Jack LaLanne, Dead at 96

September 26, 1914 – January 23, 2011

Fitness Pioneer and Nutrition Guru, Jack LaLanne, passed away on Sunday at the age of 96. What a good, long life he lived! LaLanne was an inspiration to millions of people as a man who not only preached and taught personal fitness through common sense diet and exercise but also completely lived the lifestyle that he espoused. I can recall watching Jack’s exercise programs (on a black and white TV!) when I was in grade school and his name was literally synonymous with the practice of staying fit. He was a motivational speaker before they even existed and wasahead of his tiemin so manyways.  Jack LaLanne is currently shaking his head and tsk-tsking at all the love handles in heaven. Those seraphim are in for a real ass-kicking.

Rest in Peace, Jack.
