Lady with name Mc Donald has proven to people across the globe that age is just a number.
The active old lady was in her 70s when she had the idea to start inspiring other women on fitness routines which she wanted to share on Instagram although she had no idea how to use social media. [When I was younger] married women didn’t belong to gyms, they just didn’t, until later on, she says.
Today, Macdonald has enviable biceps and nearly a million followers. She told reporters, It’s a challenge to our ideas of who older women are allowed to be. “Older women have a lot to offer.
There are a lot of older women out here older than I am that are really strong, amazing people. Older women have a voice and we need to be listened to. People think, Oh Grandma, what does she know? But you’d be amazed at what Grandma can do.
McDonald’s fitness journey began like many people’s: with a visit to the doctor. “They said they were going to increase my medications because my blood pressure was not being controlled properly, but I didn’t like to be on medication,” she says.
Her daughter Michelle, a health coach helped her along the line with professional counselling. With her doctor’s blessing, she started to learn the basics, reading up on nutrition and fitness.
