, Richard Simmons has become the nation’s most revered fitness expert. Originally, he had a weight problem of his own. Simmons’ success as a fitness expert and advocate led to numerous local and national television and radio appearances, and in the mid- 70’s, Simmons began a four-year run on “General Hospital”. Following that, Simmons hosted “The Richard Simmons Show”, a nationally syndicated, Emmy Award-winning series that ran for four years. After his show, he created two of the best weight loss programs ever, Deal-A-Meal and FoodMover. He has made over 30 weight loss movies and is still continuing to make them. His first was called “Sweatin’ to the Oldies”. His new video “Blast Off the Pounds™”, “Cool Weights”, a Foodmover Cookbook, Blast ‘N Go Vitamins™. As a result of being a collector of one-of-a-kind contemporary dolls (there are over 300 original pieces on display in his Los Angeles home), Simmons has created “Collection of the Masters”, an affordably priced line of limited edition reproductions, and featuring works of art by the very artists Richard collects. Richard Simmons is one of the most recognized weight loss idols in the world.
