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!
