Ernestine Shepard. 74 year old body builder and athlete, she currently holds the Guinness book of world records for being the oldest female body builder. I was at a loss for words when I watched Ernestine’s video she is so inspirational. I have my own fitness goals and I complain about achy knees now and after watching this I have zero complaints. She wakes up every morning and at 4am she runs 10 miles. She avidly competes in marathons and body building competitions. She is a fitness instructor and personal trainer there is nothing that this woman doesn’t do. With all the fitness aspirations I have, I have now added looking like Ernestine when I am 74 to my list. Her personality and spirit are so warm and her zeal for life is uplifting. Cheers to you Ernestine!
