Workout mogul Denise Austin says Richard Simmons is doing just fine in the shadows … and she’s sharing some of their old fitness routines for folks in quarantine.

Denise tells TMZ … her old buddy Richard is doing just fine these days, even though he’s kept himself out of the public eye for 6 years and counting. Denise says she’s in constant contact with Richard’s managers, and they assure her he’s doing well.

Interestingly, though, she — like most of the world — has NOT seen him in person.

Richard and Denise go way back … and she says their fitness routines from the ’80s will really do people a lot of good during coronavirus lockdown.

As we first reported … Richard is making a comeback of sorts during the pandemic, posting old fitness videos to his YouTube channel, the first activity there in 6 years.

Denise and her daughter, Katie Austin, also have some pretty simple workouts for folks cooped up inside … and you don’t need much other than your limbs and some canned pasta sauce.

Just be careful with that sauce … as Katie says, you don’t want splatter!!!
