"When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years."

That insight is courtesy of Mark Twain who wisely realized how much those who have gone before have to give to those just starting out.

Now, as the Christmas season, a traditional time of giving, is upon us, FOX News pulls together seven extraordinary men and women to share with viewers their secrets to living healthy, fulfilling lives.

How is Jack LaLanne, at age 92, still able to meet a schedule that would leave men half his age panting for air?
