Jack Lalanne

The Man Who Revolutionized Fitness


The legendary fitness guru, motivational speaker, fitness club owner, and founder of the power juicer Jack Lalanne sadly passed away on January 23, 2011, after battling pneumonia. But at ninety-six years of age, there’s no denying that his great love for fitness and nutrition contributed to his very long and well-lived life. Even when he’s past seventy, he was still doing the things he truly loved most.

Lalanne wasn’t born a fitness buff. It was only when he was 15 and after listening to a fitness speech that he discovered how important it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

One of his biggest contributions therefore is encouraging the United States and even the rest of the world to work out. He was one of those who opened the first health club in the country and promoted the use of weights, even if hundreds were against the idea because of their wrong beliefs. He was able to capture the attention of women, who thought that weight building and exercising were only reserved for men.

At home, he demonstrated how ordinary tools such as chairs and brooms can be utilized as fitness machines. This also prompted for the creation of a TV fitness show, one of the pioneers in the industry during those times.

Lalanne, along with his wife, polished their entrepreneurial skills and shared their love for health and fitness by the creation of Jack Lalanne power juicers, which are now considered one of the best brands in the market.

We will remember Jack Lalanne as the juicing guru who inspired lots of people around the world to eat healthy, exercice and especially healthy juicing. Thanks to him we enjoy the health benefits of juicing. Jack Lalannes health lessons will survive.
