THE LAST MAN STANDING, CIRCA 2006 said and I quote, "I can't afford to die, it will wreck my image."  This fitness icon was teaching Americans how to stay trim decades before other leaders of the pack.

Who is this fitness guru, none other than JACK LaLANE.  A pioneer of fitness and health.  In the 1950s on his TV show, Jack suggested (gasp!) that daily calisthenics rather than girdles would keep housewives trim.

Experts berated him for using weights, fretting that his fans would get unslightly muscles.  "My whole career, doctors and so called experts called me a crackpot and charlatan," he says, 'BUT I WAS RIGHT!"


Where are the Doctors/Experts now...etc.

A sickly child, he...etc.

Named Mr American is 1955...etc.

He made fitness fun...etc.

He practiced what he preached...etc.
