A hero for the ages

“Regular exercise is the king, a good diet is the queen, and together they make a kingdom”

Jack LaLanne

Jack was a pioneer and worldwide fitness spokesman long before Arnold Schwarzenegger (who also was an inspiration to me during my teens) ever became a household name. I remember as a young child watching him on black and white TV doing exercises from a living room stage setting. He inspired me to be just like him – fit mentally and physically, be a good person, have a happy family and marriage and live with a positive outlook on life. He was my hero at six years of age and always will be as long as I live. I hope to live as long as he did (99 years) and have a happy marriage as he had with his 2nd wife Elaine. He spent 80 years encouraging others around the world to get fit. People like Jack LaLanne should live forever so they can continue inspiring people throughout the ages. He was an incredible human being whom I will always admire. Long live Jack LaLanne !!
