Eric Braeden is one of the longest serving actors on The young and the restless. The star joined the show in the ’80s and has stayed with the soap throughout its run.

Braeden turned 81 in April but doesn’t look a day older than 65. It turns out it’s thanks to his training. The star posted a workout photo on his Twitter account and fans haven’t stopped asking him about fitness videos.

Braeden loves interacting with his fans on social media. His Twitter page is constantly teeming with videos and pictures of him, his family and his work. The actor recently posted a photo of himself on a spin bike with the caption, “Early workout.”

The photo quickly resonated with his fans, who thirsted for him, with some praising his ability to stay fit. One fan commented: “Physical activity makes you feel good, gives you energy and can boost your spirits. I now have my own home gym for daily exercise.”

The star replied to the fan, writing: “It’s the BEST medicine there is!!” Another fan commented, “I’ve always admired you for staying in top shape. I remember you training with Nick on the punching bag.” Braeden responded with, “A long time ago.”
