For Extra Credit, you can freestyle/improvise the moves to any tunes on your Ipod when you're away from your TV. My favorite: the Captain & Tenille's *Love Will Keep Us Together.* My only rules are: I gotta keep movin' through the whole song; and every time she sings "STOP!" I gotta kick the alternate leg up over my head (this maneuver not recommended for those not limber enough to find their own toes. ;-)
* You can work out to *American Pie* but you may not EAT any pie on this plan.

weight again, first thing I thought of was 'Richard Simmon's Sweatin' to the Oldies'.
I'd been in an accident, had 3 spinal surgeries in one yr. and when I was finally
recovered.. I had over 70 lbs. to lose! I did it with these exercise tapes, walking
and modifying my diet a little.
If you've never seen these exercise videos before, they are fun. The music
itself will get you moving and rachet up your spirits. I know listening to these
old rock'n'roll tunes always make me feel better no matter where I am or what
I'm doing. They're great to exercise with. These are low impact aerobic exercise
videos. This set is wonderful. You start with the first one and as you improve
you move on the the second one and so on. I had all his tapes and once I got
into good enough shape, I played a different one each day for variety.
One of the good things about RS's videos is you're not watching thin, sweet young
things in beautiful exercise outfits. You're watching people of all ages, shapes
and sizes in everything from leotards and crop tops to sweats and tees.
If you can't keep up... no problem, do what you can and walk in place for a minute or
two and then try again. If your heart gets to beating too hard, leave some arm movements
out and just move your feet. Little by little you'll be able to do more and more and have
fun doing it.
I had this in the early 90's on VHS and kept looking out for it on DVD. I thought it would never be re-released, but they finally did release it! I was very happy about that. The best part is it is the complete collection. I love the fact that it is all inclusive and friendly to people of all sizes. My teen daughter even likes the workout and says it's a lot of fun. I think even elderly could follow along with small modifications.
I have had all types of workout programs including Wii fit and the dance games for PS2 and 3. I have also tried many other workout, dance, and aerobic dvd's, but this one, "sweatin to the oldies 1" will always be my favorite.
