The Master of Movement, Richard Simmons, leads kids in creative ways to get them up, moving and having fun.

As the author of nine books, including the New York Times Best Seller, "Never Say Diet," Richard released his autobiography, "Still Hungry-After All These Years" in 1999. He is also the author of three best-selling cookbooks.

Throughout the years, Richard still gets his greatest satisfaction from reaching out and literally touching his students. Recognizing that his audience spans all across America, Simmons averages some 250 days on tour each year. Whether it's a women's expo, a nursing home, a high school, children's hospital, shopping mall or a corporate seminar, Simmons considers himself fortunate to come face to face with hundreds of thousands of people each year. Alarmed by the financial impact of obesity on the workplace, several executive organizations have recently invited Simmons to speak to their members about ways to encourage their workers to lose weight.
