Ernestine Shepherd The 75 Year Old Bodybuilding Grandma

The world’s oldest female bodybuilder wakes up every day at 02:30to fit in a 10 mile (16km) run before hitting the gym.

But 75-year-old Ernestine Shepherd insists that “age is nothing but a number”.

“Miss Ernie”, as she is known in the world of competitive bodybuilding, began training at the tender age of 71.

She says her true calling in life, however, is helping others to follow a more healthy lifestyle.

The BBC caught up with her at an exercise class at her church in the US city of Baltimore, Maryland, to find out why she started bodybuilding.

“If there ever was an anti-aging pill, I would call it exercise,” says Ernestine Shepherd. Behold the breathtakingly magnanimous story of Ernestine, who at the tender age of 71, started competitive bodybuilding.

Her true motivational message is to inspire others to exercise and eat correctly. As Ernestine says, “Age is nothing but a number.” So watch this BBC video report and join the revolution — it is never too late to exercise and feel healthy
