Neil Madden is nothing if not determined.

The 58-year-old from Naperville applied 12 times to be a contestant in the Daily Herald Fittest Loser competition. Now an official 2020 participant -- finally! -- workouts with his trainer at Push Fitness have become online affairs.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

But that's not stopping him.

With the help of his 16-year old son Kevin, a senior at Naperville North, Madden is staying the course. Well, sort of.

Enjoy their home video above and remember there are a lot of health benefits from exercise -- and laughter.
