Meet the World's Oldest Lady Bodybuilder

Age is just a number for her. Freshly turned 80, Ernestine Shepherd is the fittest grandmom you'll ever come across. A bodybuilder and fitness coach, Ernestine started exercising at the ripe old age of 56.



Shepherd still participates in fitness competitions and frequently scoops up titles for her incredible physique. She's won two bodybuilding titles and was declared the oldest competitive body builder in the world from 2010 to 2011 by the folks at Guinness.



This 80-year-old grandmother has put fellow bodybuilding competitors to shame and credits diet, exercise and God for her excellent health. She wakes up at 3am to train and runs about 10 miles daily. She has also run multiple marathons!



As she reveals on facebook, she sticks to a strict 1700-calorie diet that includes egg whites, chicken and vegetables. And no, she doesn't take any supplements.



Ernestine will also celebrate 60 years of marriage with her husband this year and is the proud mother of one. She recently released her first book, titled Determined, Dedicated, Disciplined To Be Fit in April 2016. The title is her life mantra as well.



At an age where most folks are bed-ridden, Ernestine is true embodiment of what discipline and hard work can do. Even for the younger lot, she is an inspiration for some serious life goals.
