Jack LaLanne, R. I. P.

Fitness guru Jack LaLanne, 96, dies at Calif. home - "Fitness guru Jack LaLanne, who inspired television viewers to trim down and pump iron decades before exercise became a national obsession, has died at age 96.

His agent Rick Hersh says LaLanne died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia Sunday afternoon at his home in Morro Bay on California’s central coast.

Hersh says Lalanne ate healthy and exercised every day of his life up until the end."

I lieu of a funeral he'll be run through a juicer.

Seriously, I heard him sing at a soccer game and he was pretty good.

Saw him casually by chance a couple of times. He seemed sincere in what he was doing and unpretentious.
