FRED Perryman has been going to the gym for 18 years – and he won’t let his age stop him now.

The 80-year-old, of Millfield in Berkhamsted, goes to Fitness First in High Street three times a week.

He said: “You see so many people of my age struggling to walk, let alone anything else – it’s really important to exercise.”

He uses the treadmill, cross-trainer and rowing machine when at the gym.

But Fred said: “It’s a bit of a struggle going back home afterwards – the hill up Gravel Path is steep.”
