  1. The perfect workout selfie: The key to this workout is to have your headphones on making it look like you are really concentrating. There are many variations that can make this workout fit you. You can pose by the weight rack for the perfect Snap Chat story, or lay on the floor stretching for an Instagram picture with a great inspiration caption. Once you have completed this workout, all your followers will believe you are a  hard core gym rat.
  2. Gathering equipment workout: This workout is for advanced persons due to the fact that you may actually exert energy moving things from place to place, but once you get the form down it’s very simple. All you have to do it go get equipment, like weights or medicine balls, and take them to where you are working out. Get one set of something like weights and stand around with them while they are simply sitting on the ground.

This exercise really gets the other gym goers thinking that you workout just like them.
  3. Heavy breathing and watch checking exercise: Whats great about this workout is that it allows you to interact with the other gym members. Pick your favorite bench to put your water bottle and phone down on, this can be by the squat racks or over by the dumb bell benches. Then set the weights ups like you would if you were actually going to lift them, now pretend like you have just finished a set! Walk around stretching your legs or arms, breath heavily, check your watch like you are timing yourself between sets, and drink some water while sitting on the bench. The key to this workout is to do this all very slowly, take your time to get the motions down correctly. Once you have them down you can throw in conversation with others! This will help connect you with them and make a much stronger workout.

These are just a few of the workouts Richard Simmons has to offer. Remember to take the workouts slow because they can be difficult to master, and if possible always have a workout partner to help spot you when you try more advanced moves such going in to the weightroom supply closet to looks for new equipment. This 25 step workout plan is essential for making anyone look fit and healthy, so you must complete each step of the process for it to work. Good luck and happy faking it!
