Age Is Nothing But A Number!

 

If you could imagine the perfect advert to motivate you to your fitness goals, then Ernestine Shepherd would be it.

Ms Shepherd, or ‘Miss Ernie’as she is known, is a 75 year old Body builder who runs 10 miles every day, will tell you that exercise if the secret to everlasting youth. Well, it’s difficult to argue with that.

‘Miss Ernie’, has become the world’s oldest female bodybuilder, and insists that age is ‘nothing but a number’. It’s clear that this is not just talk, as she religiously gets up at 2:30am every morning for her training run and her enthusiastic gym workouts. She regularly works the Treadmills and Cross Trainers as part of her punishing routine.

The super fit pensioner from Maryland, USA, set the record in 2010 to 2012, while competing in bodybuilding championships, despite the fact that she didn’t come from a family of fitness enthusiasts, and even more remarkably, she didn’t start training herself until she reached her mid-50s.

“When I was younger, I was never, ever considered athletic. I was too prissy,” Miss Ernie told the BBC.

“But at age 56, my sister and I were invited to a picnic and we had to wear bathing suits and we didn’t like the way we looked, so we decided to exercise.

“My sister died of a brain aneurysm in 1992, I was so sad. She came to me in a dream and she said I wasn’t doing what I said we would do. So I did it.”

Now teaching a fitness class at her local church, Ernestine Shepherd is able to help women decades her junior, reach their own fitness goals and live a healthier, happier life.

Her belief and passion shines through, and to all that meet her it is clear.

“I always practice what I preach. I don’t teach bodybuilding. I teach health, happiness and prosperity – that’s the formula!”

It’s difficult not to agree with that!
