Australian Janice Lorraine, aged 77, is a professional bodybuilder.
She started practicing bodybuilding after her retirement.
She decided to boldly pursue bodybuilding because she missed her career as a school psychologist.
“No one has the right to dictate when I should stop working or stay at home.
I felt like I was drifting away from what I loved. I felt devastated,” Janice says.
One day, she went to a gym where she noticed a group of older women struggling to do basic exercises.
That’s when Janice realized she didn’t want to be immobilized for as long as possible.
She started working out. She goes to the gym seven days a week, does 60 push-ups, and runs 20 miles per week.
“We have 80-year-olds in our gym! They stay fit and lead an active life,” explains Janice Lorraine.
Her husband supports her every step of the way.
He also helps her with body makeup during competitions.
Currently, she is training for a bodybuilding competition in Thailand and believes that her example will inspire other retirees to stand tall after retirement.
