Santa Monica, California:

Lee Brandon, CSCS stated: "I have to thank Dr. Harry Sneider and wife Sarah for always being there for me through some of my toughest times. They are my mentors, my light, and inspired me with their powerful example.

We all lost a great fitness icon, a friend, JACK LALANNE,"  Lee said, 'However his legacy lives on. We are all blessed to have been blessed by his presence in our life time, and are still honored to have the Sneider's to continually inspire us all!"

ARCADIA WEEKLY: Arcadia Trainer's remember Jack LaLanne



The couple met LaLanne - who appeared in living rooms daily on the nationally syndicated Jack LaLanne show - after Harry wrote him a letter in 1974. Sneider wrote that he was disabled in his right leg - due to a childhood injury - but could squat 490 pounds on his left leg.





















The Sneiders last saw Jack at a Jack LaLanne Juicer promotion. One of the last things that Jack told them, “It’s against my image to get sick or die.” Jack lived to be 96 years of age and helped millions of people to health, wellness, and happiness. He is a lifelong inspiration to the all of us!
