One More Thought on Jack LaLanne…

January 27, 2011 at 8:44 pm 4 comments

As I was speaking with one of my long time clients and friend, I realized that not everyone really knows about all the amazing things that Jack LaLanne brought to the world of health and fitness.  He, my client, still runs about 5 days a week for an hour plus and just celebrated his 68th birthday.  He too is a picture of fitness.

I told him about some of the amazing feats Jack did for his birthdays and he was astounded to learn that at the age of 70, Jack:

  • Handcuffed, shackled and fighting strong winds and currents, towed 70 boats with 70 people from the Queen’s Way Bridge in the Long Beach Harbor to the Queen Mary, 1 ½ miles.

This was just one of many!

In an attempt to inspire you yet again, I am offering you the following video:

To your health and happiness!

    Jack accomplished SO MUCH in his lifetime. You’re right, not a lot of people know about it. I came across this article that has a lot of interesting details about his life and work, you should check it out. He was also quite a character! There’s a video attached to the article of him at the age of 94 (STILL working out!), it cracks me up.
