Arthur, we need to start some sort of exercise this year…..
A 94-year-old pensioner has become an unlikely inspiration to New Year dieters – by posting his gruelling work-out videos online.
Stanley Thomas, of Cardiff, regularly pumps iron for 50 minutes, blitzes the punchbag and then sweats it off in a sauna.
The grandfather-of-eight, who filmed his bi-weekly workout after friends encouraged him to do it to celebrate his last birthday, said: “I have always been fanatic about fitness.”
He extended his home to install a well equipped gym featuring a treadmill, crosstrainer, exercise bike, speedball, exercise bench, wall bars, free weights, punchbag and rowing machine.
“I come down here and do 50 minutes non-stop,” he said. “When I have finished, I have a sauna. I spend about 10 minutes in there perspiring it out. Then I have a shower and then I have a jacuzzi.”
