It is known that majority of the old people are neglected in this society and are not given any respect. A woman named Ernestine Sheperd of age 80 has shown the world now that age is not a criteria in attaining success and popularity and when a person is determined then he or she can go places and could get the respect from others at any age.
It is great to note that this woman is a superb bodybuilder and is inspiring many others with her determination and hard work. At her age most of others would be seen going to a hospital for their health issues but this wonderful woman is different. It must be noted that in the years 2010 and 2011 she was the cynosure of many eyes all over when she entered the famous Guinness Book of World Records as the ‘’oldest female bodybuilder’ in the world.
In the month of April in 2016 her book titled ‘’Determined, Dedicated and Disciplined to Be Fit’’ was released and it caught the attention of many. It is surprising to hear that this Ernestine Sheperd did not have interest in bodybuilding till she was 56 years of age. As a secretary in a school her life was going smooth but she was surprised when she went to shop for bathing suits she realised that she was not fit and her body shape was not okay.
At this point of time she along with her elder sister went to gymnasium. It is important to mention that Ernestine Sheperd takes boiled egg whites plus chicken and vegetables of 1700 calories per day. Superb Ernestine Sheperd!!
