LOS ANGELES (AP) — Smokey Robinson credits the habits that were instilled in him as a child with helping him maintain a healthy, active lifestyle — including being able to tour the country at 76.
“I used to run marathons and do those things that I thought were going to be beneficial for me at this time in my life,” he said in an interview last week. “When I got to this point in my life I did not realize … how beneficial it was going to be because I feel great.”
While Robinson created his legend writing classic songs like “My Girl,” ”I Second That Emotion” and more for Motown, he was also a bit of a jock, playing basketball, baseball and more. He also has practiced yoga for 35 years and has been a vegetarian longer than that.
“I’m only going to get this one body so I want to be healthy as long as possible. I believe in taking care of myself,” he said.
