Jack LaLanne Dies

The Bay Area fitness legend known for bringing exercise to the masses died Sunday.

Jack LaLanne, whose workout show was a television staple from 1951 to 1984, died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia on Sunday. LaLanne, who was 96, became interested in fitness as a teenager, and continued to eat well and exercise every day of his life until his death. LaLanne first became famous for his television show, which used only a chair and a towel as exercise equipment, and went on to found a chain of fitness studios bearing his name. His advice still rings true today: “The only way you can hurt the body is not use it,” LaLanne said. “Inactivity is the killer and, remember, it's never too late.”
