Denville, NJ, January 27, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The health and fitness world lost an inspirational icon Jack Lalanne who died at age 96 on January 23, 2011. Jack LaLanne died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia at his home in Morro Bay, California.
“Jack was the pioneer of modern exercise and fitness. He was such an inspiration that I wish everyone, including myself, would do by exercising and eating healthy every day. It’s sad to hear about the passing of such a great man,” said Carey Yang, a fitness expert and personal trainer at Beyond Fitness Solutions, LLC in Denville, Morris County, New Jersey.
Francois Henri "Jack" LaLanne (September 26, 1914 – January 23, 2011) was an American fitness, exercise, nutritional expert, and motivational speaker who had been called “The Godfather of Fitness.”
He published numerous books on fitness and hosted the longest-running fitness television show for 34 years. LaLanne opened the very first health spa in 1936 in Oakland, CA, and has since dedicated his whole life to encouraging people to better themselves through exercise and fitness.
Even the most famous exercise "Jumping Jack" was named after Jack LaLanne. It proves that Jack has such a huge impact on the general population. He's the godfather and the most influential person of modern fitness industry. “Without Jack there wouldn’t have been Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons, Denise Austin, Kathy Kaehler, Jillian Michaels, or Bob Harper,” Yang said.
LaLanne gained recognition for his success as a bodybuilder as well as for his prodigious feats of strength. He was inducted to the California Hall of Fame and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“I remember watching his TV interview when he turned 95 and was promoting his new book back in late 2009,” Yang said. “Jack was just as energetic and passionate about fitness and exercise as he’s ever been. He was doing his signature leg raise while sitting on the studio chair. Jack’s truly amazing!”
Yang said: "Jack is the ultimate role model for lifelong health and fitness. He’s my hero and remained forever in my heart. Jack will be remembered and respected for years to come."
