Exercise Teacher Turns 100! And She's on Facebook!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 100-year-old exercise instructor says the secret to longevity is an attitude of gratitude.

St. Paul, Minn., resident Lauretta Taggert, who celebrated her 100th birthday this week, says she doesn`t let her age slow her down.

She`s been an exercise instructor for the past 15 years. "


If I live to be a 100-years-old, the only exercise I will get will be getting out of bed to change my diapers.

God bless this centenarian who`s not only still alive and kicking, but leading exercise classes at the senior apartments where she lives.

The last time I took an aerobics class, this was about 30 years ago, the young blond spandex-wearing teacher almost worked me to death. If I ever sign up for an exercise class again, it`s going to be led by an octogenarian who will be more likely to have mercy on me.

Taggert looks terrific, why she doesn`t look a day over 90, we wish her many more years of an active lifestyle.  

It`s a miracle Taggert is leading an exercise class, but it`s an even bigger miracle that the sweet old lady is active on social media.

You go granny!
