8-Year FitWitter, Cayce, shares the key to aging and what she didn’t expect to find at FitWit

Hometown: Ringgold, GA

Age: 54

Occupation: Travel agent (yes, we’re a thing again!)

First FitWit class (date):  4/13/09

Tell us about any sports & fitness background:  I’ve always been active, sitting still is the hard part. My FitWit buddies would be surprised to learn that I was a hill runner for many years when I lived in LA. I think that dry air might have been a little easier on my lungs.  But I also spent 7 years doing Iyengar yoga, was spinning in one of the first spin classes ever and worked out at Sport’s Connection in West Hollywood.  It was great.  You never got hit on there!

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting FitWit? I’m stronger and more flexible and I can just do things that a lot of friends my age can no longer do.  I also don’t have all the complaints my friends have around aging.  Exercise is key to aging without a lot of meds.

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like FitWit that were totally unexpected? I didn’t expect to find such a great community of friends. When I look around at many of the people I like hanging out with, I met them at FitWit.

Why do you FitWit? Because I know at this point that I don’t have the discipline to work out on my own and as someone who works from home, it’s a very important part of my daily schedule.  And honestly, I can’t imagine not coming to FitWit.

Favorite workouts? Do people have those?

Least favorite workouts? Anything that’s non-stop for 30 minutes.

Three words to describe you: playful, tenacious and thoughtful

Any favorite FitWit moments? Doing the FitWit Games and coming in 3rd even though it almost killed me, those bouncy things we climbed into at field day one time and every time team week is over.

Fitness Goals? 50 DU’s

Words to live by (Favorite Quote)? “The truth hurts only if you’re comforted by lies.” Jess Walter

Something cool we don’t know about you? That I produced an Academy Award winning documentary (Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kinderstransport)
