Jack LaLanne dies at 96; brought fitness to masses

LOS ANGELES — 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. The fitness fanatic ate well and exercised – and made it his mission to make sure everyone did the same – right up to the end at age 96. LaLanne died Sunday at his home in Morro Bay on California’s central coast. The cause was respiratory failure due to pneumonia.
