Jack LaLanne, the fitness guru died January 23 at age 96.
Lalanne ate healthy and exercised every day of his life up until the end, his agent said.
His advice is timeless:
- “The only way you can hurt the body is not use it,”
- “Inactivity is the killer and, remember, it’s never too late.”æ
- “I never think of my age, never. I could be 20 or 100. I never think about it, I’m just me.”æ
- Of his fitness regiment he said – “It’s a lifestyle, it’s something you do the rest of your life.”
At 43, he performed more than 1,000 push-ups in 23 minutes on the show “You Asked For It.”
At 60, he swam from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco – handcuffed, shackled and towing a boat.
Ten years later, he performed a similar feat in Long Beach harbor.
Rest well Jack. And for the rest of us let’s heed his advice.
