Training With Joan: Strong at Age 74. How Did She Do It?

At an age when we’re told to walk around the mall for exercise, Joan MacDonald is doing weighted pull ups. Clinically obese with high blood pressure, acid reflux and arthritis at the age of 70, Joan decided to make a change and get off her prescribed meds. She started working with a trainer, her daughter Michelle MacDonald, and found herself on “an adventure” where every week she feels stronger. She has completely transformed her health, is off her meds, and is inspiring her one million Instagram followers with her story. David sits down with Joan and Michelle to discuss this incredible journey, Joan’s training regime and diet, and how “age has nothing to do with your potential.”

“Do the exercises, get in there and make yourself stronger. Have a better life than you’re having.”
