Richard Simmons makes a comeback

For the first time in six years, reclusive aerobics guru Richard Simmons has made a virtual comeback for his multi-generational 355K followers/subscribers in the age of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Three weeks ago, the 71-year-old flamboyant fitness expert began uploading weekly workout videos from his eighties hey-day as well as more semi-recent clips to encourage fans confined in quarantine.

‘The revival is due to fans clamoring for him to return and lead them through at-home exercise routines again,’ an insider told TMZ on Friday.
