You're never too old to pump iron

Motivation can be tough for many gym-goers. But for Doug Hitchcock, motivation has never been a problem - and he's likely to inspire a few people too.

"I work hard to achieve excellence in a holistic lifestyle - encompassing the physical, mental and the spiritual aspects of life," says the 83-year-old.

"I've had a blessed life. I've travelled, I've worked with some wonderful people and as I get older I don't want to be a burden to anyone."

Hitchcock, a father of three, lost his wife to cancer three years ago after being married for 57 years and says the hardest thing for him has been to learn to live on his own again.

But exercise has given him a whole new social circle.
