102-year-old Jean Bailey isn’t letting her age hold her back from staying in shape. The Omaha, Nebraska native has been leading fitness classes for her neighbors at the Elk Ridge Village senior living center since the pandemic began. Bailey leads classes four times a week for 10-12 seniors. The classes are a mix of stretching and light movement, and participants are instructed to take it at their own pace depending on their physical ability. Bailey loves being involved in the Elk Ridge Village community by sharing her fitness skills and always brings her positive energy to class. She begins each session with a motivational quote, and can sometimes be found at the center’s happy hour for a hard-earned drink after her workout.
