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.

Celebrity Sighting Of The Day: Jack La Lanne!

At about 1:00 PM this afternoon I spotted Veteran Fitness Guru Jack La Lanne (age 93) standing in the street at the corner of Wall and William Streets. La Lanne was doing that “Muscle Man” pose on top of a raised platform for photographers while gripping a copy of his latest book, the title of which I did not stop long enough to read. It was pretty hilarious to see all of these stiff Wall Street types jockeying for position among the Asians tourists and  fans for a chance to snap cellphone pictures of Jack, who looked like he was having a blast.
