Get Motivated: Lighten Up With Richard Simmons

Whether or not you enjoy Richard Simmons, one thing for sure is that he sure is motivating. Sirius Satellite has Richard's weight-loss show, Lighten Up, every Sunday from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. EST on channel 102.

During the show, Richard reads faxes, letters, and emails from people who need a little lift or a little push, and then he calls them directly to give advice, provide a shoulder to cry on, or just make them laugh (which I did). While he can be a little over the top at times, he truly seems to care about the people who call in, who he calls, and those who are listening. If you have Sirius you should definitely check it out and be sure to let us know if you were motivated or not.

Maybe you need a video of Richard in action to jog your memory, and if you do check out this retro video for some extra special motivation.

Where does this man get his excitable energy from? I would love to become as motivated as him to get some exercise.

Love Richard Simmons! He was in D.C. to promote making gym class part of the No Child Left Behind. He was very sweet in person.

Few people show compassion for the morbidly obese as Richard Simmons does. He may not be my style, but anyone who promotes exercise to those who are often treated like they don't even deserve a better, healthier life, deserves respect.
