R.I.P Jack LaLanne

If you're under 40 chances are you've never heard of Jack LaLanne. But you can bet your parents and grandparents knew him. LaLanne is the grandfather of America's fitness obsession. He preached healthy eating, rigorous exercise and a mindful life. He died this weekend at the age of 96.

Six years ago NPR's Tom Goldman produced a radio feature on La Lanne that I still use in workshops with station journalists. Worth a listen to mark the passing of a man who touched so many lives.
