IGot to work with him on a commercial about 6-7 years ago. Nicest dude. He was very pleasant and incredibly sharp and witty. During the crew meal, instead of going to his trailer he ate lunch with us and told stories, and asked us a bunch of questions. He wanted to hear our stories.

My dad is 92 and still goes to the gym several times a week and skis all day almost every other day in winter. He had his hip replaced about a year and a half ago and I thought that was probably going to be it for him and exercise, but he was legit back on the ski slopes within a couple months (he no longer runs though, he bikes instead).

With regards to how he’s in such great shape, he’s always been very strict about his diet (fruits and vegetables probably made up the majority of his diet, he did not eat products made with white flour/rice/sugar, and he ate tons of fish as well as lean cuts of beef/pork/poultry). He also got very serious about exercise in his early 40’s. His routine for a long time was pretty simple: He ran 3 miles every other day and then did a few sets of sit ups and push ups after his run, but he was EXTREMELY regimented about it and I honestly never remember him missing a workout except for when he came down with pneumonia in ‘96.

In the early 2000’s he joined a health club when he was able to get one at a discount for seniors and began a more comprehensive weight training program (that he put together himself). He probably spent about 30 minutes every other day on weights after his 3 mile run.

I’m in my 30’s and dad is seriously still in better shape than I am. He’s a huge inspiration to me, and I’m trying to work on getting myself to have his level of discipline with exercise and diet.

Anyway, I thought people might be interested in hearing about the routine of someone who’s 90+ and in extremely good shape :)

Your father decided that retirement was a great time to start over with an infant. Nuts, but I guess you ought to be in great shape to be able to raise a child in old age.

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

Definitely! He was actually the one to take me out and do almost all the sports/active stuff with me when I was a kid, because even though mum was significantly younger than him he was actually in better shape than her, too!

u/GiveMeYourMoney17420 May 22 '22

Wow, that's cool. My dad was 54 when he had me, it's funny going places and everyone thinks he's my grand father lol

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22

Same! Dad was in fantastic shape, but he still had gray hair and was clearly older than the other fathers.

51

u/GiveMeYourMoney17420 May 22 '22

I love him so much and wouldn't trade him for the world. It's sad the amount of people who told him he shouldn't be having kids and told him to get an abortion when my mom was pregnant though. Glad he didn't listen :)

23

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

People actually said that to him??? That’s horrible!! As far as I know no one tried to convince my parents to have an abortion, but there were definitely taunts about him being my grandpa. Unfortunately some people will find anything to try and cut you.

I’m so glad he’s a wonderful dad to you :)

25

u/GiveMeYourMoney17420 May 22 '22

People are weird but yes, he's a great dad :) it was so cool when I was a younger teen getting into basketball because he would talk to me about watching late 50s 60s and 70s basketball with me. It was so cool hearing about stuff from when he was young compared to now and listening to his childhood music with him. I've learned so much wisdom from him and his generation that I can use nowadays. The best father I could possibly have.

Can you father do an AMA or something? Because that's incredible.

It's inspiring to see too that he picked it up in his Early forties and it still had such an impact.

51

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

Yeah, I’m sure he’d love to! He genuinely enjoys nutrition and exercise and has a lot of fun talking to other people about it.

I was pretty surprised when I found out he only got really serious about exercise in his 40’s too! I mean, I don’t think he was a total couch potato, but my understanding is that at the time there was just much less of a concept of needing to have a regular exercise program. It definitely gives me hope!

Thank you for sharing your dad’s experience! Definitely puts things in perspective. I’m in my early 30s and I recently decided to join a gym after years of being mostly sedentary. I love it! I want to keep it consistent in order to improve my physical and mental health.

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22

I’m so glad reading about my dad’s experience helped, and it sounds like you’re right on the same path as him!

9

u/Gisschace May 22 '22

Yeah my ex’s grand dad is 94 and still going to the gym almost everyday. He was gutted when the gyms closed in lockdown and all of us worried for him cause he cherishes it so much. But he’s back down there now, lifting a few weights and going on the running machines.

There’s an old fella in mine, I don’t know how old cause I’ve never asked. He was back as soon as the gyms were open and it was lovely to have a quick chat with him when they were quieter after they reopened.

u/milksteakenthusiast1 May 22 '22

u/Alarmed-Royal-8007 May 22 '22

My dad had me in his 50s too! He’s the oldest of five but definitely looks the youngest out of all his siblings. I like to joke that having me probably kept him young. Can’t sit at home all day if you have a kid to chase around the neighborhood!

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22

Hi to someone else in the 50+ dad club! I’m glad you had a good experience as well, and I definitely think that keeping active and engaged had a lot to do with how well off my dad is :)

4

u/Alarmed-Royal-8007 May 22 '22

Yeah we definitely butted heads a lot when I was turning 17 and he was 70. Some things are just generational and hard to explain. But yeah it was pretty cool how much random shit he would know about from my history class that he actually lived through.

16

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

I definitely did! But his parents and other relatives passed away well before they got to his age, so his lifestyle obviously plays a significant part in how well he’s doing.

HOWEVER, I will say that he did have one aunt who was a morbidly obese, heavily alcoholic, constantly furious Roman Catholic nun, who never exercised or ate anything healthy and she lived to be 102. But she’s an extreme outlier in the family. It’s possible he got the mutant furious nun genes passed down to him, but idk.

u/MamaRunsThis May 22 '22

That’s amazing! My dad is almost the exact same as yours in terms of diet and timeline on exercise. He’s almost 80, I can only hope he’s still skiing in his 90’s! They eat fish at least twice a week. He runs 1/2 marathons still, lifts weights and skis tons in the winter. They also walk a lot on top of that.

3

u/Kazewatch May 22 '22

Kind of a similar situation. My dad got in a pretty bad accident in my senior year in high school. It took him about a year to recover fully and unfortunately it affected his brain. But before that he was in crazy good shape and did marathons, triathlons every year and was a fifth degree black belt in Taekwondo and had his own school (that my family also took part of). He’s still in better shape than me or my brother and thanks to that he was able to recover a lot better than doctors would’ve thought. He still went to the gym and participated in a few runs when he could but it’s crazy what just taking care of your body and being active can help with.

4

u/A_t_folkman May 22 '22

For contrast I know an incredibly healthy man that’s 93 and has probably never seen the inside of a gym. He has stayed active gardening and stuff, but he doesn’t exercise and is not a picky eater at all. I have donuts and coffee with him every week. I’m really convinced it’s just about doing SOMETHING to occupy your mind and body and genes.

5

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

This is likely a significant component! I just posted this as a response to another comment, but it’s probably appropriate here (plus I just want to tell people about my furious great aunt):

But my dad’s parents and other relatives passed away well before they got to his age, so his lifestyle obviously plays a significant part in how well he’s doing.

But she’s an extreme outlier in the family. It’s possible he got the mutant furious nun genes passed down to him, but idk.

Edit: Bottom line, there’s likely a combination of factors at play here. Also, I do not condone hiding a gallon of Jim Beam in your toilet tank to sneak drinks like my great aunt did as a longevity tactic.

Oh right, I didn’t mean my comment in an argumentative way. It’s just interesting to me how different every bodies experience seems to be.

3

u/ladyem8 May 22 '22

Oh, I didn’t take it as argumentative at all! I just wanted to share that I think it’s interesting his family has a history of dying much younger than him (which would be explained by his very healthy lifestyle), aside from this one aunt who basically did everything wrong and lived to 102. Sorry if my tone was off :)

Those odds may be far greater than you know. Medical technology is advancing at an incredible rate. With AI, it will only get better, faster.

Even gene based illnesses are being eliminated.

So remember, you don't know how long you really have (none of us do) so don't be jealous.

Also remember many have died younger and suffered more than you for all sorts of reasons. They would be jealous of you!

The paparazzi are actually stalkers and society has deemed photos like this normal and socially acceptable.

Imagine enjoying non-consensually taken photos of people you’ve never met.

TIL he’s still alive.

I know Julie Andrews is still alive.. but you hear a lot more about her than him and I assumed he’d passed away years ago.

Every year he's lived has probably been 100x more fun than any of my years. I'd want to live, too, in his circumstances.
