Margaret shows off her workout moves and even challenges reporter Ashlee Baracy to leg press the same weight Margaret can press: 160 pounds.

Margaret is a regular participant of the Functional Fitness for Older Adults class in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

“I can do a lot of things I know I couldn’t do if I didn’t come here … I just hope everyone will listen to this and go out and exercise right now,” Margaret says in the clip.
