CK Perez, as she is affectionately called at the East Bank Club in Chicago, is 86 years young! She appears vibrant, in shape, and has the spirit of the color she loves the most — green. Green is symbolic to her of all that is growing and willing to live.
She talks to us about her life, how she got to where she is today and dispenses valuable advice on how to grow older with gusto. For starters, “stop focusing on aging and focus on the gift of being alive.” She is basically saying live in the moment!
This fitness enthusiast didn’t start working at a paying job that reflected her lifetime passion until she was 52. Some of her advice she talks about on the podcast includes staying engaged with people, living whatever faith you choose, and keeping your brain active!
