I received an email today from one of the many health newsletters I subscribe to. The topic of this particular email jumped out at me. It was about Jack LaLanne. Jack LaLanne is a name I hadn’t heard in many years and I remember watching his television show as a child. Most people have heard of Jack LaLanne and some of you may even remember his show. If you know who he is and remember his show, how can you NOT like Jack?
Jack LaLanne, also known as “the godfather of fitness,” was enormously popular from the 1950s to the 1980s, when his TV program “The Jack LaLanne Show” aired (the first-ever devoted to exercise). I ended up spending my evening going through mostly vintage video clips of his show and some recent Talk Show TV appearances which I will share with you in this newletter. Everything he talked about back in the 1950’s and 1960’s is the same basic fundamental information on health, fitness, wellness and self growth that I find myself writing about on a daily basis via my blogs, Tweets and Facebook updates. Jack LaLanne once said, “People don’t die of old age, they die of neglect.” He also said, “Exercise is King, nutrition is Queen, put them together and you’ve got a kingdom.”
Jack LaLanne – The Fountain of Youth
Jack LaLanne was born September 26, 1914. His mind is still razor sharp and he looks like a 50 year old. He is a living testament to something I’ve been saying for a while. Fitness is the Fountain of Youth. If you take care of your temple, your precious human body, it will take care of you and it will show on the outside. It’s as simple as that. The fountain of youth will not be found in a pill, or the latest cream, lotion or potion.
I’m going to share with you some of the videos of Jack LaLanne I had been watching this evening. Enjoy them, learn from them, and be inspired 🙂
