81-Year-Old Is King Of The Gym

“Tom Simonds has been working out twice a day, six days a week at 24 Hour Fitness in Livermore since it opened in 1998. ‘Movement is life! You quit using it, pretty soon you can't use it,’ says Simonds. This St. Louis native taught high school in Dublin for 43 years and he's been a fitness fanatic his entire life. He will turn 81 in August. Most guess Simonds is in his 60's and he is an inspiration to everyone in his gym half his age. ‘Tom is a rarity. Everyone looks to him for information and motivation,’ says 24 Hour Fitness Club manager Tony Riccardi.
