Do you recognize the name Wang Deshun? Maybe not, but I’ll bet you recognize his photo. He’s 80 years old and has been called ‘China’s hottest grandpa.’

Wang’s philosophy is that it’s never too late to try something new. He worked at many different jobs over the course of his life, eventually ending up as a television and film actor – and even a runway model.

A video of him walking bare-chested down the catwalk last year at the China Fashion Week in Beijing went viral on Facebook. If you’re on Facebook, then you’ve probably seen it.

His one-time stint on the catwalk was a favor for a family friend, and he doesn’t plan to repeat that performance. In fact, he has actually turned down subsequent offers to walk down the catwalk again.

If you look at his photo, you can easily see that he’s in excellent shape not just for someone his age. He’d put many 20-year-olds to shame.

When asked about fitness, he replied that he works out two hours a day and doesn’t diet.

His fitness regimen, though, isn’t for the purpose of his health per se. He says his physical training is entirely for his job as an actor.

Wang has expressed his life philosophy, saying, “In order to enjoy good health and a sound body, first you must attend to your spirit, and the rest will follow.”

Sounds easy, right? But we often get so caught up in jobs and family that we forget to care for the state of our minds.

Maybe it’d be a good idea to print out the picture of China’s hottest bare-chested grandpa and plaster it on the wall of every room at home. Do you think that’d work?
