Meet Iris, the 75-year-old bodybuilder proving that it’s never too late to start training

At 75 years of age, Iris maintains a perfectly toned bodybuilding frame that most people half her age would be jealous of.

On her 74th birthday she became a world record-holder for performing 21 pull-ups in a row

At 1,52 metres tall and 45 kg of mostly muscle, she’s her own role model and her job as a personal trainer helps her to maintain her shape.

It’s never too late – women start training with Iris at 70 – and within months they are toned and sculpted. Iris tells them: “If I can do it, you can do it”!
