World’s oldest female bodybuilder is most inspiring

Written by Diane Archer

Born in 1936, Ernestine Shepherd is a bodybuilder. In her 60s, she had been a “couch potato.” Then, she and her health care buddy, her sister, decided to take weight training. Their goal was to be in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The weight training transformed Ernestine’s life. And, after the death of her beloved sister, it alleviated Ernestine’s depression and anxiety. At the age of 74, Ernestine made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest female bodybuilder.

Watch Ernestine’s video and be inspired! As she says, “Age is nothing but a number, and you can get fit!”
