Jack LaLane age 96 Rest In Peace

Monday, January 24, 2011

Mom and I would exercise to Jack LaLane every day after I got home from school. It was such a nice bonding time. He was so energetic and so firm with his convictions. He felt like a good friend. Obviously, his healthy lifestyle contributed to his longevity. My Mom also lived to her 90s.

This is how he looked when I was exercising with him on TV. We will be doing chair squats as soon as he is done counting the reasons they are good for us.

This is how healthy I want to look at 96. He was and still is an inspiration.

    I remember, too, doing exercise with Jack. I thought he was "all mine." lol I contacted him several years ago to thank him and got a nice note back from his rep. I almost bought a signed 8x10 on ebay after that, but decided he's best in my memory and there's lots online. his son has a gym, and believes in the paleo diet, like me. he's the bomb. ;0)

    I have the same comments you do about dear Jack LaLanne! I exercised with him daily when on TV back after each of our 5 children were born to get back in shape! It was sad to read in the newspaper about his death! He lived a good life & was a great inspiration to many people. Anne emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I remember Jack LaLanne well. I often saw him on television and was always inspired by his high energy level. He was one of the first people I ever heard talk about fitness with diet and exercise. He looked very good for his age of 96.
