I Love You, Richard Simmons.

I'm going to be completely honest right now and tell you that I love Richard Simmons. I love HIM, his enthusiasm, his total attitude and commitment to WHO HE IS AND WHAT HE IS ABOUT. I love that he wants to help people and HE CARES A LOT. I love that he gets it. You just have to listen to him to know THAT HE GETS IT. Oh my sweet baby condor, I love his outfits. I love them. The tank tops. The leggings. I love it all.


So I have to share this because more than anything in the world, I want to be the person dancing next to him trying to make him smile/boogie down.

Enjoy. But know that in my heart, it hurts me to watch this because I am not the person in red shorts.

Thank you Buzzfeed, for another incredible piece of brilliance.

  1. I thought I was the ONLY one! I adore Richard Simmons. I am that person who bought Sweat Into The Oldies on DVD. Yes, it exists and it's awesome. It's the absolute only workout I enjoy...that is until eating cookies becomes an olympic sport. Can I be the back up dancer when you get invited to dance with Richard? Bet you could get him to move. :)

  3. I love his enthusiasm. I love that someone can be that enthusiastic unapologetically. I wish I could be more like that myself.

    I hope that someday you are that person in red shorts!

  11. Oh my gosh I want to be red shorts person! I bet my preggo belly could get his butt moving! I've seriously been thinking about getting some of his videos for a prenatal workout. Are they hard? I mean I've never actually seen one.

  12. I recommend listening to the Sklarboro Country podcast where the Sklar brothers interview Richard Simmons. Some amazing stories about him being on a soap opera, him running his fitness studio, and others. Inspirational, funny, and moving.
