Bodybuilding gran stuns male admirers by admitting her real age


After her passion for exercise was ignited, Lynda started lifting weights.

She revealed: “I enjoyed weight training the most and I continued this throughout my twenties and thirties to exercise regularly.

“I became so interested in learning more, so I was constantly reading books and magazines about weight training and bodybuilding.

“I completely fell in love with weight training and would lift as heavy as I could with good form and I also did some cardio.”

During this time, her husband Mark, 55, encouraged the gym bunny to sign up to bodybuilding contests.

But it wasn’t until Lynda turned 51 that she plucked up the courage to give bodybuilding competitions a go.

The grandma-of-six – to Max, seven, Ella, five, Victoria, three, Georgia, two, Jack, one and Nora, 11 months – says the contests have been a huge confidence booster.

She revealed: “I started competing when I was fifty-one and up until then I still had major stage fright. I did not like to be in front of a large group of people or be centred out.

“The first time stepped on stage, I thought I would faint and almost didn’t do it.

“The girl behind me actually had to give me a little nudge to get me to step on stage.

“After my first competition was over, I couldn’t wait to do it again, as it gave me such a giant confidence boost.”

Lynda’s confidence boost hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Men, including her husband of 15 years, find her buff body and positive attitude to be very attractive.

The gran confessed: “My husband loves the way I look.

“He knows that I get some admiring glares and comments from other men but isn’t really bothered by them. He is very confident in our relationship.

“He usually brushes it off and doesn’t say too much. He leaves it up to me to handle it, if it’s unwanted attention.

“Sometimes I think they flirt when they don’t know he’s in the room and quickly stop when they realise he’s my husband.”

Lynda is now a five-time bodybuilding champion who hopes to inspire others to follow in her footsteps.

She said: ”I hope to inspire others to get off the couch, get off the phones and tablets, and move, just move.

“It starts with a mindset; you should have a clear vision of your reasons for change and that vision becomes your motivation. Picture yourself achieving your goals.

“With that clear vision in mind, seek out all the information you can and learn how to achieve those goals through informative magazines and books, reliable sources on the internet, or find a qualified coach or trainer.

“I believe it all starts in the mind but continues in the heart. You need to believe in yourself.”
