RIP? I think Madhorse has it right Jack wouldn't want to rest in Peace. Right now his very core is reforming to define the word Awesome.
He made it plain and simple, "eat well and move". No tricks no gimmicks no "Hot abs in 30 days crap"
In 1957, at the age of 43, LaLanne swam the Golden Gate channel while towing a 2,500-pound cabin cruiser. The swift ocean currents turned what should have been a one-mile swim into a 6.5-mile ordeal.
In 1958, when LaLanne was 44, he paddle boarded nonstop from Farallon Islands to the San Francisco shore, a distance of 30 miles. The trip took him 9.5 hours.
In 1974, LaLanne turned 60, but he showed the world that, for him, age was just a number by once again swimming from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman's Wharf. However, this time, he was not only handcuffed but also shackled. Oh, and he towed a 1,000-pound boat.
In 1976, LaLanne commemorated the United States Bicentennial by swimming one mile in Long Beach Harbor. Despite being shackled and handcuffed, he managed to tow 13 boats (one for each of the 13 original colonies) with a total of 76 people.
In 1979, when LaLanne was 65, he towed 65 boats in Lake Ashinoko, near Tokyo, Japan. Yes, he was handcuffed and shackled, but this time, the boats were filled with 6,500 pounds of Louisiana Pacific wood pulp.
