Jack Lalanne made a lifetime of fitness by performing amazing feats of strength through his 70s and remaining healthy and active right up until his death at almost 100 years old (he passed at 97).

Having completed 45 Ironman races, Sister Madonna Buder picked up the moniker “Iron Nun.” Turning 87 this year, Sister Madonna is still going strong competing in triathlons.
