100-Year-Old Woman Celebrates Birthday on Treadmill

I am happy I worked out this morning, because otherwise this story would put me to shame. Ida Wasserman of Sun City Center, FL, celebrated her 100th birthday by starting her day with a treadmill workout. She exercises because she "feels good after exercise." Three years ago, Ida was walking with the help of a walker, and now she walks tall. The treadmill, however, is not Wasserman's favorite workout. She prefers the rowing machine because it reminds her of rowing in Central Park with her husband. Ida's daughter leads her mother through a two-hour workout, seven days a week. Moving around keeps those "centenarian kinks" at bay.

Wasserman has this advice, “I would say keep active, because once you stop being active, you’re no longer much of a person.” To see the real Ida in action, check out this site.

Those sound like words of wisdom to me! Do you plan to work out when you are 100? Tell me in the comments section below.
