Meet the 74-year-old bodybuilder breaking age expectations – Sports Illustrated

At 74,  Janice Lorraine is among the very few senior female bodybuilders. But less than 20 years ago, she was a pudgy, middle-aged woman who hated what she saw in the dressing room mirror as she tried on swimsuit after swimsuit. Janice changed all that when She decided her health trumped all and hit the gym.

Key Takeaways:

  • Janice Lorraine proves that age doesn’t determine what you can do. She fights against the typical stereotype of a 74-year-old woman.
  • Daily cardiovascular exercise will improve your health and body, no matter what age you are.
  • She believes she may be among the oldest competing bodybuilders who is “trying to set people free from the idea that a woman should be a certain way at a certain age.”

“I’m aiming to show a different image of an older person because we become what we expect to become.”
