Jack LaLanne Day

In celebration of fitness legend Jack LaLanne’s 95th birthday, his grandnephew Chris LaLanne attempted a feat performed by his uncle more than 50 years ago. Chris, 34 challenged Jack’s world record of 1,000 push ups and 1,000 pull ups in one hour and 22 minutes – a feat performed last by Jack on his 45th birthday in 1959.

Chris LaLanne (who is the essential Fire breather) was able to complete 500 of each exercise before his hands were torn to shreds.  Still an amazing accomplishment by itself.  I have no doubt that each of you are able to accomplish 1000 of each, although we only have 1 hour of time for class. We will be doing the same workout but only as a group.  We will pick teams  and discuss strategy in class.  Coach Tiffany and Coach Maxwell will also be holding a “Food as Fuel” seminar after class at 11:30-12:30.  This is a basic class discussing the elements of a Zone diet, a Paleo diet and the fusion of both and how all these components effect your every day performance.
