This 50 Year-Old Fitness Model Will Redefine Your Concept Of Aging.
We like to think that if we take care of ourselves, we'll age as beautifully as possible. Those with a health-conscious mind stick to proper nutrition, routine exercise, and practice plenty of self-care to ensure that they'll look and feel good until long after they're "supposed" to. There's a myth that we all have to "let ourselves go" once we meet middle age -- but more and more, people are starting to prove it untrue more than ever before.
Take, for instance, this woman. A mom from China, she is an absolute knockout. She exercises, eats well, takes amazing care of her skin and is constantly pushing herself to meet new challenges. She would be a hot mom if she was, say, 25-years-old. However, her real age is even more shocking. Find out how old she really is -- and how she manages to stay looking so amazing -- in the story below.
This is Ye Wen.
She's a mom from China's Henan province, and she is an absolute knockout. It's easy to see why she's making headlines, just for her post-baby physique alone.
But what has caused this beauty to go international?
Well, after pictures of Ye's incredible figure went viral web users are surprised to find out her actual age. How old do you think she looks?
Before you guess, check out her fitness routine.
Most 20 year olds would have a hard time pulling this off, so she's in serious shape, even for a young person.
But would you believe that Ye is actually 50?
Yes, that's right: This woman is 50 years old, despite the fact that she looks decades younger. She says it all started when she took up swimming at age 30.
The physical activity in the water soon carried her away, and she got really interested in staying fit.
Soon after, she took on the challenge of swimming across the straits of Malacca, and now has plans to swim across the Han River in South Korea.
She also does routine exercise at home and at the gym. Ye said she trains daily at her local swimming pool and keeps toned by heading to the gym two to three times a week for two hours.
She says her ultimate goal is to look this good, even when she's 80.
If she stays on the same road she's on now, that certainly won't be hard to imagine.
Here photos have even inspired others online.
On China's Twitter-like Weibo, more she has had more than three million mentions, fellow Chinese folks discussing how to look as good as she does.
We're guessing that she's somewhat of an anomaly.
Despite the fact that she works hard for her physique, her results simply aren't typical for your average 50-year-old.
Even so, Ye reminds us of an old adage that certainly rings true for her: If you got it, flaunt it -- no matter how old you are.
