In Canada, a septuagenarian is a real source of inspiration: the latter has become a fitness influence on Instagram. And the least we can say is that the latter commands respect and admiration.
At 75, Joan MacDonald has become a beloved fitness influencer on Instagram. It must be said that the septuagenarian gives herself the means to succeed in order to become a better version of herself. Back on his impressive journey.
Her incredible transformation began five years ago when Joan was diagnosed with arthritis. At the time, the latter had difficulty going up and down the stairs, and fatigue was omnipresent in her daily life.
Faced with this situation, her daughter — who works as a fitness coach — advised her to change her diet and exercise. And the least we can say is that this precious advice changed his life.
Shortly after, the Canadian put her suitcases in Mexico to spend a few weeks with her daughter and her husband. There, Joan followed a dietary program set up by her daughter. On the menu: macronutrients, lipids, carbohydrates and proteins accompanied his meals. In parallel, she began to train in a gym .
“It was difficult at first. People don’t understand that my mother was out there in the trenches trying to figure it all out. She was very frustrated ,” Michelle MacDonald told ABC News. The young woman is the founder of «The Wonder Woman», a bodybuilding program.
Despite the difficulties, the septuagenarian has never relaxed her efforts. Unsurprisingly, she began to feel better about herself, and her health issues greatly diminished. Back home, the sportswoman continued her training and her food rebalancing.
Today, the super granny is in top mental and physical shape: “I go to the gym five days a week. I love this routine because it helps me push myself ,” she said. Over the span of four years, Joan lost approximately 30 kilograms. She also stopped taking her medications for high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
On Michelle’s advice, she created an Instagram account to share her physical transformation . Unsurprisingly, his page is a real source of inspiration for his 1.5 million subscribers. Through her page, Joan reminds us that it’s never too late to make a fresh start, regardless of age or situation.
“Nothing is magic. It’s work, but it’s work you can enjoy ,” she said. «In the end, you’re going to be stronger and healthier, and that’s all that really matters.»
