The person who made Jumping Jacks famous came up with this quote
“Exercise is King, Nutrition is Queen, put them together and you’ve got a kingdom.”
It was Jack Lalanne!
Francois Henri "Jack" LaLanne, deemed the “Godfather of Modern Fitness” believed every human being can attain maximum body health and fitness if they will practice moderation, eat the most natural foods, and exercise on a regular basis. Lalanne inspired millions over the years on national television, radio talk shows and at events and lectures. He opened North American’s first health club, in Oakland in 1936.
Lalanne designed many of the familiar exercise machines, including leg extension machines, Smith Machines and cable-pulley systems. Jack was adamant that women, the elderly and even the disabled should work out to retain strength. He passed away at the age of 96 after a brief bout with pneumonia.
An advocate of proving that anything is possible, Jack LaLanne often accomplished feats of super human strength through his life even into his 80’s. He showed the world that you can achieve anything in incredible ways such as swimming from Alcatraz to shore while having his hands cuffed and feet shackled!
Here are Jack LaLanne’s 20 PRINCIPLES - AS A REGULAR DAILY WAY OF LIFE;
