100-Year-Old Rock Island Gym Rat

Updated:

 

Hitting the gym may be part of your daily routine but do you expect to still be lifting weights even when you're 100?

Centurion Ben Cox is still working out at the fitness center on the Rock Island Arsenal. He's been active through his life, when he was in the Army he boxed and even had his last fight at Madison Square Garden.
     
But the most amazing thing is both of ben's grandfathers lived to be 101. Seems like a family trait.

"I work out. If I didn't, I'd feel bad," said Ben Cox. "I hurt more if I don't do it."

Ben adds if he wasn't working out he would be doing something else to stay active and stay out of trouble.
