Wapella Man Seen a Likely Successor to Jack LaLanne

One of the champions of American fitness has passed, Francois Henri "Jack" LaLanne died last week at age 96 after a triumphant career as the premier advocate of healthy living and exercise.

LaLanne truly had a storybook career, enjoying success in business, performance as well as being a great example of health and fitness.

So it is with great pride when we see one of our own Wildcats taking the baton from LaLane to continue the quest for American health through fitness. This from the Daily Pantagraph

Jason Karr had an eye on the forecast when he planned his daily trip to the Clinton YMCA. "I wanted to get here before it got bad," said Karr, as he finished his three-mile trek on a treadmill.
With his exercise completed, Karr headed home. "I plan to stay home the rest of the day," he said. "I don't want to get out if I don't have to."
Well put from a fine Wapella Wildcat and modern day champion of the fit life. Take it on Jason, all of Wapella looks forward to your carrying Jack LaLanne style fitness forward. But the question remains, will Karr continue with the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer?
