LOS ANGELES (AP)—Jack LaLanne was prodding Americans to get off their couches and into the gym decades before it was cool. And he was still pumping iron and pushing fruits and vegetables decades past most Americans’ retirement age.

Rest in Peace.  Condolences to his family.

 

I can remember watching his show as a kid.  And I just recently saw his commercial for the juicer.  He was an American Icon.

I've read about this news yesterday. And yes, he did live a long healthy life. Everyone should take his example and live more healthy as well. What a great man he was indeed.
