P.E. teachers, students, coaches and fitness experts across California honored fitness guru Jack LaLanne Tuesday by doing stretching and calisthenics.

LaLanne died more than a week ago at the age of 96.

Tueday's honor is being called a "moment of movement." People say LaLanne would prefer his fans remember him with exercise rather than a moment of silence. He had a fitness show on ABC7 and encouraged generations of people to exercise daily and promoted weight training.

A memorial service was planned for Tuesday afternoon at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills Memorial Park.
