WoW: Alabama Lloyd Black

91-year-old inspires his whole gym, works out in his ‘comfortable’ overalls

Once he began working out there, Black’s dedication was an inspiration to the whole gym. In January 2020, they gave him the member of the month award.

“He’s been showing so much progress and over the past year he’s been coming faithfully three times a week or if not more like every other day,” Ashley Seaman, general manager of Anytime Fitness in Semmes, who nominated Black, told TODAY. “We were going into a new decade and I wanted it to be a special member of the month this time. So I felt like he would be the perfect one.”
