Lloyd Black from Alabama is a senior citizen, but this elderly man is definitely not content with just staying at home and watching the day go by. He’s one active grandpa and he’s no less than 91 years old!Facebook Source: Facebook
Donning his denim overalls and bringing his energetic self, Lloyd visits the gym regularly and works out just like everyone else, only older. Wait, did I say overalls? Yes, that’s right! He goes to the gym in overalls and he wears this get-up each and every time.
It’s easy to say that he’s the eldest in all the gym patrons, but his energy and smile are as young as everybody else’s.Victor Freitas Source: Victor Freitas
He’s more than 90 decades in this world and he’s still strong enough to outwork others at the gym! He’s one incredible old man that does not feel and look too old at all.Pexels Source: Pexels
But how come a man as aged as Lloyd still prefers to go to the gym? Doesn’t he feel weak or isn’t he too old to work out? As it turns out, his regular visits to the gym started about a year ago, and it’s because of health reasons.
Aging naturally results in weakening of the extremities and reduced mobility. Lloyd was not ready and was not willing to become a sedentary man just because he was aging. He wanted to keep his energy and strength, and so he decided to visit his local Anytime Fitness and started to work out.
It was time to “use it or lose it” as Lloyd says and began to exercise at the gym three times a week! It was a great decision for sure, but what puzzled everyone in the gym was his get-up. He was working out in overalls!Facebook Source: Facebook
Before anyone could know, Lloyd has already captured the attention of the gym staff with his inspiring attitude and unique gym outfit. They got to know him and found just how great of a person he is!
Not long after being a member, this amazingly disciplined man got the “Member of the Month” title in the gym because of the inspiration he brings to everyone and of course, because of his charming and loveable personality!Pixabay Source: Pixabay
“He says he is 91 years young and brags about how much his workout routine has helped him in his daily routines,” an Anytime Fitness representative shared. “Seeing someone like him inspires others to keep it up and incorporate fitness into their life.”
The gym posted this questionnaire which Lloyd answered as the “Member of the Month” and people online were applauding the elderly man for his great advice to “go ahead, get started.” Community members who have known Lloyd outside the gym also shared fond memories and fun anecdotes about who truly Lloyd is.Facebook Source: Facebook

“He is the sweetest YOUNG man I have ever met! … I can’t wait to talk with him and tell him what an inspiration he is to others all across America,” says the gym representative.
Lloyd is an absolutely inspiring man. If he can do it and become a “fitness goal” at 91, then we can all do it, too!
