Simmons has not spent as much time of late in the spotlight but a popular podcast was put together called, “Missing Richard Simmons.” Simmons is 68 years old and is reported to be otherwise in good physical shape.

Dan Taberski hosted the popular podcast that sought to look into where Simmons was. He is a filmmaker and friend of Simmons. This prompted the Los Angeles Police Department to perform a welfare check back in March. The detective reported that Simmons was fine. He went on to say Simmons “is just taking some time for himself.” He also described the fitness expert as being funny, nice and articulate and that Simmons is in good shape.
