What’s happening to women in their seventies? It seems like more and more are entering the Guinness Book of World records, and Ernestine Shepherd is no exception.
You may recall the post I wrote called: “Is 75 the new 45?” with “Paddy” Jones, the English salsa dancer with the flexibility of a young woman.
Well now we have Ernestine, and I’m even more motivated to keep lifting weights after watching this incredible 74-year-old woman. She’s a body builder and didn’t start working out until she was 56. Her goal is to inspire and motivate others to become fit naturally. She doesn’t take supplements or steroids and believes that you need to stay determined, dedicated and disciplined. She runs ten miles a day, at 4 a.m., and follows a strict high protein diet, starting with three liquid egg whites a day.
If you’d like to see her senior fitness class, please click on another short video here. She is on a mission to help and inspire everyone, young and old alike to get fit. As a personal trainer, she even trains men in their thirties.
I’m inspired by this one Gutsy lady. Are you? Her motto is: “Don’t let life pass you by. You can be fit.”
I’m off to the gym to do another set of bicep curls, and tricep extensions, what about you?
