The Most Priceless Treasure ~

Jack LaLanne

Jack LaLanne

Hi Folks,

Over the weekend, was reading some famous quotes by people.

One in particular caught my attention.

It was by a man who made it his life goal to spread the word of the most Priceless Treasure there is.

Can anyone guess to who I’m referring ?

It is none other than my Health Hero, Jack LaLanne.

Going from an ill and weak health youth, to a fit and strong “Young” older man has always been an inspiration. Showing you are Never to old to be active and live life to the fullest.

A part of living to the fullest, is maintaining our body health. Exercise and joint health go hand in hand with this concept.

This month, the American Recall Center has made joint health awareness a focus!

Another reason Jack LaLanne is my Inspiration, is how each year on his birthday he would choose to do a challenge in celebration.

Mind you, it wasn’t your usual challenge of ride a bike for an hour. Some of his challenges included:

FEATS AND HONORS
1954 Age 40: Swam the length of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge underwater with 140 pounds of equipment, including two air tanks… an undisputed world record.

1955 Age 41: Swam, handcuffed, from Alcatraz to Fisherman’s Wharf in
San Francisco, CA.

1956 Age 42: Set a world record of 1,033 pushups in 23 minutes on “You Asked for It, a TV Show with Art Baker.

1975 Age 61: Swam the length of the Golden Gate Bridge, underwater, for a second time handcuffed, shackled and towing a 1,000-pound boat.

1984 Age 70: Handcuffed, shackled and fighting strong winds and currents, towed 70 boats with 70 people from the Queen’s Way Bridge in the Long Beach Harbor to the Queen Mary, 1 ½ miles.

“Getting out of a warm bed at 5 a.m. to go down to my gym in the morning … I could be lazy and sleep late! But when I’m through, I think ‘Jack, congratulations – you did it again!’ And if I’ve got the will-power to do that, everything else is easy by comparison.” Jack LaLanne said.

And this was at an age when most people are complaining of heath related problems.

So find someone that inspires you, motivates you to want to become a Better You !!
