Jack LaLanne, The Original Fitness Guru, Has Died

Jack LaLanne, 
The Original Fitness Guru, Has Died

Jack LaLanne has died at the age of 96. For those of you who are wondering how Jack was, he is considered the original fitness guru. He was on TV in the 50′s encouraging people to exercise. He died of respiratory failure from pneumonia.

His wife, Elaine, released this statement:
“I have not only lost my husband and a great American icon, but the best friend and most loving partner anyone could ever hope for,” Elaine LaLanne, LaLanne’s wife of 51 years and a frequent partner in his television appearances, said in a written statement.
You can watch videos of Jack LaLanne here and learn more about him at his website.
My thoughts are with his family.
