Jack LaLanne's Legacy Lives On in Documentary

Jack LaLanne's Legacy Lives On in Documentary

Jack LaLanne would have turned 100 on Friday, and only because we wanted him to live forever, it's still hard to believe he's not around anymore.

With the anniversary of his birth fast approaching, anyone who met or knew or admired Jack LaLanne should no doubt look forward to a new documentary on his life.

The documentary, titled "Anything Is Possible: The Man, the Movement and the Legacy," includes interviews with none other than the love of his life, Elaine LaLanne, their son, Jon, and famous fitness personalities, including Denise Austin, Lou Ferrigno and Gunnar Peterson.

If this trailer doesn't give you chills up and down your spine, then you're probably not alive. Here are just a few of the great lines you can expect to see in the documentary:

"My dad was Superman," Jon LaLanne says. "He really was."

"He had a wonderful sense of humor," Elaine says. "He made me laugh through life."

"Jack gave," Ferrigno says. "He never just said, 'Let me take from you.' He gave to you."

The documentary will be available from Thursday through Oct. 10 at For Twitter followers, the hashtag is easy to remember: #JackLaLanne100.

Jack LaLanne may not be with us, but as this film suggests, his legacy will live on forever.
