100 Year Old Doing Pilates(VIDEO)


Last week I went to Pilates class with my amazing 100 year old friend Ruth.Ruth stretches everyday, lifts weights, and attends Pilates class once a week at Center Studio. She told me that she started taking classes in her late 80s. They help her feel strong and healthy and relieve her aches and pains. Ruth says that you are never too old to exercise and stay active. People always comment that they want to be like her when they get older. The key is starting young -- Ruth has been active her whole life. Check out a few seconds of her class weekly Pilates class above.

Just love it, when you share Ruth with us.

Wish this lovely lady, had a blog of her own. Perhaps you could suggest this, to her? Perhaps...? Please...?

Ruth is not only an inspiration in terms of her physical grace and stamina at 100. She is also so beautifully groomed while exercising.

What you are doing is amazing. I get really inspired by the picture, and my fear of being old disappears. Keep up the great job. I wishes your blog the best, and your fantastic pictures!

You should come here, the old ladies in Oslo, our capital is dressing really well.

Best wishes from Norway.
