Dick Simmons

Radiation Level:  Sweaty

Listening To:  Wichita Lineman by Glen Campbell

KodakGirl came out to LA for her birthday and it was a gift for all her friends.  During a fabulous evening at Ugo wine bar in Culver City that included three four cheese pizzas with truffle honey, KodakGirl says, “Hey, I’m going to sweat to the oldies with Richard Simmons on Saturday.”  I gasped and replied, “Oh my god, I have to come!”

Saturday morning, I met her at Slimmons, his studio in Beverly Hills.



I was told to get there early because the class fills up.  The cost of the class was a mere $12.  That’s is.  This really impressed me because in Beverly Hills, people pay upwards of $22 for a barre or spin class.  But Richard wants to make sure that everyone has access to exercise. What a great guy.

What workout studio doesn't need a disco ball?

And the studio did fill up.  Must have been at least a hundred people.  Most were older women and young gay guys, which is a perfect mix for exercise. Everyone was there to have fun and get in a good workout.

Well, of course he wears tights.

Richard Simmons is the ultimate entertainer.  He started the class with in a long grey beard and we danced the Hava Nagila.  The next party favorite was the Macarena. Richard donned a tiny sombrero and mustache.  In fact, he had numerous hats and personas he changed into.  And he cracked jokes, flirted with the boys and made the pain of exercise melt away.

After an hour of Can-Can, Charleston, the Hustle and you name it, he made us grab weights and work out our upper bodies.  After that, crunches and push ups.  It was a full workout.

Then it was time to celebrate.  There were several gals with birthdays, not just KodakGirl.  He gave them all a necklace and a hug and the entire group sang to them.

It's a tiny, toy Richard!

And then everyone lined up to nab a photo with the dude.

Even FalloutGirl.

Thanks for a great workout.  I’ll be back next week for the Halloween costume party with cash prizes.  Can’t wait!
