A D-Day veteran will not let age slow him down. Ray Alexander, 93, stays fit by participating in the County’s Feeling Fit Club – an exercise program for older adults.

He no longer is moving big machinery, but he does keep his body moving three times a week thanks to the free fitness program. Feeling Fit Club allows people to work on balance, core strength and flexibility.

“To have a 90+ year old in our class is a great testimony to their perseverance in life, their attitude, their willingness to keep trying,” said Exercise Physiologist Gretchen Vurbeff. “Other people look at him and say, ‘if he can do it, I can do it.’”
