Jack Lalanne

25 Jan

Today we pay tribute to Jack Lalanne, the founder of modern fitness, and the man who made exercising a national obsession in the States.

He passed away recently at the age of 96.

Lalanne designed the world’s first leg-extension machine, and contributed to many breakthroughs in the fitness world.

Remember this: your body is your slave; it works for you.
