The picture I'm about to show you all of Dick Van Dyke will officially make every excuse you have for not exercising sound really bad. Now let's be clear — I'm no Olympian myself. I can barely get out of bed in the morning without something hurting, so I'm not judging anyone.

I'm just saying if 96-year-old Dick Van Dyke can get his butt to the gym today, maybe it's not a bad idea for all of us to do the same!

Look, we all know one-name wonders are powerful. Take Madonna, Elvis, Prince, and Beyoncé for example.

However, do you know what is even more powerful than one iconic name? Three iconic names! So, without further ado, let's welcome the three-name wonder Dick Van Dyke to the conversation ladies and gentlemen!

There are so few legends left from the Golden Age of Hollywood, it's a real shame.

Kids today have no idea what they're missing when it comes to talent and acting power. Dick Van Dyke is truly the essence of a Hollywood showman and doesn't seem to be showing signs of slowing down anytime soon!

In fact, the "Mary Poppins" actor is making headlines for how great he's looking these days in newly snapped paparazzi photos.

If you follow the actor on social media, you'd know he spends his days dancing, singing, and laughing with his love Arlene Silver. However, as for public outings, they have become few and far between for the Hollywood legend.

So as you can imagine, fans were thrilled to see Dick out and about and enjoying the sunshine and heading to the gym in some newly released paparazzi pics.

If he himself just smiling on the street and enjoying life wasn't sweet enough, the 96-year-old was wearing a sweater that read "a spoonful of sugar" — an homage to the classic Mary Poppins tune.

Fans took to social media to applaud the star's healthy lifestyle, and to enquire about finding a sweater like that for themselves!

My favorite tweet? "96-year-old Dick Van Dyke is at the gym. I'm eating my second bagel of the day."

Way to go, Dick!
