    RIP Jack LaLanne

    Fitness guru Jack LaLanne, 96, dies at Calif. home



    MORRO BAY, Calif. Fitness guru Jack LaLanne (lah-LAYN'), 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.

    LaLanne credited fitness with transforming his life as a teen, and he worked over the next eight decades to transform others' lives, too. He said, "The only way you can hurt the body is not use it." LaLanne's workout show was a television staple from the 1950s to '70s. He maintained a youthful physique into his 80s.

    I knew that exercise stuff was highly over-rated.

    Was anyone else shocked to learn he was still alive?

    RIP, Jack.

    I never saw it referenced, but I always thought Jack was the inspiration behind the "Mandelbaum" character on Seinfeld.

    When I saw the report of his death last night, I first said I didn't realize he hadn't passed on before now, and then I said something about that Seinfeld episode.
