Jack LaLanne

A while back I got on a jag of reading about Jack LaLanne. I've always been fascinated by people who ignored the typical conventions about performance, including about what appropriate performance is for a given chronological age.

In the case of LaLanne, this could be seen as extremely forward-looking for me, since he's sixty years older than I am. Then again, I'm far from the shape he was in at my age, and I'm sure my diet would appal him.
