Review of the Richard Simmons Project HOPE Infomercial Now Online

I have posted a full review of Project HOPE, the latest infomercial from 63-year-old fitness guru Richard Simmons. Read it at:

It has been many years since Richard Simmons has aired a new infomercial and the years have definitely caught up to him. But the most interesting things in the new infomercial are a shirt with a rather suggestive image of a guitar, and three seconds of a song Richard wrote and performs himself.

For those of you whose appetites have been whetted for more songifying from Richard Simmons, check out his audio tribute to the troops.

  • It’s a dozen years since Richard Simmons’ last infomercial? Wow, you’d think most pitchmen wouldn’t want to stay away that long. The first thing I noticed going through the article was, “Wow, he looks old.”

  • Of course he looks older. He is 63 and has had no plastic surgery. With the overwhelming majority of stars opting for plastic surgery,you would think he would be praised, not shamed for being natural. BTW, I purchased the program and it is fantastic. Richard Simmons is a very special person.

  • So what if he’s looking old? I think it’s refreshing. He teaches others to love themselves exactly as they are.

    I will take him any day over plastic Jillian Michaels, whose dangerous moves threw out my otherwise HEALTHY back for three weeks! And I am an avid exerciser.

    Richard has some honesty which is a rare thing. Thanks for helping me decide to go for it and try his product.
