Farewell, Jack LaLanne

Jack Lalanne was the original fitness guru.

Back when his television show started he was the only one doing anything like this.   This was at a time when the words “ladies” and “exercise” were never used together.   Who would have guessed that it would lead to the massive fitness industry that exists today!  Let’s take a look back at the birth of that industry.

Did you notice how gentle his approach was to this revolutionary idea? And how terribly uncomfortable the workout clothing looked! But Jack LaLanne, with his low key, black and white tv show, introduced the idea of using television to promote fitness, and he aimed the show at women. He was truly ahead of his time!
