The first round of products will be ready by the holidays, so you now have something for literally anyone on your list.
Richard Simmons is best known for his encouraging quotes and high-power workout videos from the 80s. He brought a positive outlook and iconic short-shorts to the nostalgic genre of aerobic videos — most of which you can catch on YouTube right now.
