Jack LaLanne’s Birthday – Anniversary
Sep 26 all-day

Sept 26, 1914. The son of French immigrants, born at San Francisco, CA, was to become Americas fitness guru through his eponymous TV show and wacky stunts. The Jack LaLanne Show went national in 1959, and by the end of its run in the 1980s had 3,000 episodes. LaLanne, who kept a 30-inch waist, popularized the benefits of healthy living with amazing stunts, such as swimming handcuffed from Alcatraz Island to Fisherman’s Wharf while also towing a 1,000-pound boat (at age 60). LaLanne died Jan 23, 2011, at Morro Bay, CA, at age 96.
