Age is no obstacle for fit retiree

This 68-year-old uses Egypt's streets as his own gym

Location: Minya, Egypt

Abdel Mohayman Shehata Ali keeps fighting fit

by climbing trees and stair rails

lifting on the city's street lights

and working out on tracks along the Nile river

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) 68-YEAR-OLD RETIRED AGRICULTURAL ENGINEER AND STREET WORKOUT LOVER, ABDEL MOHAYMEN SHEHATA ALI, SAYING:

"There are people who say: 'You have to quit, you grow old, age has limits, you may get a fracture while doing one of your moves, you are not young.' This is the way they think. I never think about this. If I think about it, I will go to sleep."
