Health & Exercise
Not only is Dwight Williams following an exercise routine that people half his age would find challenging, he’s also embraced the video-sharing platform TikTok, which is popular with much younger users.
“I’m trying to get into shape for my 73rd birthday,” Dwight said in a video of one of his intense workouts, “but it’s a war. A never-ending battle to fight and slow down the aging process.”
When Dwight was 18, a doctor told him that his left kidney was deteriorating, which sent him on a life-long journey to stay healthy and get fit. When he decided to share his workout videos on TikTok to inspire others, the comments started rolling in:
“You look like you in your 30s”
“You are winning brother. thank you for the inspiration”
“Yesss...I love your dedication”
“I'm a Baby Boomer,” Dwight says. “Even though I'm in my ‘70s, I still feel like I did when I was in my ‘50s.”
