While you’re complaining about having to park at the back of the grocery store parking lot, 78-year-old Shirley Webb is putting in hard work at the gym.
Two years ago, Webb decided to join a local gym because simple things were starting to become difficult for her. She was having trouble getting up from chairs and had to hold the handrail in order to safely go up and down the stairs.
After two solid years of following an intense workout routine, the grandmother from Illinois is now setting records in her state. She can deadlift up to 245 pounds, which is a state record for her age group.
Webb told TODAY.com the following:
“I’m glad that people are getting inspired by me doing this. I had one lady come in the gym and say, ‘I saw your video and I decided to come down and join this club.’ That makes me feel good.”
