MARQUETTE, MI (WLUC/NBC) - It's almost too easy to find excuses to not go to the gym. You are tired from work, you need to run errands or just that you are too old. But five days a week at Motions Fitness in Marquette, MI, you will find Bill Cohodas, who turns 100 in October.

He went to the gym for the first time just a few weeks ago, but his trainer has seen a visible improvement.

"In the course of three weeks or so, he just got done cranking out 37 plus minutes of work," trainer Mark Evans said. "So at 99 years old it's been that quick a progression for him."

Bill's trainer has seen more changes in him than just his stamina.

"He's a little bit sharper on the commands, he's responding to questions a lot better" Evans said. "Movement does great things, not just for your body, but for your brain."
