Fitness guru LaLanne celebrates 90th — again

Jack LaLanne keeps going and going, and so do the parties celebrating his 90th birthday.

On Saturday, nearly a month after the fitness guru turned 90, friends gathered to honor him near the Muscle Beach that LaLanne and his bodybuilding colleagues made famous in the 1940s.

LaLanne later became a household name by hosting a television exercise show that ran from 1951-85, and by performing outrageous feats such as towing boats while swimming across Long Beach Harbor handcuffed.

"This was an incredible place," LaLanne said of Muscle Beach. "I was living in San Francisco and would drive all night to get here for the weekend, then perform acrobatic tricks on the beach."
