Dick Van Dyke is 95 years old and still works out! He recently showed off his exercise routine that he typically does in the backyard. In a new interview with CBS This Morning, he talked all about how he’s not slowing down and has no plans to. “I’m 95, and a lot of my friends won’t do these,” he says, and then demonstrated his fitness routine. “… So all you old guys out there, listen to me, I’m telling you: You can keep going for a long— I’m still dancing! And singing!”
He goes on to say that he is still an “active actor,” and looked back on his recent 2018 Mary Poppins Returns role, where he did an intricate dance sequence. He admits he was given “three versions and I took the hardest one. I had to prove I could do it.”

The actor also says that he is actually looking forward to turning 100, even if he has a few years to go. “I’m looking forward to 100,” he admits. “George Burns made it, and I’m gonna do it too!”
“I can’t handle the tennis court anymore. I can still run and dance and sing. You know, I made a habit of asking other people in their old age: of all the things you enjoyed doing when you were younger that you can’t anymore, what do you miss?” he says. “Some people mention golf or tennis. One woman said, ‘I miss having lunch with the girls.’ But the people who said I wish I had made smarter business decisions, I think they’re missing the point.”
He continues, “The point is to enjoy… You have to pick what you enjoy doing, what fulfills you, what interests you. And I realize that’s not possible for a lot of people. As Thoreau said, a lot of people are living lives of quiet desperation. But almost anyone can find that one immersing hobby or pastime that they love to do.”
