Never Too Old To Get Fit

“Betty, 85, and Bill, 95, are among the oldest members of the Whitemarsh Island fitness club. For the past eight years, the Talahi Island couple has spent four to six days a week working out there with weights, treadmills and stationary bikes. It's a sight that gives other members a boost, Ewaldsen said. ‘Everyone knows them. Everyone is just in awe.’ Betty says she and her husband are proof that you don't have to be a spandex-wearing muscle man or woman to enjoy a gym membership. he Fishes aren't the only older adults going to the gym these days. Seniors have become the fastest growing segment of the health club population, according to the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA). Memberships among those ages 55 and older increased from 1.5 million in 1987 to 8.5 million in 2006.”
