While we already feel tired by just thinking of our next workout session, this septuagenarian from Chandigarh is winning hearts with his jaw-dropping fitness videos.
Proving age is just a number, Tripat Singh opened up about his fitness journey and how the loss of his wife changed his life.
In a conversation with Humans of Bombay, the 76-year-old said that it was the death of his wife Manjeet in 1999 that led him on this path of self-care.
I was depressed for years. Our business dissolved. I became a couch potato.
However, he later realized that his wife would have been disheartened to see him quit.
So, I decided to lift myself up in my 60s and train harder to lift myself again. Today I run a successful business. And I’m fitter than I ever was! I feel my wife’s spirit and support in everything I do.
With over 34,473 likes and hundreds of heartwarming comments, the clip has touched thousands of hearts.
