Former soldier approaching 90th birthday still goes to gym twice a week

A former soldier who was nicknamed "Tubby" at school is now as active as ever as he approaches his 90th birthday, playing golf three times a week and going to the gym twice a week, and has said "it's never too late to start". Douglas Robertson, 89, from Weybridge, Surrey, said he has always led an active lifestyle as he does not want to be overweight, however, he only started playing golf in his 40s and did not seriously start going to the gym until after he retired at the age of 65. During a typical week, Douglas spends Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings playing golf, and, in between this, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, Douglas heads to his local gym at The River Bourne Club, in Chertsey, where he uses strength and cardio machines.
