Jack LaLanne Dies at 96
Fitness Icon Jack LaLanne has passed away at the age of 96.
Jack was talking fitness long before the "fitness craze" hit the country. Equipment he created is still being used in gyms today. His fitness show, The Jack LaLanne Show, held a national audience for three decades. And the man was a master marketer, creating stunts such as an underwater swim of the Golden Gate Bridge to completing over 1,000 push-ups in just over 20 minutes.
We should all hope to be as active and vibrant as Jack was in his nineties!
