Jack Lalanne Undergoes Surgery

"The 95-year-old fitness pioneer, who opened his first health club in 1936 at age 21, is recovering from heart valve surgery at his home in Morro Bay, Calif. LaLanne's publicist, Ariel Hankin, said the muscle man who rose to fame in the 1950s with his exercise TV show, underwent the procedure at a Los Angeles hospital on Dec. 8. Hankin also told AP that before surgery, LaLanne told his family that dying would wreck his image. The weightlifting guru is doing fine and expected to make a full recovery."
