This well known photo of John Turner at age 67, was taken in 1985, by Etta Clark.
I first saw this photo when I was twenty-one, working as a fitness appraiser and personal trainer. A co-worker plastered it onto our client motivation board. I had no idea a person could age this well. The impact of this photo has left a lasting impression on me.
Today, this photo adorns a spot on the wall tucked behind the door where I practice my chin-ups. I take a peek at him from time to time as a reminder – this photo still takes my breath away.
There is another photo of him at age 79, but I was unable to attach it here. He doesn’t look much different!
