This gym rat celebrated his birthday by working out. Oh…and he’s 102 years old

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Dr. James Chou turned 102 on Thursday.

How did he celebrate? By going to the gym.

Chou completed a mini workout Thursday with her son at 24 Hour Fitness in Pearl City.

Going to the gym on her birthday has become a tradition for Chou. This is the third year in a row that he has celebrated this event there.

Chou trains six days a week and has been a member of the gym for 25 years.

“I think I keep my muscles and my brain working every day, so I do my health routine,” he said. “People here are very nice. They took good care of me, that’s why I live so long.

He added: “Everyone should do it if they have time.”

Staff and gym members wished Chou a happy birthday. Over the years, he has come to know those in the gymnasium and considers them his family.
