I wanted to drop a quick note and let you know
that a REAL hero of mine has passed away.
Jack Lalanne, fitness pioneer has passed away
at age 96. And he was active right up until
his death. We should all be so lucky.
Jack was a fitness icon and a hero of mine.
At 42 (way back in 1957!) Jack LaLanne cranked out
over 1,000 freaking push-ups in 23 minutes on the
“You Asked For It” television show.
He swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman’s
Wharf in San Francisco — handcuffed, shackled and
towing a boat.
Oh yeah, he was 60 at the time!
“The only way you can hurt the body is not use it,”
LaLanne said. “Inactivity is the killer and, remember,
it’s never too late.”
Jack Lalanne died on Sunday. Yahoo news has a good
And check out the video on the home page of his sit
God Bless you Jack and your family ~
Knowing you, you’re keeping them fit and active up there now too !!
