Jack LaLanne was real legend in the world of fitness and health. Yesterday, he died at his Morro Bay, California home at the age of 96 from respiratory failure from pneumonia. The beloved fitness guru was mostly a vegetarian except for his advocacy of eating fish. Fish contains important ingredients such as Omega 3 fatty acids that many believe combat age related brain deterioration such as Alzheimer's Disease.
Jack LaLanne was known for amazing feats of physical fitness even at his advanced age and marketed some products such as a juicing machine. LaLanne also had a Doctor Of Chiropractic degree he earned, however he made his career from a 34 year fitness show. LaLanne designed many of popular fitness machines in use today, and Bally eventually licensed his 200 Jack LaLanne European Health Spas as their own.
He was an incredibly nice man, and was a real inspiration to all who aspire to good health. Living to the age in 96 in very good health for most of his life except for a heart valve surgery in 2009 at the age of 95 is a pretty testament to the power of his healthy living.
The world has lost a living legend.
