Fitness Runs In The Family

Fitness runs in the family! Our founder Greg Hind’s sister Leslie celebrates a lifetime of fitness with the below “Falling Off” photo from 1958 and and its tribute photo 2018.

The moment was captured in 1954 when Harry and Diana Hind hired Clarence Maki to take photos of their two children Greg and Leslie surfing in Hawaii to send home at Christmas time. The one of Leslie falling off appeared in four magazines and three books.

Thank you Leslie for your dedication to a lifetime of fitness (and obviously fun!) and inspiring others to do the same.
