Ernestine Shepherd Knows How to Eggcite Her Eggcercisers!

A few months ago, we shined the spotlight on one of our own long-time devoted customers, Ernestine Shepherd. We caught up with her recently to learn what she's been up to lately. True to form, Ernestine Shepherd has been busy inspiring senior citizens in Baltimore, Maryland to participate in weekly bodybuilding exercises at the local church.

Ernestine's rigorous exercise routine has been a source of inspiration for other senior citizens who wish to be more fit and look more toned. "Some people feel that they can't come into the exercise class because they fear that someone will laugh at them. I reach out to these people to let them know that they too, can exercise" Ernestine says of her students.

"This is how Michelle Obama gets her biceps looking good." Ernestine urges her class of eager exercisers as she coaches them through a set of bicep curls.

At 72, Ernestine Sheperd runs 80 miles a week and lifts weights daily. She has won multiple awards and even first place at a bodybuilding competition. To stay in shape, Ernestine has been faithfully ordering Eggology Egg Whites for the past 7 years--incorporating them into her diet three times every day. "I swear by Eggology Egg Whites!" Ernestine says.

"When you look at her, and you look at are inspired to work a little harder!" one of Ernestine's student exclaims.

It may not be possible for everyone to be able to look like Ernestine Shepherd, especially at age 72. But Ernestine's spirit and welcoming attitude definitely inspires me to get off the couch and go out for a jog, maybe even a 5k! It does not hurt to eat healthy and organic either.
