Tom was the local heartthrob. He never missed a workout. He spent hours at the gym (where I was working my way through college) lifting weights for his upper body, mostly his biceps. His legs were thin but he said the “curls were for the girls.” He never wanted help, said he “had it all figured it out.” We like to see results for the effort we put into exercising. By golly if we’re going to spend the time, we want to see “muscles.” But keep in mind, muscles are not only on display showing how “fit” you are, they do everything from helping you breathe and walk to digest your food and pump blood throughout your whole body.

My dear friend and longtime LCF resident Linda Golovko treated me to an afternoon at the "theah-tah," specifically the Ahmanson, last weekend. We were mesmerized by a production of "Twelve Angry Men," written by Reginald Rose and made into a 1957 movie hit starring Henry Fonda. The matinee we attended earned a standing ovation. Catch it if you can, it's a fascinating play about the good and bad in all of us I'm a late baby boomer so I caught the Fonda flick during the wee hours on TV some decades later.

Mark Wahlberg stars in Invincible, the true story of 1970s pro-football player Vince Papale. Skeptics and critics threaten Papale's pursuit of an impossible triumph as a no name attempting to make his mark among seasoned football veterans. Like the jeers of Philadelphia Eagle's fanatics tired of watching their coveted team fail, Papale faces equally critical reactions. Invincible describes the power of non-believers and believers in launching Papale from part-time bartender to superstar athlete.

Although spirits were dampened when it turned out the celebrity guest could not make an appearance, the third annual Healthy Kids Day April 28 at the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA did provide some fun and learning opportunities for the more than 200 children who attended it. "I'm sorry I can't make it today to the Y," singer Billy Ray Cyrus said in a personal phone call from his cell phone. According to Y spokesperson Deborah Weirick, Cyrus was unable to show up as scheduled because he got stuck in rehearsals for the TV show, Dancing with the Stars.

Former La Cañadan Dale Lepper is not your typical 58-year-old. Just look at his picture, which recently appeared in Muscle & Fitness magazine, alongside his "Success Story" feature. Lepper's bulging biceps and washboard abs look like they belong on a man half his age, and are a compelling testimony for his personal anti-aging system, which he calls the "Vital Triangle." "In essence, the Vital Triangle states that the categorical imperative for middle-aged people becoming 'metabolically fit' is applying the synergy that is created from practicing resistance training, endurance exercise, and informed dietary intake together as a single entity," Lepper said, adding he has "a passion to be able to hopefully impact a lot of people" by spreading the results of his research wherever he can. It was Lepper's attendance at a high school friend's 50th birthday party in 2001 that set him on the path to transformation from what he calls a "flabby 190 pounds and 19 percent body fat" to his current trim, muscular physique.

Brendon Shoemake grew up playing club baseball with some of the best talent in Southern California. He's seen his teammates commit to play baseball for major universities and even go on to sign with Major League Baseball teams. Shoemake, a La Cañada High senior, joined their ranks March 8, after verbally committing to play baseball for UC Santa Barbara. The Spartans' No. 1 starting pitcher and center fielder started playing club baseball for the So Cal Blast of Diamond Bar when he was 9. He went on to play for the So Cal Sundevils of Chino Hills and continues to compete for the So Cal Bombers, which he joined at the age of 13. "Playing club baseball really changed the way I go about things, including my work ethic," said Shoemake, adding that it was a life-changing experience seeing former teammates like Bryce Harper — the No. 1 pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball draft by the Washington Nationals — go on to play professionally.
