I love sharing this story because Ernestine wasn't always healthy or health conscience.
Have you ever felt like you’re too old to do something?
Well, you’re never too old....just take a look at Ernestine Shepherd, she is living proof of that.
She’s the world’s oldest female bodybuilder, and believe it or not, she just recently turned 80!
Born on June 16th, 1936, the octogenarian from Baltimore didn’t start exercising until she was 56 years old!
As she explains in the video below, she got started with the help of her sister.
After her sister passed away from a brain aneurysm, however, Shepherds gave up caring about her health.
That was, until she developed high blood pressure and decided things needed to change.
Today, she regularly wakes up at 3 am, runs about 80 miles per week, and lives off a calorie-controlled diet of boiled egg whites, chicken, vegetables, and lots of water.
Ask her what her true secret of success if, however, and she’ll say it’s to ‘never give up.’
Keep that statement in mind next time you think about skipping the gym.
Getting you fit for less is what we do best!
