Aged to Perfection examines the psychology of aging through the life of the inspiring, Jaring Timmerman. Sharp as a tack, Jaring swims internationally and competitively and has set three world records for swimming. Training six days a week, he is up at 5 am, continuing to break more records. Impressive for the average man but Jaring is not average… he is 100 years-old!
“OMNI Television is proud to share this inspirational story of a unique, unassuming man doing extraordinary things,” commented Madeline Ziniak, National Vice President, OMNI Television. “It explores the life of a hard working immigrant from Holland and finds the unexpected strengths and weaknesses that drove him to his destiny.”
This documentary follows Jaring as he trains to break a long standing world record at the National swimming competition for the 100 meter backstroke, while simultaneously reflecting on his life and how he got to where he is today. From immigrating to Canada from Holland, living through the great depression to fighting in World War II, he has no intention of slowing down.
Jaring believes that his good health and long life exist because of genes, exercise and diet. Scientists, researchers and leading field professionals put Jaring’s philosophy under the microscope and attempt to expose the facts, fiction and mysteries of a long life in this motivational documentary.
Join OMNI Television and discover that age is not a number, but a state of mind and learn the secret to a long and healthy life.
