Smile Seniors That Inspire

So many people think being old means being weak

*** ***Let's prove them wrong!*** ***

Many know that getting older doesn't mean one has to decline in strength It can be an opportunity to ascend in strength


***Please share videos, stories or anything that you find inspiring***



Here's a video of Jack Lalanne pulling 70 boats with 70 people at age 70 for one mile:

You’re right! She is an impressive 75 year old woman. I hope I will be that fit someday. It truly improves the quality of life. I’m sharing the link to her bio:

Holy Moly! This 72-year-old woman is stronger than probably 99% of 20 year olds.

I don’t know her age, but I find this Pilates instructor very inspiring. She has some clips of her workouts group, her “fairies”, and they do Pilates in the woods.

I also follow this yoga instructor who is my age, 55, I believe. Although not a senior she’s amazing, too.
