Age knows no barrier when it comes to Dan Pomeroy and there is no sign of him slowing down any time soon. Walking into Port Isabel’s “The Gym” these days there’s a good chance you can see the 91 year old working out and having fun.

“This guy is so much fun,” said Joe Altamirano, “he is all smiles and has a sense of humor that makes everyone around him smile.”

Pomeroy has a personal trainer and remains dedicated to staying fit and working out and has done so for years. He doesn’t seem to back away from a challenge either and is serious about what he is doing.

 “Oh, he is,” said Altamarino, “this is a guy that is working just as hard as anyone else that walks through the doors. It’s so neat to see him come in here and if you talk to him you feel like you’re talking to someone my age. He is sharp as a tack and keeps everyone on their toes.”
