Super-fit gran with ‘perfect body’ bombarded with messages from men in their 20s


An uber-fit granny sporting the “perfect body” says she is often mistaken for a young model while working out.

Charlene Farnsworth is a mum-of-two and doting grandmother-of-one – as well as a passionate bodybuilder who hits the gym six days a week.

The 52-year-old shares her fitness journey with her 218,000 followers on Instagram, with fellow gym-goers often coming up to her to ask if she is a fitness model, the Mirror reports.

She said: “People often tell me that I look younger than my age but I’m pretty sure its just because of my body,”

“I’m not the shy girl I used to be because I feel good in my skin.”

Charlene added that she is bombarded with messages from men vying for her attention – including men half her age.

But unfortunately for her romantic admirers, Charlene is happily married to husband of 22 years Mike, who lives with in Ontario, Canada.

And it seems she isn’t bothered by the chilly climate of her home city – spending most of her time parading round in a bikini.

Since achieving her incredible physique, Charlene has dabbled in modeling. She’s also now studying to become a personal trainer.

She says Mike’s support is the secret behind the maintenance of her amazing figure and adds the pair are having the best sex of their lives.

She said: “My husband is extremely proud of my accomplishments. He loves the fact that I’ve become so fit and confident.

Charlene exercises for 18 hours a week to maintain her incredible physique.

“When I was less confident, I would worry that I wasn’t good enough, not that my husband ever made me feel that way, it was my own issue.

“Now that I feel so good in my own skin, I never doubt myself. I definitely feel sexier naked now.”

To keep her phenomenal figure in check Charlene has a grueling fitness regime – and she’s revealed just how taxing it can be.

She spends five to six days a week in the gym for three hour sessions and mainly focuses on weightlifting.

Then twice a week, she throws in a cardio session of between 20-30 minutes.

She said: “I work my legs three days a week and split my upper body three days of the week.

“I lift heavy as much as possible, although I have developed an injury in my right shoulder and elbow which has, unfortunately, started to affect my heavy lifting.

I would say weightlifting is the best way to stay fit and lean.”

Charlene is equally disciplined in her diet, which can change depending on whether she’s maintaining her weight or bulking up for a competition.

A typical breakfast would be porridge with protein powder, berries and egg whites. For a morning snack, she’ll eat a chicken breast with rice and red pepper.

At lunch, Charlene will have lean beef mince with rice, salad and low-calorie dressing. An afternoon snack would be almonds, a banana and sweet potato crackers.

For dinner, she’ll have french toast made with just egg whites, protein powder, berries and low-calorie syrup.
