First up is this seriously groving granny, getting down to some Pickwick. You have to see her drop and work out some worm-like moves! At 83 years old, we have to say, she is SERIOUSLY working it.

Next is 73-year-old abuelita, Sandra Foli, who battled septic shock and started lifting weights after her ilness to get in shape. Then she took the hobby to a whole other level and just five years later set a power-lifting record for her age group by heaving a whole 181.5 lbs! Chad Hobbs is Foli's trainer and says she is an isnpiration, "Where so many people become sedentary later on in life, she's doing something about it."
