Jack Lalanne: Bodybuilding
I think I can confidently say most if us want to achieve better health in our day to day lives and to do so we need regular motivation to keep our energy levels geared towards living a healthy lifestyle.
If you grew up in the UK then you probably haven’t heard of a 1950’s/60’s television and fitness star from Hollywood called, Jack Lalanne the “Godfather of Fitness”. Didn’t he look amazing from his bodybuilding days as you can see in the picture on the right?
I recently came across some archive videos of Jack’s television appearances from the black and white TV days. What he has to say in these old videos is still, I feel, highly applicable to all of us in today’s day and age. Jack was a master motivational speaker about taking care of your mind, body and gut in a simple to perform way, everyday.
So in memory of Jack Lalanne who died on 23 January 2011 aged 96 I thought I would share with you some of his keep it simple stupid principles of health, which he talks about in the videos below. I wanted to share these hoping to motivate you to change your health for the better starting right now.
