Watch: 100 Year Old Ruth Doing Pilates and Stretches


Ruth has more energy than most people half her age. At 100 years old she makes it a point to stretch everyday and attend Pilates classes once a week. Ruth told me that even if she doesn't feel like exercising she tells herself, " Just do it" and it always makes her feel better. Ruth looks elegant no matter what she is doing. She says, "I wear lipstick, even when I have to go to the hospital. You never know who you are going to meet." I am honored to be able to spend time with such an amazing woman and hope she can influence all to stay active.

A goddess! What an inspiration. Is there a way to communicate with her how wonderful she has made me feel to see her enduring embrace of life and being active? I hope she lives for another 100 years!

Exercising is a very good method of keeping young and agile in the body and bones...good video.We get inspired seeing these.

I´ve heard we all have about 130 possible years in us, but we destroy ourselves by not taking care of our bodies properly. If anyone can live that long, it would be Ruth! I´ll make sure I stay just as active as she when I get to that stage in my life. What an inspiration!

Everytime I come on your blog, I feel like I am just flicking through the pages of Lula magazine!

Ruth is a dazzling woman. It is amazing for a 100 year old woman to have a very flexible and energetic body like this. She has proven that age is not an impediment to have strong bones and a flexible body as long as there is discipline, determination, and dedication. With a positive mental attitude, even a hundred year old woman like Ruth can gracefully do Pilates.

Winston said...

Ruth, you are absolutely amazing and an absolute inspiration!! If I have half your flexibility at 100 years old I'm going to be one very happy woman. WOW!

Carli Alice said...

Ruth is absolutely a role model and an inspiration to women everywhere. I can only hope that I have as much spunk at her age. Or any age!

This is surely inspiring. I will ask my granny tomorrow, who is 60 years old by the way, to join me in my pilates classes in Vancouver! She might be one of the hottest grannies, too. Hahahahaha!
