Jack LaLanne: Dead at 96

Jack LaLanne, the fitness pioneer, died yesterday afternoon of respiratory failure.  He was known for his television program that ran from the 1950s through the 1970s.  He was a  TV icon, arguably the first fitness advocate the country had ever seen.  He is survived by his wife of 51 years, ironically named Elaine, of all names.
