Workout Wonder: 93-year-old Michigan woman hits gym 3 times a week

A 93-year-old Michigan woman proves you're never too old to hit the gym for a good workout. 

Kay Didas was never really an athlete growing up, but fast forward a handful of decades and now she has made exercising a part of her lifestyle.

She hits the gym three times a week. In fact, she just recently completed her 1,000th workout at the Curves gym in Portage, Mich. 

"There is no excuse not to be active! I had a head that had two tumors on it that I had to have a brain operation. Had to take two months off you know," Didas says. 

"She was back as soon as the doctors released her; she was back working out! It was amazing. We all look up to her," says the gym's owner Rochelle Thompson. 

Didas says she enjoys using all the machines at the gym, and that she doesn't plan on slowing down any time soon. 

Portage is located in western Michigan about two hours from Detroit.
