Powerlifting is a hobby that Edith hesitantly engaged in just nine years ago, but since then, she’s been hooked, and it’s kept her active and healthy.

Proving That She Can

Edith said in an interview when asked what her motivation was, “I saw all these other ladies lifting weights, and it looked interesting. I picked up a couple of weights and had to prove to myself that I could accomplish this.”

People Started Noticing Her


She also said, “Once people found out I was in my 90s and I was doing all of these things, it got to be more noticeable. People got to pay attention a little bit more.”

Bringing Home The Bacon


Because of her motivation and drive, Edith became excellent in what she’s doing and started bringing trophies home.

Back On Track

Because of the pandemic, the doctors insisted she stops lifting or going to the gym for a while, so she backed off for a moment. Now she’s starting from scratch and seeing what else she can accomplish.
