Remember last year, when Rep. Charlie Rangel had back problems, forcing him to miss votes in Congress and take time off from campaigning?

The 83-year-old Harlem institution seems to be doing better now. At the grand opening ceremony for Blink Fitness in Harlem, Rangel, dressed in a suit and bow tie, tested one of the fitness club's rowing machines.

He does not appear, in this video, to have broken a sweat.



Rangel won re-election last year in a competitive primary against multiple credible challengers.
