Very fun interview with Jack and Elaine LaLanne by Dave Bunnell: read it at Meet Fitness Legends Jack and Elaine LaLanne | ELDR.com. See some quotes:
- In 1936, Jack opened AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first health club in Oakland, California, called the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Jack LaLanne Physical Culture Studio.Ã¢â‚¬Â
- Through television shows, public appearances, and booksÃ¢â‚¬â€and by selling health-related productsÃ¢â‚¬â€they have been the most vocal and effective evangelists for preventive health the world has ever known.
- Ã¢â‚¬Å“Elaine works out,Ã¢â‚¬Â Jack replies, Ã¢â‚¬Å“but I work out eight days a week. I spend an hour and a half in the gym, and then a half hour in the pool, and I change my routine every 30 days completely.Ã¢â‚¬Â
- Ã¢â‚¬Å“YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got to go at it hard and work on different muscles,Ã¢â‚¬Â he continues. Ã¢â‚¬Å“You know how you stay young, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t you? You work your butt off. Anything you do in life thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worthwhile, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a price to pay.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Jack recently celebrated his 92nd birthday!
“Everybody knows that exercise is good for your heart, but in recent years we’ve gathered compelling evidence that exercise is also good for your brain,” says Fred Gage, PhD, of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. “We now know that exercise helps generate new brain cells, even in the aging brain.”
