Cher is living proof that age really is just a number. The 75-year-old pop icon recently revealed her workout regime on Twitter and it’s enough to put the routine of many people half her age to shame.

“Just came up from Abs, Zumba, Yoga, Wall Sits,” she tweeted on Tuesday.

It didn't end there. The singer, long known for her fit and fabulous figure, added she had a step class scheduled for the following day along with yoga and “different abs”.

“WHOA,” she continued. 

Cher, who recently appeared as God in Pink's music video for All I Know So Far, also shared that someone had commented on her appearance in her recent MAC Cosmetics Challenge Accepted campaign with rapper Saweetie, saying she “still walks the same way she did when she was young”.

Known for her long, jet-black hair, Cher also recently revealed she’ll never be part of the embrace-your-grey brigade.

“Going grey is fine for other girls, I’m just not doing it,” she told People.

When it comes to ageing, the singer, who's also been accused of being a plastic surgery junkie, has only one thing to say: she hates it.

“What, I’m going to say I like it? No, I don’t. Any woman who's honest will say it’s not as much fun,” she told The Guardian. “When I was working on the road, we used to work two shows a night and then go out dancing all night long, but these days it’s like you’ve got to rest because you’ve got another night.

“Also, I don’t like going out now because everybody’s got a camera and it’s not safe. People rush you, and you don’t know if they’re going to kill you or take your picture. Either way, I don’t like it.”
