Jack LaLanne

I was thrilled a few years back—visiting her Dolphin Club in San Francisco with my friend Anne Hamersky—to run across LaLanne’s name on an old member roster. Very cool old swimming and rowing club on the Bay.

I remember his amazing feats of strength from childhood. Fitness for the masses was still kind of a novel idea.

I love this magazine cover. Posted on Facebook by my friend Linda. “Well...Just happened to be up here on this mountaintop in my muscle-man posing panties. Oh, sure, you can take a picture!” in peace Jack, you can stop exercising now.
