Jack LaLanne Hated Exercise!


If you find it hard to feel desirous about exercise, don’t feel bad, so did Jack LaLanne. Who was Jack LaLanne?

Jack was America’s godfather of exercise who starred in the popular The Jack LaLanne Show in the 1960s.
LaLanne died in 2011 at the age of 96.  He looked like 60 when he passed away, and acted like 40.

“I hate it!,” says LaLanne, who was once interviewed on a morning TV news program at the age of 92.

“Do you think I enjoy getting out of a warm bed at 5:00 in the morning? What keeps me going is the benefit.”


LaLanne’s secret is a belief so strong in the need to exercise that motivation overwhelms any resistance. There’s no willpower—it’s automatic.

How to do it: Ask yourself, “What will it cost me if I don’t exercise?” “What is it costing me mentally and physically right now not to exercise?” “How will I feel about myself if I start exercising?” Create as many similar questions, and thoughtful answers, as you can.

Do you feel anxious as a result of this process? If so, it’s working. Now, see if your desire and motivation to exercise doesn’t feel more automatic than before.

Keep your questions and answers handy to reinforce your motivation, and don’t forget to consult with your physician before starting an exercise program.
