Many of us struggle to fit exercise into our daily routines. That can be especially difficult as we age and deal with health problems like joint and muscle pain. But that doesn't mean you have to slow down.
When you think of someone who works out at the gym six days a week, you probably don't think of someone like this man.
"I'm a great, great grandfather now. Haha," Brokaw said.
Brokaw will turn 90 in June, but he's not slowing down. The Sioux Falls man hits the gym every day of the week, aside from Sunday.
"It's just been a part of my life. I just love it, and sports are fun," Brokaw said.
While staying active might be a task for many of us, Brokaw says it's something he enjoys.
"It isn't something I had to do. I didn't have to force myself. I wanted to do it," Brokaw said.
Brokaw says that's the secret to staying in shape. He does admit though that he doesn't enjoy working out on machines as much as playing sports.
"Softball, racquetball, hiking, golfing of course," Brokaw said.
But he's had to give up that part of his active lifestyle because of damage to his nerves. Still Brokaw says as he approaches 90, he has a lot to look forward to and an active lifestyle will help.
"I have a great, great granddaughter. She's a sweet, little girl. She's getting married, and she wanted me to walk her down the aisle," Brokaw said.
Just one reason Brokaw is putting his feet first for fitness.
Brokaw says along with staying active, he believes his good genes have helped him stay healthy. Most of his siblings are still alive or have lived well into their 90s.
