I use lots of exercise tapes, but find myself getting bored with the bland personality of the trainer and the background people after one or two sessions. I tried this video. I had the best time, so I'm getting the whole series! It was so much fun that I didn't even feel that I was working out, but boy did I feel it later one. I highly recommend this to anyone who gets bored with the traditional exercise videos out there. I love Richard's personality. Plus it's nice to see people having fun instead of the "robots" that you tend to see following along in other DVD's. I highly recommend it to anyone who has difficulty staying motivated with exercise videos.

I bought this on the advice of my wife, who is American and has heard of Richard Simmons. (He is not well known here in the UK) and I am so glad I did...it is lively, energetic and most importantly FUN. All the Workout DVDs here are repetitive, monotonous and the people are not 'real'. At least Richard uses some people that have a bit of life and a bit of substance to them!

I have been doing this DVD each day for a week now, and whilst it has taken me this long to co-ordinate the moves, it IS working, and I have started losing again (7lbs) after a 2 month plateau....

The only niggle is, (and the reason it is 4 not 5 star) you don't have any real guidance as to whats coming...you feel as though you are bumbling along, but persevere, it will come to you and everything just 'clicks'! Oh..and if you have ceiling fans you can reach, make sure you don't stand underneath them whilst working out!! (Ouch!)

Maybe watch the DVD through before you workout to it, I fared much better the second time, than I did the first...and now a week later I am doing just as well as the folks in the DVD...

Good Luck with your weight loss program!!

Pro: if you are just starting out i would recomend any of the richard simmons line for a couple of reasons. first of all he has real people in his videos! i personally dont want to see girls in the background that weigh 2.2 lbs and make everything seem so easy. in his videos their are people of all shapes and sizes, so in my mind if they can do it so can i. He also has high energy and the music is great. Con: there are no instuction on the moves before they happen, you will fumble around the first few times as you try and keep up, but you will end up getting it! and i expected a bit more because its a dvd, but there are no extras, just straight workout. if you are just starting out, this is a good one to get, just dont get too frustrated if you cant get the moves down right away.

I bought this dvd because I do like 80's music as well as real people and Richard Simmons personality. I feel Richard put very little into this, he doesn't say much at all, and there are no extras and not many songs! I am sorry to say this Richard, but this was spastic and a waste of money.

This workout is really good, I was able to do it with ease. I tried it the first time and got lost, but the second and third time's were better. The moves are pretty easy once you know what your doing. It's a video that will keep you moving at all times. It made me sweat the first time, and it still does to this day!!! i enjoy it, I hope you do too.

This is a typical Richard Simmons workout program. The dance moves are easy and well choreographed. If you fully participate in the dance, you will be sweating at the end. The only critism I have is that you probably will not catch on to the moves on the first viewing, as he gives no warning about what is coming next. However, that being said, the second time around, all moves seem to come naturally and fall into place.

I started using Richard Simmons videos years ago because I saw people like me, overweight, doing the moves. It was motivating because I figured if they could do it (some bigger than me) then I should be able to as well. I like this video. The music is my era, but if you have never done much cardio, this isn't the place the start. You definitely don't get much instruction, as was stated in another review, and the pace is much quicker than in some of his previous videos. One thing I like about all the Blast Off videos I've seen is that you often feel more like you're dancing than doing aerobics, so it's much more fun, and anything that can make working out fun gets a definite nod from me.

As in his other videos, he hardly cues any of the moves, so you'd have to decide if you're ok with just following along a few times before picking up all the moves. This video is more vigorous then some of his others, I definitly worked up a sweat! I thought it was alot of fun, there were times when I couldn't stop smiling and actually LOL when we do the "fast runs" in Maniac and when we "honk" in Freeway of Love.
If you can stand Richard Simmons, like 80s music and need a workout, this is the one for you!
