American fitness guru Jack LaLanne died Sunday afternoon at his home in Morro Bay, California, according to his long-time agent, Rick Hersh. He was 96.
The cause, said Hersh, was respiratory failure due to pneumonia. LaLanne had been ill for the past week. His wife, Elaine, was at his side, along with his family and friends, Hersh said. No funeral arrangements were announced, but his agent said plans were being made.

I was legitimately shocked when I saw the headline on Yahoo! Sports that he had died. Even at age 96, because I figured if anyone would live to 120, it'd be him. I think I even said, when I saw the news, "Oh, he really DID die!" lol!

RIP Jack!!!! You were the man!!!

Forgive me, but this is one of those deaths in the news where my first reaction is: Jack LaLanne just died?!

I remember being 4 years old and watching him with my nana in the 1960s. Amazing guy.

R.I.P. Jack

I adored this man since I was a little girl.
I am shocked even though I know he was elderly.

You gave me many good times Jack.

Cheers to you

The pallbearers should honor him by carrying the casket in their teeth. :crazy:
