Wild Thing

I came across a nice feature and sidebar on Bally founder Don Wildman from the Los Angeles Times. The stories were published last month, but in case you missed these—as I did—enjoy.

The feature is about the 76-year-old's extreme workout routine, which made me feel extremely inadequate after reading it. The sidebar is about how Wildman served in the Korean War before building a fitness empire that would become Bally Total Fitness.

Wildman's peak physical condition made me wonder: Who would win in an MMA match between Wildman and Jack LaLanne?
