50 over fifty: Sonny Bright

This 70 year-old bodybuilder puts a lot of Boomers' feelings into words when he says, "People have the misconception that age makes you old. I realized that it's a state of mind that makes you old."

Sam Bright was, obviously, the recipient of good genes. But Boomers want to believe his theory that people speed their physical aging process by letting their conscious and subconscious minds dwell on their chronological age. 

"I honestly don't feel that I've aged since I started bodybuilding [at age 44]," he says.

Whether you agree that working out is a panacea against aging or not, it's clear that a lot of people are inspired by his story, judging from 17,000 Facebook shares.
