When it comes to one’s personal fitness, it can be easy to make excuses.

People will often use “I’m busy,” or “I’m tired” to rationalize not going to the gym, but the next time you’re thinking about bailing on leg day, just think about Charles Eugster.

Eugster — a 95-year-old Brit — shocked the world this weekend when he broke the 200m sprint world record time in his age group.


Eugster had only been training for a year, and his time of 55.48 seconds shattered the previous record by 2.4 seconds. While he won’t be catching Usain Bolt anytime soon, his story is certainly a reminder to the rest of us to get off our butts and get after it.
