Fitness Competitor over 50!

by Sharon Simmons • More.com Member { View Profile }

I am an avid reader and subscriber of your magazine, and I wanted to tell you my story from the viewpoint of a reader and a fit woman over 50! MORE Magazine beautifully supports my belief “Fitness is for Any Age” and age is simply a state of mind. I started competing in fitness competitions at the age of 50 with no previous training whatsoever; I had never been a cheerleader, taken gymnastics, or dance. I had always worked out in the gym and been active overall, but with no experience I had a defining moment one day at a kickbox class – to compete in my first fitness competition at age 50. Long story short, I have over ten competitions under my belt now in my fourth year (numerous first place titles and second place titles with much younger competitors). I compete every year with Ms. Fitness USA® and speak across the U.S. at competitions. My new goal at 53 was to publish my first book; I am doing that too. My first book is with the publishers now and will be available Sept 2009. The title is “Triple F” – Fifty Fit and Fabulous – Proof that Fitness is for Any Age. I would hope my story would encourage women OF ANY AGE to read and benefit from your magazine. Please log on to my website for more information. I would be proud if you would publish my story that I too am a very proud supporter of being FIT at any age and inspiring others to lead a healthier lifestyle. It is never too late.

I also work full-time managing commercial office buildings, wife, mother of two, grandmother of two, and I completed a Master’s Degree in Organizational Management at age 50. It is fantastic being a woman! My moto about being a Woman and Fit over 50 is it provides me with the confidence I need to be a powerful woman while unleashing the sexy soft side of me that loves to live, laugh, and enjoy all aspects of the most incredible time of my life. – Sharon Simmons (53)
