Not bad for your first competition, Ellen Bittner!!!
Ellen is a 63-year-old woman who was the average American: lazy, unhealthy, unhappy. She became part of a study about how lifestyle affect life expectancy, and she was SHOCKED to learn she was among the highest at risk for a slew of health problems like heart attacks and strokes. More importantly though, she was inspired to change.
And we hope she inspires you too!
Turns out, Bittner was REALLY GOOD at powerlifting, after her personal trainer came back from a competition raving about it, and asked her if she wanted to try it out. So they trained, and now she's taken home the gold in her first competition ever!
Check out her amazeballs story (above)! Go Ellen, goooooo!
