But to further prove there really is no excuse that age is a limiting factor, you only need to watch this video of 87-year-old Bob.

The post adds, “[Bob’s] doctor told him to exercise and referred him to CFEA for this class. He called and showed up and has faithfully come three times a week, putting in the work.”
