A Farewell to the Stars We Lost This Year

Dubbed "the father of the biggest health movement in the world" by Dr. Mehmet Oz, LaLanne lived to an inspiring 96 years old. The Californian fitness guru turned to healthy living at 15, opened America's first health club in 1936 and hosted his eponymous exercise TV show for 34 years. Known for his amazing feats of strength, like swimming to Alcatraz while pulling a 1,000-lb. boat, he passed away peacefully on Jan. 23 after developing complications from pneumonia.
