Health advocates have long said that regular exercise can play a major role in your physical and mental well-being.
Kay Yamauchi is living proof of that. The 99-year-old is a regular at Castle Medical Center’s Wellness and Lifestyle Center. She has been for five years.
“I started to come and I feel so good, that’s why I come,” she explained. “I thought if I come and exercise, it helps, because at home like that, I hardly do anything. That’s why I come.”
Like most “gym rats,” she too has found a groove in her routine, attending classes three times a week.
Yamauchi shows that keeping your body strong and limber can help you maintain independence as you age.
“I really enjoy the class. I don’t want to miss it. I want to continue,” she said.
