RIP Jack LaLanne

Well, the father of the modern fitness movement has gone to that great gym in the sky. More people coulda/shoulda listened to him. He made 96, and active and healthy all along the way.

"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."

Will hit the gym this afternoon with joy, joy that I can still do the things I did when I was younger.

Michael,thanks for posting this. Jack has been around forever and is the first person to really push the exercising,as far as I know. I can still see my mother in front of our old black and white Kay tv doing her work outs right along with him back in the early 50s.

What an amazing man he was - always larger than life. I think he may well have made a difference in a lot of lives with his years and years and years of exhorting us to live in a more healthy way.

RE: RIP Jack LaLanne

He was such a good example for healthy living and exercise. Mwoods, I watched him on our little old black and white TV too, when I was a kid -- didn't he bring his German shepherd dog to the show?

Two white GSD's. His wife would be on there also at times.

I can remember my Mother, lying on her living room rug, doing exercises with him. He really was ahead of the times in healthful living.
