    You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

    The man lived what he preached! If only more of us could be like him.

    i also have fond memories of watching my mom exercise with Jack LaLanne in front of the TV! I loved the white German Shepherd he sometimes brought on the show. I remember the cheesy organ music!

    I remember my grandparents watching his show. Watching, mind you, not actually exercising along with him. I remember tham watching that and Bowling For Dollars. They didn't ever bowl either.

    What I also remember about Jack LaLanne was that he didn't think women were exempt from all of this. He wanted them doing the tough stuff right along with the men.

    I remember my mom watching Jack and, on occasion, doing exercises with him. Truly a legend and in his later years, had a body that surpassed many (most) 20 year old men in the USA.

    I remember my grandmother exercising along with him when I was around 7 years old or so, in the early 70s.
    She used to get out a rolling pin (remember those?) and roll it over her legs before the show came on, then she would lay on her stomach, and I had the job of rolling the pin over her back and the back of her legs.
    Gently!
    Of course, I thought it was a bit odd, but then, years and years later, I saw people starting to use foam rollers, and the memories of the rolling pin came back.

    Watch his "teaching" videos on YouTube. Probably ~50 years old, and still excellent information. Truth is timeless. RIP Jack.

    Yep, RIP you legend. I was so excited when his vids were turning up on youtube, I had heard about him in gym circles for years, but to be able to watch it is fantastic. Anyone getting in to bodyweight should watch his fundamentals first.

    I was very sad when I heard he'd died. He's a fond memory going all the way back to childhood. Didn't he tow a boat across San Francisco bay with his teeth or something?
