NPR is my Walk Buddy in the morning. It’s my time to catch up on the news and stories like this one, part of a series about Seniors working past
retirement. I was walking with ear buds and hand weights so I could identify with John David who became a Certified Trainer in his 50s. Now he trains and teaches seniors how to stay fit and healthy at all ages.
For fitness instructor John David, 73, work means working out. His job is to help older people stay healthy and fit.
At one recent hour-long class at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, he leads more than 30 people in stretching and flexing every single part of their bodies. David demonstrates every movement for his class. If he teaches two classes in a day, then he goes through the workout twice.
I wish John David were here in Delaware!
