    This article was in my email box this morning. I am sorry the pics didn't load. If I can look half way as good at 56, I would be good to go!


    56 YEAR OLD FITNESS PRO, WENDY IDA, WINS FIRST PLACE IN 2009 NPC SAN DIEGO BODYBUILDING, FIGURE AND BIKINI CHAMPIONSHIP


    Wendy Ida


    San Diego, CA (BlackNews.com) - Professional trainer Wendy Ida was the winner of three top trophies in the 2009 NPC San Diego Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Championship on March 21, 2009. Ida won a First Place Gold Medal in the Women 45-plus category, Second Place in the Women, 35-plus category, and Second Place in the Women, Unlimited category.

    Known as the "Fitness Warrior," Wendy Ida is the owner of Wendy Ida Fitness in Los Angeles, CA. Ida is a Nationally Certified Master Trainer and a nutrition specialist who specializes in helping women over age 40 to achieve fitness results. She had never competed in a bodybuilding event before the NPC San Diego Championship.

    Ida, who just turned 57 on May 3, 2009, did not begin her own fitness training until after age 40. When her passion for fitness transformed her body, career and life, she thought it only natural to take her skills to the next level and help other women to achieve their own health and fitness goals.

    "Working out is my cup of coffee in the morning, "says Wendy Ida. "I love how it makes my body smile. But my greatest reward is seeing how I inspire others to step up their game. It's a wonderful thing to see how the power of fitness can set you free."

    Ida is the author of the upcoming book, Take Back Your Life: Wendy Ida's 'No Nonsense' Approach to Health, Fitness and Looking Good Naked! Her book is endorsed by Cindy Popp, Producer and Director of CBS' Bold & the Beautiful; Actress/Recording Artist, Eloise Laws; Professor Sidney E. Morse, Publisher, In the Black California Magazine; Tina Treadwell, Entertainment Producer & President of Treadwell Entertainment; Rickey Ivie, Esq., Ivie, McNeill & Wyatt and others.

    Wendy Ida is nationally certified by ACE (American Council on Exercise) and NCEP (National College for Exercise Professionals). For two seasons, Ida was the assistant Strength and Conditioning coach for the LA Avengers football team.

    The National Physique Committee (NPC) is a top organization for amateur bodybuilders in the United States.

    Wow! Talk about inspiring! Thanks for posting this article! I am 47 and was thinking that I waited too long to get into really good condition and that I wouldn't have much time to get my body back and my conditioning! It's nice to know I still have plenty of time to get the job done!

    I LOVE this! At 48, and being such an outsider in regards to physique competing, I really questioned the wisdom in getting started in competing. Now I'm inspired and re-thinking my decision. Thank you so much.

    Thanks for the info on Diane Sue. My fav inspiration is Marjorie who was in her 80's. She died a year or so ago from leukemia.

    I need all the inspiration I can get!
