Are these the fittest grandmas in Los Angeles?
It’s a new year, and if you’ve resolved to get fit in 2014, this group of motivated grandmas (and one grandpa) will encourage you to jumpstart your workout.
Two years after installing a Trust for Public Land Fitness Zone ® exercise area in a neighborhood park in Los Angeles County, we dropped back in to see who was using the equipment.
What we found there nearly blew us away. This group of superstar seniors has been meeting up at the Morgan Park Fitness Zone in Baldwin Park, CA, to exercise together four times a week. Thanks to this dedicated regimen, the group’s members—some in their eighties—have successfully completed two 5K races. In the process, they’re also building friendships—and having a blast.
