Hasn't missed a workout in 20 years: 95 AND PUMPING IRON.

Never let anyone tell you it’s too late to start working on your body.  Case in point:

Merrill Matzinger – age 95 – does cardio, lifts weights and starts his daily workouts with 1,500 crunches.

“All the doctors that have treated me can’t believe what they’re seeing,” Matzinger said. “That’s encouraging, to go to the doctor and have compliments rather than prescriptions.”

He is also legally blind — but he hasn’t let that slow him down. Matzinger says he only remembers missing one workout in the last 20 years. He’s approaching the centenarian mark and his workout puts youngsters to shame!

Merrill Matzinger: 95 years young.

  1. This man is amazing! I have worked with the senior population for the majority of my life and know that seniors who exercise, eat healthy, socialize, and pursue their passions in life… thrive and live longer. It’s never too late to get fit!

    This “young” man is a shining example. 🙂
