5.0 out of 5 stars Great when you get the hang of it! March 8, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a lot like Sweat and Shout with Disco music. I was VERY confused when I first tried it. In fact, I was so confused that I didn't even break a sweat because I spent too much time trying to figure out what I was supposed to be doing. The second time I did it, it was a lot better. "Shake Your Booty" is so much fun! My 5 year old son does it with me because he loves that song so much.
There's also 3 high-intensity intervals, which he never did in the "Sweatin' to the Oldies" series. This is supposed to make you burn fat more effectively. I've lost 8 pounds in 3 weeks from doing this every day and I don't have a whole lot more to lose. It's a low-impact, high-intensity workout. You get the same workout without hurting your joints and back.
Great buy!! I'd recommend this to anyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Much tougher than you'd think May 19, 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This routine takes about 50 minutes, and that's 50 minutes of full-on, nonstop exercising. So don't fall into the trap of thinking that this is a piece of cake! It's a serious workout. But it is fun, fun, fun -- the songs are great, the dance steps are NOT difficult after the 2nd or 3rd try (and I'm a pure klutz), and Richard is funny and campy and utterly charming. It's hugely inspiring to see the other dancers, of all imaginable shapes and sizes moving through the routine; I especially loved the ending credits, where each one comes on and shares how much weight they've lost. Very motivating. Try this one, but be prepared, it's not for your light-workout days unless you're very fit. If you're a beginner or intermediate and want to give yourself a push, this is a fun way to do it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! March 21, 2003
By Iziezi
Format:DVD
This is my first Richard Simmons workout. I bought it figuring I'm either gonna love it or hate it. I was pleasantly surprised! There are so many things that I like about this workout! I love the music, all the songs chosen are geared towards positive self-esteem and self-acceptance. Richard Simmons is friendly and encouraging, not overly-enthusiastic as I would have expected. I liked that people of all sizes were working out, and everyone had wonderful energy! There are a lot of toning moves mixed in with the aerobics, which I wasn't expecting at all, such as plies for your legs and fly aways (I think that's what they're called) for your arms. Granted this workout isn't designed to give you a beach body, but it will give you basic muscle tone and improve your aerobic stamina. All the moves are low-impact, but can easily be adjusted to higher impact for those who are in better shape. This workout is a lot of fun and completely enjoyable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a video that makes working out FUN!!! October 30, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is, hands down, THE BEST exercise video purchase I have ever made! Now, I am someone that absolutely loathes to exercise, and have successfully dodged anything that resembled exercise in any form! This is the first video that I have been able to stick with long term without getting completely bored, burned out, or just plain sick of it. For me at least, the combination of Disco music with, basically, dance moves feel like a treat rather than hard, strenuous exercise. It did take a couple days, and putting the video on pause to learn the routines. However, DON'T get frustrated, the learning curve is only a couple days, and once you learn it, it is sooo much fun! I have used the VHS for 2+years and have bought a copy of the DVD because I have worn out my VHS copy! Buy it, you won't regret it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars get up and dance July 16, 2004
Format:DVD
have one month without cigarettes after smoking 41 years and 3 weeks of doing disco sweat...needless to say i couldnt exercise when i smoked.
this is the best of the several simmons tapes ive gotten.the moves are simple to follow and the camera pans on the entire body instead of closeup of faces(which do not help in seeing what steps he's doing) you do sweat and it feels great..
have done these exercises every day for last month.
i especially like richards tapes because he has real looking people there. wish there was older people in this video(like me)
but hey richard and i are of an age.
good workout...BUY THIS VIDEO

5.0 out of 5 stars Great dance workout for beginner/intermediate August 14, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This video is not for you if you don't like dancing, have no rhythym, or have two left feet, but if you DO like dancing, you will probably love this. True, Richard does very little to explain the moves to you, but I think that's a good thing because it means once you do get the hang of the moves, you don't have to sit through explanations as you watch the tape and can just get right in it. Also, the challenge of learning the routines was what got me hooked at first--I'd master one song, then go on to the next, and so on. All it takes is a little practice and repetition and once you've got it, it's lots of fun! None of the routines are too tricky. People of ALL shapes and sizes, including some very heavy people, are dancing away, which is encouraging.

This workout is long (if you do the whole video) and is guaranteed to work up a sweat if you are overweight and out of shape. But it's never so intense that you feel you just can't go on. Also, having the DVD divided into segments means you can choose to do the full video, or just a few of the routines, according to your needs. When I have time I do the whole thing start to finish, but on busier days I can just do 3 or 4 of my favorite routines and get a decent workout. The stretch routine at the very end is soothing and feels GREAT after the workout.

Anyway, I know some criticize this video for not doing enough to explain the moves, but I really don't find this to be a problem--if you like dancing and are coordinated you will catch on and enjoy yourself. I recommend this tape as a great motivational workout for anybody who likes dancing and disco music, and who needs to get fit.
