Meet the 61-year old Chinese man with the physique of a teenager
People around the world spend loads of money in trying to look younger and the mere thought of growing old is scary for most. The global anti-aging market is predicted to touch US$190 billion by 2019. Ands that's even more money than the GDP of many countries.

But what we forget in a bid to look younger is that age is also a state of mind, and the state of one's mind determines to an extent how he or she looks.

Liang Xiang is a 61-year old former Chinese businessman hailing from Chengdu, South China. He embarked upon a journey of personal fitness regimen about ten years ago in a conscious effort to look younger. He has now become more of a sensation on the internet due to his chiseled physique which could put guys less than half his age to shame.

The case of Liang is definitely not the first where we see a person defying stereotypes, but his case becomes particularly remarkable if you consider his accomplishments since the time he took up a strict diet regimen.

He has participated in the grueling Dakar Rally, which requires one to race on motorbikes, quads, cars and trucks in the most difficult and unimaginable terrains on Earth. He even inspired his own son to take up a healthy lifestyle and has travelled on numerous overseas expeditions.

In 2000, Liang retired from his business and decided to pursue rally racing. His physique might be impressive, but he says that his reasons for this transformation weren't merely for looking good. He is quite popular at the local gym where he spends hours in training.

There are lessons to be learned from Liang's life, that firstly its never too late in life and secondly never stop chasing your dreams.
