It is a sad day in Mudville.  One of my idols, Jack Lalanne, passed away Sunday.  He is credited with inspiring millions to use body weight exercises at home to achieve fitness. His televised jumping routine became so popular that most in the united states now refer to the star jump as a ‘jumping jack.’ Lalanne  also encouraged everyone to eat as many vegetables & fruits as possible, long before chemical-free diets came in vogue. Miss you already, Jack.  

Some great clips of a great man:
