If you’ve ever had to hustle through an airport, you know that flying can double as a workout - though perhaps not quite as intense a calorie-burner as an in-flight safety video for Air New Zealand shows.
The airline tapped none other than ‘80s exercise guru Richard Simmons to show off all the ways one can be “fit to fly" in just three minutes.
For example, if you need to brace yourself during flight, Simmons’ neon-spandex clad cohorts demonstrate how to do “the duck,” where you sit with “flat feet, elbows outside your thighs, hands on your head and duck on down.” "Amazing Race" host Phil Keoghan is particularly adept at demonstrating "the duck" in a cameo.
Check out more of Keoghan's moves in the video above.
Never get in the brace position during an aircraft accident. Take it from someone who survived AA Flight 1420. To reduce the possibility of injury, slide down in your seat so that your head is below the seatback, place both feet flat on the deck and grab the armrest firmly. Why would you want to put 18Gs on top of your head and neck. If you want to get people's attention to the safety video, put a survivor on the video. I guarantee you get more people paying attention to it. Scrap the "duck"
Simmons is old but still maniges to pork gals here and there....I'm sure he is pumped on viagra.......
say what you will he is still laughing all the way to the bank. and rightly so!!!
Omg I thought this was a joke ... But it for real lolololollol

Head diva is a racist biatch and shouldn't be posting anything. If I find out were you work you will no longer have a job because I will send them all of your triffe comments. But then you probably don't have a job anyway!
Rich seems to be a good guy. But, I have a question. Does he prefer the company of men? Those tiny shorts don't exactly say "hetero".
white folk always in the rich flying videos.
we need more of them black dudes in videos. its always whites.
Kudos to richard! all u northerners have nothing better to do but bash everyone because they are successful. who gives a crap if he has aids or whatever u gotta commend him for what he does for obese people. saving their lives. isnt that is whats most important?
Richard Simmons taught Rihanna how to take a punch. Too bad Oprah tried to eat him.
Sure alot of people think he's goofy and over the top. And alot of people don't like him and poke fun. But the simple truth is that he helps people....and he genuinely cares!
I'm sure the haters will post nasty comments...but I don't care.
Richard saved my life! He has always been there when I needed him....even though he doesn't know my name or that I even exist.
Sweat on Richard!
great comment.........I too get the impression that Richard is a very kind person who loves to help in any way he can.
Those kind of people totally Rock and are so Relevant!
Richard Simmons is one of the kindest and most generous people on the planet and has truly helped seriously heavy people get thin and fit.
Yea but he is Ho~Mo and loves to drink Ho~Mo milk by the gallon.
That was cute!
No matter how "good" this afro king means, it's real hard to take him seriously.
Richard Simmons...I thought he had finally eaten himself to death or died of A.I.D.S.
jezuz, you're mean, disgusting thing!
Go, Richard! What a fun and informative video. Such great shape after all these years.
Head Diva in Charge? In charge of what? In charge of the men's room at the local bus station in Armpit, New Jersey?
To all of you commenting I bet you are all yellow belly yankees! Talking so much crap about this idiot. Workout video..lol.
You must be from NJ or some where up north you stupid yankee. You people are so annoying.
@pvt.fatbody, Superhiro is at work when he is posting and CNN marquee is the only site that's not blocked. Just saying..
lol superhiro you are too much!How do you do it,mushroom stamping your self after being pinksocked.Simmons WOOD be proud of you.
Perhaps if more airlines did videos like this one, at least we'd feel like we were getting a show when we learned emergency procedures for the planes. Go Richard! Still looking good!
Richard Simmons ? OMG he's still alive? I heard a 600 pound woman fell on him during "Sweatin' to the Oldies #32"
GW Snark –
I agree with all who've commented that Richard Simmons is really fit, especially at his age. Kudos to him! However, I will say I laughed at your comment too. Thanks for the morning chuckle.
still trying to figure out how you stay in shape! hovering around your device,day after,after day..just to post first.
He is still in better shape than me though.
I could never get past the fact that Simmons is an extremely out of shape person who makes excercise videos.
Keep in mind, He's about 60 now, so his shape is pretty miraculous and he's been doing this for a whole lot of years now. Gotta give credit where credit is due. His clothes don't show how decent his real shape is. Can't help but love the guy.
iHe's just sad at this point... 60 years old... still wearing the nut shorts.
Jack Lalanne could kick Richard Simmon's butt any day, and twice on Sunday!
@Jeff in NJ – Yeah, too bad Jack Lalane died earlier this year....so if zombie Jack comes back, he could kick anyones butt! Well, except Chuck Norris...no one can kick Chuck Norris' butt.
who you calling a ho?
