Maintaining an incredible level of fitness isn't easy.

It takes a lot of motivation...

And juggling a work-out with the hectic schedules of day-to-day life isn't usually ideal.

Working out religiously isn't for everyone...

And that's fine!

But for many...

Working-out is a way of life.

Especially for those who work in high-demand environments...

Such as those who work in the army or The Marines.

To be a U.S. Marine...

A person must have an incredible amount of endurance, motivation... and of course, fitness.

And even when a person retires from their time in the marines...

They are more than likely to keep their fitness with them for the rest of their lives.

One man has very much proved this recently...

This is Major Bill White.

And this week, he celebrated an amazing milestone.

Hitting a rather big birthday!

The legend turned 105.

And celebrated with a very appropriate drive-by birthday salute.

And he's in fantastic spirits.

"Feels just as good as it did at 104," he told News4SA.

Which he sat outside this weekend dressed in full uniform.

Communication director Tony Walker spoke very highly of White.

"He was in Shanghai before WWII and the Japanese invasion and all that."

"Iwo Jima got hit - blown up with a grenade."

"Recovered from that. Spent a total of 30 years in the Marine Corps. Just an amazing guy."

White passed the day surrounded by family.

After a long period without seeing them, due to the pandemic.

His daughter Mary Huston was emotional.

"It's very heartwarming and it just does get to you that there are so many people that love him and appreciate him for his service."

And as for his future plans?

White joked, "Right now I'm trying for 106."

What a guy!
