97 and still working out

[WCCO-TV, March 22, 2018] Sticking to a regular exercise routine has its challenges. Even though the health benefits are well-noted, many of us fail to exercise consistently.

But not Loretta Jensen. Loretta is getting ready to celebrate her 98th birthday next month.

Three times a week you’ll find her working out at the Mercy Hospital – Unity Campus Cardiac Rehab Fitness Center.

When Loretta Jensen was 90 years old, she suffered a heart attack. During her recovery, her doctor sent her to the cardio rehab fitness center and told her to work out there for three weeks. It’s been eight years.

“I just love coming here. It’s the best place. I’d never leave if I didn’t have to,” Jensen said.
