About This Episode
Interview w/ Godfather of Fitness, Jack La Lanne.
Jack La Lanne was born Francois Henri La Lanne on September 26, 1914, in San Francisco, California, the son of French immigrants. Jack admits that as a child he was addicted to sugar and junk foods. He was very troubled and prone to rages. At age 15, he heard Paul Bragg give a talk on health and nutrition.
Bragg's message was very simple but powerful to the troubled boy. Jack decided to focus on his diet and exercise habits. He studied Gray's Anatomy and concentrated on bodybuilding and weightlifting which, in the 1930s, was uncommon.
