Ernestine Shepherd was born June 16, 1936. She just turned 80 years old.
Growing up she had no interest in being athletic. When she was in her mid-50s her older sister decided it was time for them to get into shape so they started working out together.
When her sister passed away, Ernestine gave up working out until one day her sister visited her in a dream and told her “Get up and do what I asked you to do”. She then made up her mind to fulfill the dream that her sister wanted.
Ernestine went on to win 2 bodybuilding titles and is now a viral sensation.
