The Way This 73-Year-Old Lady Transformed Her Body Is Inspirational

When you are old, making a change in your life might seem impossible. However, Joan MacDonald, a 73-year-old woman from Ontario, Canada, proves that it is indeed possible to do so.

When she was 70-years-old, her general physician told her that she must use prescription drugs because of her age and since then, she decided to change her life around.

She claimed that she knew she had to change something in her life, especially after seeing her mother “go through the same thing, taking medication after medication, and I didn’t want that life for myself,” she claimed. 



Her daughter Michelle is a competitive powerlifter, yogi, professional chef, and owner of Tulum Strength Club located in Mexico. MacDonald turned to her for help which turned into the greatest thing in her life.

After a while, she started doing cardio in the form of walking, practicing yoga, and even lifting weights. As of now, MacDonald is a star in fitness and can be found in front of many magazine covers.

She inspires many people throughout the world to work hard and exercise to get fit.

After losing 60 pounds, she feels much healthier and fitter than she had ever felt.



MacDonald is an Instagram celebrity who posts regularly. The posts consist of motivational quotes and workout videos. People are inspired by how she was able to defy her age and maintain her body and health.

After several years of working out, Joan claims that she feels like a different woman.

“I know what macros are, I can create balanced meals, I know how to move around with confidence in the gym and I understand the importance of lifting heavy weight. I just love connecting with other women and men who are also choosing to live a healthier lifestyle.

I’ve found that this new way of living has allowed me to meet and help encourage many others to do the same. If you are looking for a change I can tell you that it is not an easy journey but it is well worth it. I hope that my story gives you the confidence that you can change too.”

If MacDonald can do it on her age, then you can do it as well! This Canadian Wonder Grandma is just a wonder of this world.
