>Jack LaLanne, one of the most well known fitness and health gurus, died at his California home on Sunday at the age of 96 due to complications from pneumonia.

In 1951 “The Jack LaLanne Show” aired with the goal of providing fitness and exercise advice to its viewers, and in the end wound up being the longest running exercise program on TV, spanning 34 years. During his life LaLanne published several books and videos, created an electric juicer known as the “Juice Tiger,” and marketed exercise equipment and a range of vitamin supplements.

Most recently he had made multiple appearances on the CNN show Larry King Live where he continued to inspire older generations to live their lives to the fullest through healthy eating and solid exercise routines.

Larry King put out a statement on Sunday after the news broke. “There was no one like Jack LaLanne,” King said. “He would go on forever… a true guru. I guess Charles Atlas from the old comic books would be the predecessor for Jack LaLanne.” He then added, “Elderly people were encouraged by him because he just kept on going.”

The man really was a rock star, performing incredible feats of strength to try and inspire change in others— he once did over a thousand push ups in a little over 20 minutes!

And LaLanne led by example, eating organic raw fruits and vegetables and loading up on vitamins. Plus he was a vegan for many years, saying, “Anything that comes from a cow, I don’t eat,” and it was only in his later life that he occasionally ate egg whites and wild fish.
