See what a little daily exercise can do? 72-year-old Ernestine Shepherd has a bangin' body! She leads an exercise class for senior citizens in Baltimore, MD. Ernestine was born during the Roosevelt administration. That was before the Internet, rap music videos, and other lazy distractions that can turn a pretty woman's head.

Back in those days, real men worked or served their country in the military -- not hung out on street corners smoking weed all day like our boys do now. So Ernestine has always had a work mentality. She knows that in order to achieve great results you have to work hard -- something that our youth today don't have a concept of. If she can teach a class, plus runs 10 miles a day and work out with a personal trainer, you can do it too!

    Can't see the video, but I bet she's got it going on! I admire those that work out for their health and longevity.

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    She good. Nothing you can do about wrinkles in the face except for plastic surgery, but overall she good. All sistas can have a body like that if they worked out regularly like this chick.

    :offtopic: did anyone read the story on ajc about the elementary school teacher leaving her child in the car while she was at work? :-( It sounds like she simply forgot he was in there. :wail:

  • EricaDenese

    She definitely looks great. A woman at any age that looks like that would look great though.

    She's definitely my inspiration to get in the gym when I get off.

    Morning everyone!! :danban1:

  • attorneymom

    She was the inspiration that I needed. This woman just put me to shame. Going to the gym right now.

    I have to post this on my blog. Wow.

  • pinksghetti

    So much for the theory of aging "automatically" making your body out of shape. Her face is beautiful too! I wish I looked that good and I'm over 40 years younger than her :(
