Jack LaLanne, a one-time sugar-holic who became a television fitness guru preaching exercise and healthy diet to a generation of American housewives, died on Sunday at age 96, his daughter said.
LaLanne, who became U.S. television fixture in his close-fitting jumpsuit starting in 1959 and came to be regarded as the father of the modern fitness movement, succumbed to pneumonia following a brief illness at his home in Morro Bay, along the California’s central coast.
Here is a man who is a legend. LaLanne in his older age was an inspiration to many to still exercise.
In one of the comments it points out that George Burns lived to be 100 without exercise. I am reminded of the Kellogg’s brothers who exemplified this.
One brother was a fitness guy and the other started the cereal company and both died at the same age.
