BEAUMARIS lovely Lesley Maxwell proved you can be over 50 and fabulous when she won a World Body Sculpture title in New York last month.
Ms Maxwell, 53, was thrilled to pick up the International Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation Pro-Am title in the women’s open segment - an award she called “the big one”.
“It’s always fun beating the 20-odd-year-olds,” she said.
A mother of three 20-odd-year-olds, Ms Maxwell said a strict diet and exercise routine kept her in shape.
It includes daily walks, weight training and a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. And strictly no alcohol, although she admitted to downing “half a glass” of champagne after winning the title.
“It’s not about looking good for your age, it’s just about looking good,” Ms Maxwell said.
“Age is just a number.”
