Last year at the IDEA World Fitness Convention Elaine accepted an award to Jack LaLanne who had inspired the world to fitness. At the end of her acceptance speech for Jack out of the blue she said “I may be 85, but I can still do pushups” she proceeded to drop down and do a number of man style pushups. This year at the the IDEA World Fitness Convention, she was asked to do more pushups now at 86, to begin her introduction of Jane Fonda, she did six. Later on as you can see below, she did ten more. Accolades go to Kathy and Peter Davis who are the backbone and spine of IDEA, they are to be congratulated on 30 years of hard work, perseverance and determination to bring this to such a successful 30th anniversary with over 21,000 members and 6,000 people at this last weekend.
