When you think of the term "heavy metal," Richard Simmons is the last person to come to mind. However, in a video Simmons posted on Facebook today, the popular and wacky fitness guru donned some Alice Cooper-esque makeup.

The aerobics instructor at Beverly Hills' Richard Simmons Slimmons studio got in his glam-rock gear before a gym class in the video. Maybe instead of Sweatin' to the Oldies, he can make Sweatin' to the Metal soon.
