Peoria, Arizona (CNN) Age isn't slowing an 80-year-old Arizona man down.

David Caplan celebrated his birthday at a CrossFit gym in Peoria Wednesday morning.

He's been a member of the gym for nearly three years.

Caplan says he got motivated to exercise again after he stopped playing tennis and gained 30 pounds.

Caplan's son, a CrossFit instructor, encouraged his father to try the intense workout.

He says his dad does CrossFit three days a week.
