This guy was great. Years ahead of his time. I do his face exercises every day.

this is so sad. i love this man. i saw him on tv a lot when i was a kid and then later on the late night infomercials.

this is one man i truly expected to surpass 100 years of age.


i remember one informercial when his wife and the hostess surprised him on his birthday with a carrot bday cake, and he mumbled "ahhh...cant get away from those damned carrots..." under his breath, or something like that it was hilarious.

I go to his nephew's gym. There were camera crews in there earlier looking for sound bites.

The man was a monster well into an age when most of us don't have the strength to curl a potato chip to mouth.

Man, talk about guys who lived their years with vigor: LaLanne and Steve Reeves.

The real shame in all this is that there is no next-generation of people who can realistically talk 'fitness' and 'health' and be credible while still appealing to the masses.

A true pioneer. I just read his list of "10 Greatest Achievements." Also saw the "face exercises" video. Do they work? That's one body part I don't hit!

Oh yes. There are 30 different face exercises of his on Youtube. Take a pic of yourself on day 1 and on day 30 and you'll see a significant difference.
