If you need someone to help you lose weight think no further than Richard
Since the 1970s Richard has been very enthusiastically helping people lose
weight whether it is at "Simmons" his weight loss center in Beverly Hills,
California or his famous if not infamous "Sweatin' to the Oldies" workout
Richard also started deal-a-meal and has written 9 books to add to his legacy
as number 3 of the top 5 fitness icons of all time.
Born in 1914 Jack LaLanne has been a fixture on any fitness icon list for the
past 75 years.
First gaining recognition as a successful bodybuilder before bodybuilding
really existed, LaLanne, one of the most fit people in the history of the
universe now at 94 exclaims, "I can't afford to die, it will ruin my image."
After bodybuilding Jack started performing athletic feats. His first
notable feat was swimming the entire length of the Golden Gate Bridge in San
Francisco, underwater, with 140 pounds of equipment, including two air tanks!
Currently Jack LaLanne still works out for 2 hours every single day!
Immigrant - Bodybuilder - Mr. Olympia - Actor - Governor - Icon
Arnold. If you mention the single word to anybody in the world they
will assume you are talking about the man formerly known as "The Austrian Oak,
the Tree that Walks like a man."
Bodybuilding, fitness, movies and the government will never be the same
because of a single man and that man is Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Every late February or early March the Arnold Fitness Weekend (formerly known
as the Arnold Classic) which is a huge fitness expo with a bodybuilding show and
more takes place in honor of the man, the myth, the legend.
Arnold has went from being an Austrian immigrant to the governor of
California and only the future will tell what Mr. Schwarzenegger will do next.
One thing is for sure. Arnold will always be remembered for being a
champion bodybuilder and 7-time Mr. Olympia winner before anything else which
makes Arnold Schwarzenegger #1 of the top 5 Fitness Icons of All Time.
