Ernestine: Senior Weightlifting Wonder

Ernestine is 73. Ernestine is a Weightlifter.

With 10 percent body fat, Ernestine Shepherd is 5-foot-5 and about 130 pounds of inspiration to her clients, many of whom she includes in her routine of walking or running, which begins at 4 a.m.

Five days a week, she trains women of all ages — three days at Energy gym and two days at her church, where she has a class of 25…

It wasn't until she turned 56 that she began to exercise with the aid of her sister. They were both spurred on to join a gym after shopping for bathing suits and thinking they didn't like what they saw in the mirror.

(I bet she eats right, too! I'm just 4 years younger but she puts me to shame.)
