Dr. Travis Stork And Richard Simmons

As spring comes to an end and temperatures begin to rise, The Doctors wants everyone to GET MOVING this May and kick start better health. Tune-in to the Emmy Award-winning syndicated daytime series on Friday May 25, when the co-hosts welcome fitness guru Richard Simmons to the show and share 13 secrets to get thin by summer!

Simmons rallies the audience with a dose of his signature high-energy aerobic exercises and helps one dangerously overweight audience member find the motivation to get moving and drop his excess pounds.

Here are just a few of the 13 secrets revealed on the show:

· Gym membership not in the budget? Exercise at home using items you already have, including:

§ Tights (stockings) – Work shoulders, biceps and upper back by using tights just like resistance bands.

§ Paper Plate Push Ups – The increased resistance from a paper plate can amp up any workout. Put plates under your hands and do a push-up; slide hands closer together and do another push-up; repeat. Or, place plates under feet and do “mountain climbers” to work triceps and chest muscles.

· Fake a butter allergy! Even the healthiest veggies can be sabotaged by too much butter. If you’re dining out and worried the chef may not honor your request to remove butter, tell the server you have an allergy and save yourself from unnecessary saturated fats.

· Text a buddy! Instead of keeping a food diary, try the “text accountability system” and text a friend what you eat each day. A friend may be able to better help maintain perspective on your diet.

· Ditch the mundane treadmill workouts. Challenge yourself with a water resistance course – Co-host Dr. Jim Sears shows viewers how an H20 boot camp can burn up to 600 calories/hour without the joint pain some experience in a regular workout.
