“Something else that worries me is the advertising on television today. It’s killing Americans, and we have to do something about it. Just watch TV for an hour and you’ll see people —especially athletes—selling their souls for millions of dollars to endorse the very items making people fat and unhealthy—cakes, pies and soda pop.”
When Jack LaLanne opened the nation’s first health club in 1936, people thought he was nuts. When he went on the air 1951 with the nation’s first fitness television show, people thought it wouldn’t last. Today, at the ripe young age of 89, his TV show is still on the air, he is in better shape than most Americans and he is still going strong. In this exclusive WELCOA Interview, fitness pioneer Jack LaLanne talks with WELCOA President David Hunnicutt, PhD about LaLanne’s lifetime of fitness and what it’s going to take for Americans to get and stay healthy through their golden years.
