jack lalanne died

Fitness guru Jack LaLanne, who for 80 years, ushered Americans into better physical shape, has died at the age of 96 yesterday. He was a pioneer of working out and an icon whose muscular physique and enthusiasm was the landmark for all TV diet experts who followed in his footsteps.

"The Godfather of Fitness" as LaLanne was affectionately called, ate well, exercised and made it his personal mission to make sure everyone else did the same. LaLanne's agent Rick Hersh told the Associated Press that he died Sunday at his Morro Bay home from respiratory failure caused by pneumonia. Elaine LaLanne, who often appeared on television with her husband, said in a statement that "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."

So a sad farewell to the fitness icon who blazed a trail for all fitness regimes that were used by TV fitness programmes that followed him.
