Watch: 100 Year Old Ruth Doing Pilates and Stretches

Ruth has more energy than most people half her age. At 100 years old she makes it a point to stretch everyday and attend Pilates classes once a week. Ruth told me that even if she doesn’t feel like exercising she tells herself, ” Just do it” and it always makes her feel better. Ruth looks elegant no matter what she is doing. She says, “I wear lipstick, even when I have to go to the hospital. You never know who you are going to meet.” I am honored to be able to spend time with such an amazing woman and hope she can influence all to stay active.

Lengendary Dancer Jacquie “Tajah” Murdock

It’s always an honor and a pleasure to photograph dancer, Jacquie “Tajah” Murdock. Not only does she continue to dance into her 80s, but she also dresses up everyday no matter what. Jacquie grew up in Harlem, always dreaming of being a model and a dancer-She knew at five years old that she wanted to dance. A few years ago The Apollo Theater recognized Jacquie as a legendary dancer and one of her dreams came true. I hope Jacquie can inspire everyone to stay active and never forget their dreams.
