What you get as a member of the Richard Simmons Clubhouse!
WHAT DO I GET AS A MEMBER?
SIMMONS SPOTLIGHT Every month I write a special column just for my clubhouse members… to tell you what’s happening with me, and what’s happening in the clubhouse. I also tell you about our auditorium for the month. As a member you’ll be able to read the Simmons Spotlight on the first of each and every month.
LIVE CHATS AND AUDITORIUMS You'll get lots of support from me in my chats and auditoriums! Every month, we'll meet in the Clubhouse to discuss how you can live a happy and healthier life! We'll share our joys, our sorrows, our strengths, our weaknesses, our challenges, our successes and, of course, lots of laughter, too! Most Mondays you'll also find me hosting informal chats. Hey, losing weight is serious business, but you know me, you've got to keep your sense of humor with you all the time. We're going to make this job fun!
TRANSCRIPTS Did you miss one of my live chats or auditoriums? Or maybe you just wish you had written down a tip or recipe I gave out during chat! Well, never fear…anytime I hold a live chat, we save the transcript and post it right in the clubhouse so you can go back and read again…or read what you missed. And hey, sometimes it’s fun to look back at those old transcripts too!
CHAT ROOMS Want more? You'll get support from your webbie friends in the chat rooms! Drop in anytime! The chat rooms are open 24 hours a day every day of the week, just like your local 7-Eleven convenience store! Only difference is, instead of junk food up and down the aisles, in my chat rooms, you'll be feasting on friendship. (No extra calories there!)
MESSAGE BOARDS You'll get even more support from your webbie friends on our message boards! Whether you're simply peeking in to read what others have to say, jumping in with a comment or two of your own to someone else's post, or just screaming for help, you'll learn a lot! Plus, you'll have lots of fun! I post on the message boards myself, and it’s always a great way to keep up with what’s going on in the clubhouse, and what’s going on with the other webbies! Members can also upload their photos to our member photo gallery!
WEBBIE AWARDS If you visit my message boards, and read some of the posts, you will notice many of my webbies have little awards on their posts for things like losing a certain number of pounds, hosting a webbie chat, participating in a cyber cruise…oh…lots of things. That’s just another way I have to help you stay motivated and help you remember how important it is to participate. And once you’re a clubhouse member, you can start earning your awards too!
RICHARD GRAMS During the week, I send out little motivational emails to all my clubhouse members. I call them Richard Grams. It’s like a little telegram from me to you to share what I’m thinking about that day, or exciting ideas I’ve heard from other webbies…or just whatever I think might help motivate you. When you become a clubhouse member, I’ll add you to my Richard Gram mailing list. And if you go to “my member details” you’ll even be able to access archived copies of my older Richard Grams.
DAILY MESSAGE ARCHIVES You'll get support from me in my Daily Message Archives! For over 12 years now, I've written my Motivational Daily Messages. They range from stories of inspiring individuals I've met during my travels to practical advice about sticking with your exercise routine. I'll teach you everything from new ways to spice up that old chicken breast, to sometimes sharing stories just to make you smile or even laugh. When you join my clubhouse, you'll have access to every single message I've ever written. And my messages are completely searchable by words or phrases!
DEAR RICHARD ARCHIVES You may have noticed my “Dear Richard” column I post on my home page where I answer questions people have sent to me. Well, did you ever wonder what we do with all those answers I’ve written? Well, they are archived right in my clubhouse! And they are searchable by subject. So, if you’re wondering what I have to say about a certain topic, all my answers are right there for you!
CYBER CRUISES Have you heard about my Cruise to Lose Cruises? I bet you have! We have such a fantastic time, that I just wish everybody could come with me. But, I realize everyone can’t be there. So, I’ve created what I call a Cyber Cruise. Whenever I’m having a Cruise to Lose Cruise, we hold a Cyber Cruise event in the clubhouse the same week. You’ll be able to follow along with what we are doing all week…follow the same program, and also see pictures I send back just for my webbies!
ONLINE FOODMOVER PROGRAM It's so easy to follow my FoodMover program when you join my clubhouse! I've created an online FoodMover just for you! It's never been easier or more fun for you to keep up with your exchanges. With the click of your mouse, you can see exactly which exchanges you've already used and how many you have left for the day!
FOOD EXCHANGE PAGES Did you leave home without your FoodMover booklets? Need to look up a food you aren’t sure about? Well never fear, my food exchange pages are right here in the clubhouse and you can look up your food online!
PRINTABLE FOODSHEETS I'm not done yet. With your Clubhouse membership, if you choose to use my Food Sheets feature, they are printable, portable and oh-so personal...not to mention convenient! They're as easy to carry around with you as your FoodMover. Plus you can put them where they'll do you the most good, like on your refrigerator door or you could make a spot for them in the pantry. That way, they'll always be handy to keep you motivated and in charge of that food! They are also great to use for meal planning!
HEALTHY RECIPES What's that? You say you want low cal, healthy, tasty recipes for you and your family? Help is on the way! You'll get support in the kitchen from Richard’s Recipes! I add new recipes monthly, and now you can easily print them out! Browse through the Recipe Archives! Go ahead and scratch that trip to Barnes & Noble! I'm writing a virtual cookbook for you right here in my Clubhouse! And when you find a recipe you like, you’ll be able to add it to your own personal, online recipe box.
MEAL PLANS As I've already told you, Clubhouse Members have access to hundreds of delicious, FoodMover Friendly Recipes, an online FoodMover, and FoodMover Instructions. That's enough, right? Well, sure it is... but I've still got even more for you! Clubhouse Members also receive new meal plans each and every week based on your own personal calorie level! That's right; you get Weekly Menu Plans that provide 3 meals and 2 snacks every day for 7 days, 52 weeks a year! So, you can choose to plan your own meals… or let us do the planning for you!
SWEATIN’ TIPS and INFO In the Sweatin’ Section of my clubhouse, you’ll have access to information about different types of exercise moves, a perceived exertion chart, and the answers to my Frequently Asked Questions about Sweatin’.
MY PROFILE / WEIGHT TRACKER Need to plan your Weight Loss Journey? Well, as a member of my Clubhouse, just fill out the My Profile page in the My Clubhouse Tools Section, and you'll get a good look at where you are now and guidelines to help you decide exactly where you want to go! You’ll be able to update your weight as you lose, and watch those pounds drop on your Weight Tracker page.
MY JOURNAL As a Clubhouse Member, you will have your very own private online journal in the Clubhouse! You'll never have to worry about anyone else finding it and reading it. No siree, because it's locked, and only you can open it with your clubhouse password! I always tell you to write about what you're eating, how much you're exercising, and how you`re feeling, and now I'm giving you a convenient way to do that.
RICHARDS PICTURES AND HOME VIDEOS You know how much I travel…and I also do lots of things I love right here in Los Angeles…like teaching at Slimmons. Every week, I take a photo of something interesting, and share it with my clubhouse members. Sometimes I also have other photos and videos to share. And where do you think I share them? Right here in my clubhouse!
10% OFF IN MY STORE You know, everybody loves a good bargain. Don't you? Well, As A clubhouse member, everything in our store is always on sale for you, exclusively! That's right, you get 10% OFF each and every purchase you make in my OFFICIAL STORE. Try that at your local mall. Just think, with all the money you could save, why it'll almost be like getting your Clubhouse membership free!
VIP CONTACT FORM Once you join my clubhouse, you’ll have access to a VIP contact form. The VIP form has a place to email me, and also a place to email customer service. When you use this form, we’re able to tell that the email came from one of our members so we can strive to give you the special attention you deserve.
NEWS, TIPS, and MORE Last, but certainly not least is the fact that my clubhouse members are always the first to hear my latest news. Whenever I have news to share, a new event planned, or new tips that I think will help you… my clubhouse members are always some of the first people I share it with. By being an active, participating member of my clubhouse, you can stay “in the know” about everything going on! And you know I will ALWAYS be working on new ideas, and fun new ways to motivate you!
