74-year-old Joan’s amazing transformation is a must-see
New Delhi : Age is just a number for those who believe in self and work hard to achieve the desired. Same is the case for Joan MacDonald, who was motivated to strengthen her body.
She was 70 when she decided to work on her fitness and now at 74, Joan is much in shape then many of us. Joan has gone viral for her incredible fitness journey, she has a following of more than 800,000 fans on Instagram.
Joan stared her training under her daughter’s guidance Michelle MacDonald, who is a professional trainer. On her Instagram, Joan posts videos from the gym doing impressive exercises which could surely bring shame to those half her age. From crushing bicep curls to doing hip thrusts, Joan does it all.
According to Joan self styling is often seen as insignificant, but it’s actually a great motivational tool and has a powerful impact on self-worth. When you feel you look good, you start to treat yourself with more kindness.
“If I can learn that lesson in my seventies you can too,” she writes in one of her post. “Now you won’t catch me heading to the gym (or my living room, as the case may be) without taking the time to chose a favorite outfit. My daughter tells her clients, ‘You have to invest the same love and compassion for yourself at the start of your transformation that would to your own daughter if she was in your shoes."
“Please don’t wait til you’re ‘perfect’ to take pride in yourself,” Joan writes. “You have to already see your perfection, your effort and your courage today. Love yourself enough to change and show yourself that love daily,” added the 74-year-old fitness freak.
