I was first introduced to health and exercise when I joined a Jack LaLanne Health Spa at 16 years old. In looking back I really don’t know what made me do that but it did start me on the path to health I have been on every since.
Over the years I would reflect on Jack and his teachings. As I have gotten older I have tried to motivate other people in considering to choose health as an alternative way of living. I had dreams of teaching health in corporations in hopes that people would see that eating well really isn’t that difficult and yet the rewards are great. I even emailed Jack LaLanne last year to see how he inspires others. I was told to just keep on the path.
I was struck, in going to his website at that time, by how he essentially was preaching the same basic nutrition advice 50 years ago that is still true today – eat real food and exercise regularly. Times really haven’t changed in what is healthy for us and yes it does take discipline but is so worth it!
So in honor of Jack and a life filled with the desire to motivate others to live a healthy full life, I salute him. Here are just two videos showing just how amazing he really was…
