Product Description

Amazon.ca

The third workout video in the Sweatin' to the Oldies series follows the winning format of a lively, beginners' workout with Richard Simmons and a cheerful roomful of enthusiastic friends--many large sized--dancing to blasts from the past with a live band. This time the venue is a theme park, and the music includes get-up- and-dance favorites such as "Gimme Some Lovin'," "Louie, Louie," "Rockin' Robin," "Born to be Wild," "The Name Game," and "Do You Want to Dance?" The choreography is aimed at beginners: simple moves like knee lifts and cha-cha steps, always light intensity and low impact. Besides the motivating music, what makes this and all of the Sweatin' to the Oldies videos special is how much fun everyone on screen is having. You can't help but catch their dancing fever! (36 minutes of aerobics plus warm-up, cool down, and stretch, total 58 minutes.) --Joan Price

I like this video. I do it every other day, alternating with STTO 2. I started 3 months ago, as a complete beginner (at 49) at this sort of thing but thought I might prefer this type of exercise over walking (and walking and walking) as part of the program reccomended by my doctor to lower my blood pressure and help reduce the cholesterol count. It wasn't difficult to learn the routines , though there are still parts where I get caught out, but mostly I catch up pretty quickly. A couple of things irritate me about both, they each have one song with a routine that I loathe, mostly because I can't do part of it. In STTO 2 its Jailhouse Rock , the first part is almost impossible for me to do on a carpet, in 3 its The Name Game which has a lot of redundant hand and arm gestures and the whole thing is just a bit silly. Having said that, I get round it by doing my own thing , picking up the routine again when its gets more worthwhile. I think I prefer 3 despite this, its fast and fun and it has certainly helped me to lose (with diet) 33lbs.

I have 2 of the Sweatin' videos and love them both - I now do one or the other 5 or 6 days a week and don't get bored. Amazing, as a person who has always found exercise really hard work. They both contain good low impact routines that do work up a sweat without putting off the beginner. Really fit thin people may not find the Sweatin' series challenging, but there are plenty of other workouts on the market for that group. For people who want to start exercising or who are overweight they are ideal.
Having said that, I think this video quite a bit more challenging than the first two Sweatin to the Oldies videos, and I wouldn't recommend starting off with it if you are a first time excerciser or very overweight. I found it very hard at first even though I had become quite comforatable with the others - although, I did quickly get much fitter and now I really enjoy doing it.
My only gripe is I would like some real toning exercises which would make it a more complete workout. In fact, I think the second video is better in that respect and that's why I'm still doing it.
Thank you Richard Simmons for making everyone feel able to get up and Sweat - irrespective of size or level of fitness. I really like the way everyone is respected, everyone looks so happy and everyone's achievements are applauded on these tapes.

Usually I'm not that incllined to do exercise. In fact I despise it. But I absolutely love this tape! Not only is Richard Simmons and inspiration to all of us that need to lose a few pounds, he really can get his groove thang on! The music is totally contagious and the workout is great. It isn't too hard but it also isn't too easy. You really do get your heart pumping with this tape. Plus you get to sing along with the music. The only ting Richard doesn't explain is the heart rate and what your target should be. Perhaps it is in the other tapes, but if you only own this one, check into what your target heart rate should be. Otherwise start sweatin to the oldies!

I bought this tape on a whim because when i was in HS gym class we used to do this tape. Boy was I in for a suprise when I first did this tape! It is a great workout that really gets your heart pumping. Plus the music is very fun to dance to. Richard Simmons is an inspiration to us all. He knows what it is like to be in a situation where you are at rock bottom, and he brings us out of it. The beat is great, the songs are great and the workout is great. The only problem I found with it was that Richard doesn't explain what the target heart rate is. That is important to you when you are exercising. Otherwise put on your dancing shoes and get to sweating!

This sounds so american pie, but Sweating to The Oldies 3 really did change my life. I lost 30 pounds doing it, and became alot closer to my brother as well. If you saw a picture of me, you'd probably think I was the last person to do a Richard Simmons workout, let alone excersize. I have tried other workouts, but they were all too boring for me. Once I tried this video, I seriously couldn't stop! I was brought up on the oldies, and now listen to goth, punk, techno & ska, but doing this made me feel like a kid again ;o) This probably sounds completely fabricated, but I assure you, its true ;o)

You get a good workout with Richard whether it's in person or on a tape. Beginners and Intermediates will find a lot to love in this tape: great music, fun routines, lots of inspiration. This video has the sexiest moves of any of his tapes, so I'd recommend staying away from it if you're offended by that kind of thing. This one is fun, long, and not as easy as it looks. But there are plenty of people to watch as examples of how to either tone down the routine or jazz it up. The setting is like a carnival, and the routine has as much energy as a carnival ride. Great fun!

This is the first Richard Simmons video I've ever had the pleasure to use but I realy enjoyed it and so I'm buying my own copy. The tape starts with a good fast paced warm up and continues to get more intense as the different "oldies" are played. Then there's a nice cool down. The only thing I would like if Richard would talk more and tell you what was the next exercise. I did flounder a little trying to copy the exercises as they danced them w/o any instructions. I love the fact the dancers are all sizes... Karen END
