You're never too old to get benefits from exercise!
Just ask Doug Beavers.
And the World War II vet knows what strengthening, conditioning and focusing on his breathing can do.
Since last spring, he's been part of the Better Breathers workout at a local health center.
It's got cardio, weights, walking and stretching - all aimed at stronger breathing.
"He's 97, and he's in here Monday, Wednesday and Friday," said Brian Andrews, respiratory therapist.
"When I came here, I couldn't walk, I had to hold onto something just to move around. And now I can walk across the room," said Beavers.
Despite congestive heart failure, Beavers can still do what he loves best - ride horses.
He's already planning his 100th birthday celebration.
