58-jarige vamp werkt zichzelf in het zweet voor een zeer bijzonder levensdoel (foto’s)

752

Leeftijd is maar een getal.

Dat is de boodschap die de 58-jarige Jodi Harrison-Bauer nogmaals de wereld in wil sturen. En niet door middel van een wenskaartje, maar door de oudste geselecteerde vrouw ooit te worden voor de Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  Van een ambitieus plan gesproken.

Miss Bauer heeft dan ook alle troeven in huis om haar levensdroom te verwezenlijken.  Naast trotse bezitter van de titels World Fitness American- en World Fitness Universe champion, is ze tevens eigenares van haar eigen sportschool Jodifit fitness studio in Connecticut. 

Kienen, quizzen, candy crush, bloemschikken… typische activiteiten van haar leeftijdgenoten zijn niet voor haar weggelegd. In plaats houdt ze zich dagelijks bezig met resistance training, cardio-oefingen en gewichtheffen. Zou ze toevallig Jason Statham als buurman hebben? 

Mocht ze gekozen worden door Sports Illustrated zal ze niet de oudste vrouw zijn die op de cover van SI Swim verschijnt.  Die eer gaat naar de majestueuze 65-jarige Christie Brinkley. Maar Bauer zou wel de eerste oudste vrouw zijn die geselecteerd wordt via een open casting. 

“I want to be in the Swimsuit Issue at age 59 because no woman should ever be boxed in”, aldus de GILF van onze dromen.

We duimen alvast voor haar.

And here I go! Honoring my passion and standing in my truth. Thank you for your support and wise words ladies of Jodifit. You are kick ass, smart, fun, and live & dream outside the box. We have become a family because we won’t stand for the status quo. We are not too old, too young, too tall, too short. We are perfectly imperfect and always a work in progress. Let’s show @si_swimsuit the power of strong women in pursuit of whatever their imagination and dreams take them @lisagarciaportrait – – #defiance #graceandgrit #jumpoutofyourcomfortzone #ageless #limitless #smartwomen #womenwholiftweights #mindfulness #itstartswithyou #tribe #familyfirst #dreambigger #dontstopbelieving #writeyourstory #siswim #miami🌴#siswimsearch

Age has never defined me. I always did things a little sooner or much later lol. Finding myself in my 40s &50s has been a fabulous journey without any regrets. Ive learned from my experiences, both happy and sad, fun and frustrating. Through it all, I knew it would eventually take me to the place I would be fulfilled. As I learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable, I know that I’m growing as a woman. mom, business owner and new wife. I am looking forward to my journey to Miami for the Sports Illustrated open casting call for their Swim 2020 issue. I look forward to meeting the wonderful people who have made women feel confident about themselves and have reached out to so many women. Age shouldn’t be a factor in order to achieve goals. I am not a model. Im just a woman who believes that fitness is a lifestyle and staying healthy in my body is important. I want to help others feel empowered. That is my passion. As in my @si_swimsuit video, I stated that no woman should be boxed in. I am here to represent all of you who have felt boxed in. Wish me luck! – – – #agelesswomen #dontboxmein #ageisjustanumber #fitlife #fitat58 #nolimits

Embrace who you are and don’t be boxed in by others. All our lives we did what others expected of us regarding what they thought was right, what was comfortable for THEM. I was a pleaser. What should a 58 year old woman look like? They would put us in a box because that’s where THEY were comfortable. At Jodifit, every woman owns who she is. There are no boxes except for the ones we jump on. I’m here to represent all the women who’ve felt boxed in. It’s taken me 58 years to help myself, stand in my truth, and honor myself by stepping outside the box. Now and for the past 10 years I’ve been helping others getting stronger- mind, body & soul. My clients, my daughters, my husband, and my friends have made me a better, happier and more fulfilled woman. – – – #dontboxmein #fitatanyage #fitnessisageless
