This 70-year-old woman is fit and looks better than 50!
Peggy Hilbert, 70, looks better than most 40 and 50 year-old women. She is from Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida and works as a personal trainer. Also, she teaches abs and body sculpting classes and a boot camp class every week.
This beautiful senior citizen has always been an athlete and enjoyed running in her 20s; however, it was when she picked up weight lifting in her 50s, that she discovered her passion.
“It’s important to stay fit and healthy as you age so you can remain independent and happy as you grow old. I never give into my age,” Peggy said. “When I tell young people as well as older people how old I am their eyes open wide and they are astounded – which makes me feel on top of the world. I was a runner until age 32. I am so happy I stopped then because I wouldn’t be doing what I am doing today. Then I started attending aerobic classes and it became a permanent high. I then started working out with a personal trainer in groups of four and weights became my best friend.”
Three years ago, Peggy’s husband, Tom was diagnosed with ALS, aka motor neuron disease. The couple decided to take charge of their lives and continue to be happy. They decided to live life as normal as possible. Unfortunately, Tom, passed away three years ago; yet, Passionate Peg continues to live life to the fullest.
Peggy sees her personal trainer twice a week and walks every other day. Her diet consists of six small meals a day, including two protein shakes.
Despite what people may say, it is not too late to get in shape.
