As summer draws to a close, most people are looking forward to warm sweaters and hot chocolate. It’s even possible that you’re contemplating taking a few days off from the gym since you worked so hard all summer to look sizzling hot in your bikini. Before you crawl under the covers with a box of Chips Ahoy, you might want to take a look at these fit and fabulous women, all of whom are over 60 years old. Guaranteed, these ladies will change your mind.

Diana Nyad
After four failed attempts, Diana finally succeeded in swimming the 103-mile span from Cuba to Florida in 2013. Now 66 years old, she is still a firm believer of following your dreams regardless of age. If you can dream it, you can do it.

Constance Tillit
This powerhouse has done what makes grown men cry. At 80 years old, not only has she lost 50 pounds doing CrossFit, but she also has made a video encouraging others. Her motto is,”Get up and do it. Stop with the whining!” With that said, the next time you want to drop out of spinning class because it’s too intense, think of Constance. If an 80-year-old woman can do dead lifts, surely you can peddle your fanny uphill for 40 minutes.

With over 70 years of experience under her yoga belt, this 97-year-old yogi is still going strong; not only in the world of yoga but on the big screen as well. In June 2015, she dazzled the judges on America’s Got Talent when she danced like nobody was watching to Pitbull’s Fireball. Porchon-Lynch definitely proves that age is just a number.

Gunhild Swanson
Remember when you were in high school and had to run laps around the track? Remember how you complained the entire time stating you were going to die before completing one mile? Unfortunately, you might need to hang your head in shame since Gunhild Swanson ran over 100.2 miles in less than 29 hours, and her coach didn’t have to tell her to pick up the pace. At 70 years young, she broke the record for being the oldest woman to complete the Western State Endurance Run. Simply magnificent, I would say.
