Fit Folks, Max Peek, 77

Staff Writer
Austin 360

I have been working out with weights for 60 years and playing golf for 15 years. I currently work out two days a week and play golf four days a week. My lowest golf score this year is 74.

From age 40 to 65, I won six national and three world championships in powerlifting in the 148-pound weight class, master division.

I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle and happy outlook on life.

I recently lifted in a contest in San Antonio and set four national records in the 148-pound class and the 75-79 age group.
