This 77-Year-Old CrossFitter Is Tougher Than You'll Ever Be

CrossFit can seem pretty intimidating with its rigorous workouts and strength training. 

But not for this 77-year old woman. Constance Tillet used CrossFit to get her health back on track after double hip and knee replacements, a rotator cuff procedure and a multitude of other health problems.

These days Constance sounds like a trainer herself — and a tough one at that. She gave some advice in an appearance on "CBS This Morning."

"Get up and do it. Stop with the whining," Constance Tillet said. "Stop with, 'Oh, you have to take care of me.' Take care of yourself."

CBS paints a picture of what Constance's life was like before she started exercising a year ago and lost 50 pounds.

"She took insulin over four times a day for diabetes and 60 pills to treat high blood pressure, congenital heart failure and arthritis," co-host Norah O'Donnell said. 

Consider this your motivation to get a workout in this weekend.
