Elaine LaLanne, known as “The Queen of Fitness” made a commitment to leading a healthy lifestyle, based on the wisdom of her late bodybuilding husband and fitness pioneer, Jack LaLanne. A smoker who was accustomed to eating a diet of fatty, sugar-laden foods, she turned her lifestyle around and joined Jack in effectively changing America’s perception of exercise and nutrition. Her lifetime accomplishments include being a co-host on a popular TV talk show in the 50’s, a professional synchronized swimmer, an author, mother of four and a lecturer. Elaine still actively promotes the benefits of exercise and good nutrition and is also president of BeFit Enterprises (the parent company of the Jack LaLanne brand). Now, at the age of 90, Elaine continues to lecture, run a business, write, golf, swim and exercise daily.
