Jack Lalanne, the Godfather of Fitness, was laid to rest today. Arnold Schwarzenegger was there to attend the funeral service, of course, Arnie’s wife, Maria Shriver was there too. Another fitness icon attended the funeral, and that is Richard Simmons.
Read what they have to say about, Jack, here.
Yep, Jack started it all. He really did. If it wasn’t for him, there would be no YMCA, Planet Fitness or Gold’s Gym. All these fitness guys Jack Lalanne, Schwarzenegger, Stallone, etc. They’ve inspired me to never give up my dream. I’m never giving up on this fitness thing, guys. I’ll be doing this for life too, like Jack.
You just don’t know how badly I want the fit and muscular body. Yeah, I want it very badly. If you want something badly, stay committed to it and you can achieve your dream. Don’t listen to anybody that gets in your way, and keep going. This is about you. Not about other people. If other people laugh at you and treat your bodybuilding dreams in a negative direction, to hell with them. Again, it’s about you.
Anybody can get into fitness. Either lose weight or get ripped. It doesn’t matter what age, what you look like, who you are, etc. This is for everybody. I’m not trying to be a fitness guru, I kind of want to help other local people get fit. So I try my best to give other people advice and things like that. I’m actually thinking about becoming a personal trainer in the future. Not at this point ’cause I need more experience and more knowledge, but becoming a personal trainer is something I would like to do when I get older. I could make good money doing that, training other people locally.
