Yesterday was a foggy, grey and chilling day. So, I got on a journey of finding more (and more) about how people back in the day got fit.. and stayed that way. No matter what words I tried to search, I kept coming back to dear Jack.
Hello there, Jack!
World's most inspiring Strongmen.
Ever so famous snap-shot (from YouTube) - Jack is giving one of his speeches
long time before all other "fitness and lifestyle" coaches.
"You have to work at longevity. Exercise is king and nutrition is queen: together, you have a kingdom. My ‘secret’ is that you have to plan for your life. Some older people are now starting to exercise, but there are too many fat people. They spend time watching TV and drinking at the bar, then they say they don’t have time to exercise. People need to get their priorities straight."Another one of his great motivational sentences:
"Life is like planting seeds. Put junk in, junk comes out. Exercise is also essential. Exercise increases your life expectancy and gives you a reason to get up in the morning. With a sound program of physical fitness, everyone can lead healthy and productive lives in their golden years."
What Jack had to say about how my life should be (and yours too, my dear friends):
"Nutrition and exercise should be an important part of everyone’s life. Life should be a happy adventure, and to be happy you need to be healthy. Just take things one step at a time, and remember that everything you do takes energy to achieve. You need to plant the seeds and cultivate them well. Then you will reap the bountiful harvest of health and longevity!"
