Widely referred to as "The Godfather of Fitness," Jack Lalanne, America’s fitness, exercise, and nutritional expert, celebrity, lecturer, and motivational speaker will be honored by the Board of Supervisors on the occasion of his 95th birthday. Jack has gained worldwide recognition for his success as a chiropractor and bodybuilder, and for his incredible and prodigious acts of strength and endurance. Through his career, he has won numerous awards including the Horatio Alger Award from the Association of Distinguished Americans, and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Hall of Fame.
The Jack Lalanne Show was the longest running health and fitness show in history, airing from 1951 to 1985. The show began as a local program on San Francisco’s ABC television station KGO-TV and was eventually syndicated on the ABC network throughout the U.S.A. and Canada, and worldwide on the Armed Forces Network.
In addition to the Jack Lalanne Show, he has published numerous books, created countless health and fitness videos, appeared in films, marketed health and exercise equipment and vitamin supplements, and as a singer with Connie Haines.
At 95, he has just released his new book “Live Young Forever - 12 Steps to Health, Fitness and Longevity” that provides an easy-to-follow lifestyle plan.
