Jack LaLanne Remembered as ‘Perfectionist’

Jack LaLanne Remembered as ‘Perfectionist’

By Carolyn Bolton for The Santa Barbara News Press,  January 25, 2011

Dr. Patricia Bragg, long-time friend of health and fitness pioneer Jack LaLanne, who died on Sunday at his home in Morro Bay at 96, shared fond memories of the legendary man.

“He was a perfectionist,” Dr. Bragg told the News-Press. “You could see it in his body.”

According to Dr. Bragg, one of the greatest motivators behind Mr. LaLanne’s chiseled biceps was her father, renowned health guru Dr. Paul Bragg. At 15, Mr. LaLanne reluctantly attended one of Dr. Bragg’s health lectures and quickly became convinced that “you are what you eat,” and resolved to lead a healthier lifestyle.

“From that point, they became like father and son,” said Dr. Bragg.

Mr. LaLanne’s passion for exercise and lifting weights was a memory quickly recalled as Dr. Bragg recalled time spent with him and her father on Muscle Beach in Santa Monica — a place where Mr. LaLanne would give exercise tips to interested college students.

Mr. LaLanne was also generous with his knowledge of dance and helped teach Dr. Bragg; “I loved dancing with Jack LaLanne,” she said excitedly.

Though saddened by Mr. LaLanne’s death, Dr. Bragg expressed confidence that he and her father are “up there” together “lifting weights.”

Mr. LaLanne began his long-running TV show in dramatic silhouette, a peppy, powerful figure doing jumping jacks while an electric organ pumped out “Camptown Races,” his bouncy theme.

He was introduced as a “world-famous nutritionist, author, lecturer and physical-culture expert on your figure and beauty,” and his goal was to give housewives a break from their cooking and cleaning chores.

“I like to consider myself as your personal physical instructor and your health consultant coming into your home every day,” Mr. LaLanne told the women who made up most of his weekday TV audience.

He was a coach for those women, and more. In the 1950s, when he began his lengthy television run, he gave them a half-hour workout, and a respite: Here was a confidant, virile but safe, who may have understood their wants and hopes better than even their husbands.

While their husbands were away every day making a living, Mr. LaLanne was looking out for these women in a way no one else did.

“Make me a promise,” he began one episode. “C’mon, raise your right hand. Say, ‘I promise that I will be with you every day this week, Jack.’ ‘Cause I have so many fantastic things to show you and tell you, and they’re all to you from me.”

In those days, a daily exercise show was more than pioneering.

Exercise for anyone was seen as an exotic pursuit, largely limited to disgruntled kids in phys-ed classes, members of athletic teams training for team victory and random “exercise nuts.” And few of those categories included women.

Mr. LaLanne’s notion of fitness certainly wasn’t the macho proposition from those ads in comic books: a mail-order course from bodybuilder Charles Atlas that would transform the “97-pound weakling” into a ripped Adonis who could teach the world’s bullies not to kick sand in his face.

Mr. LaLanne found a successful formula for happiness and long life decades before the onset of health spas and healthy lifestyles — a cultural shift for which he paved the way.

Anyone who was watching his TV show a half-century ago heard his mission: to help people feel better, look better and live longer.

Clad in a form-fitting jumpsuit with “Jack” stitched on the left breast, his bulging biceps straining its short sleeves, he coached his in-home flock through a series of what he called “trimnastics,” none of them requiring apparatus beyond a chair or a towel. He was always warm, encouraging and — in the best tradition of a broadcaster — engaging.

He never forgot the kids who might have been parked in front of the TV when his show came on. He greeted them heartily and directed them to go run and grab Mom. Sometimes, before dispatching the kids with “running music” from the off-screen organ, he treated them to a trick by his big white dog, Happy.

On other occasions, Mr. LaLanne did a trick himself, not to grandstand, of course, but to reassure his audience that he was no mere TV personality.

Once, he demonstrated a technique he called the American flag: With both hands gripping a vertical pole a few inches apart, he extended his body horizontally, his arms ramrod-straight. He said no one else could do it. Whether that was true or not, few if any of his dazzled viewers would have argued the point.

Mr. LaLanne was a TV trailblazer, arriving in an era before videocassettes (an innovation that put Jane Fonda’s aerobics everywhere a quarter-century later), and decades before multiplying cable networks opened a maw that needed programming of all kinds, including fitness shows and uncountable fitness gurus, to fill it.

Among the cartoons, game shows and soap operas of his early day, Mr. LaLanne found a pent-up demand for a TV show that promoted health and demanded that the viewer get physical. It was a special kind of appointment viewing.

Did housewives tell their husbands about Jack LaLanne? Or was his show their little secret?

This story includes reporting from the New York Times.

Why do some foods (like beans) give you intestinal gas?

Why do some foods (like beans) give you intestinal gas?

Yet, sometimes flatulence can be the result of a food that is mismatched for our metabolism. Gas resulting from the lactose in cow’s milk would be a good example in this category. Some individuals cannot break down milk sugar (lactose) very effectively because their bodies do not contain sufficient quantities of the enzyme, lactase, which is needed to break down milk sugar.

Santa Barbara Nutritionist Patricia Bragg Remembers Jack LaLanne

“I am deeply saddened to learn of the loss of my lifetime friend and colleague Jack LaLanne.” “I will deeply miss him”.  “At the young age of 15, Jack came to my father’s health lectures in Oakland, California.” “Jack always credited my father, Dr. Paul C. Bragg (health pioneer and  originator of health stores), for saving his life and leading him on his journey to making health and fitness his life’s work and passion.”  “Jack was like a son to my father”.

“As a result the Bragg and LaLanne families became close friends.”  “My dad taught the young Jack LaLanne everything about health.” “Jack became my father’s most dedicated and accomplished student.”  “Dad took great pride in mentoring Jack and seeing his success.” “Jack’s daily exercise television show reached and improved the health of millions.” Jack LaLanne will live forever in history as the  ‘Father of Physical Fitness’ ”.

Two weeks ago, Patricia Bragg visited with Jack LaLanne at his home in Morro Bay.  “We had a great time together,” “we sat on his sofa and talked about how good nutrition and exercise had kept him so healthy all these years!”
